Re: Rejetting a 6.5 HP Duraforce
I can't answer the Loctite question, tho the folks in the Walkbehind section may be able to help. Lots of info on rejetting down there. Some have also found that the Duraforces came out with the wrong throttle plate, causing a surge. My duraforce never surged for years, then started. I pulled out the jet (behind the small pc of tape on the side of the carb), sprayed it with cleaner, ran a fine wire thru it, and no more surge.
Good Luck, and like I mentioned, tons of info down in the Walkbehind section on this procedure.
