I was afraid a new carb body was going to be the cure. Even the $40 throttle shaft (maybe this could be found more cheaply than partstree) is an expensive fix, especially for Mowers I didn't pay more than $50 for. But of course, if I want them to last, they can't be sucking in dirt and running lean. Will think about this and any other possible fix.

The alum. body wears much sooner. That bore can be bushed and reamed with a bronze or steel sleeve for a long lasting mikuni. Hardest part is removing the butterfly without causing damage.

Re: Suzuki Govornor Inards

I am very tempted by this guy's suggestion.

Anyone here have experience subbing in a Honda carb for the Mikuni? I'd probably buy 5 honda carbs for spares given the 2 mowers and 'new' CCR3000 snowblower I just bought last weekend.

Nope, but it sure does sound like an alternative solution to a long standing problem -Toro's price$ on obsolete parts. For $15-$20 for an entire carb, its worth reaming a jet and ovaling out a couple holes. Hafta look into this.

Re: Suzuki Govornor Inards

Well, I got itchy a few nights ago and spent ~$30 and ordered all the parts. Sure hope this works!

Should have everything here by sometime next week, then I can stop filling up this thread and will start another with my results.

Re: Suzuki Govornor Inards

I've been thinking about this quite a bit since you posted the Honda carb option. You are doing the community a huge service by trying this for us and I'm willing to bet there are many people interested in it or at least will be once you post your results. If you can, take some pics of any mods you had to do get it to fit.

Its not the most powerful lawnmower engine BUT if the 2-stroke suzuki achilles heel is cheaply and easily fixed with a replacement carb (that doesn't cost $200) then........is it the perfect lawnmower engine?

Well said, thats why this site is such a pleasure to be a part of. Sharing information has made a huge savings on time and money for many of us. I am truly grateful for the help you more experienced gentlemen have always offered.

Fortunately when I first started grabbing up mowers, in the last year or so, I stocked up on any Zuki parts I could find.

I stocked up on zuki's...and mikuni's, but all the darn mikunis I bought cheap seem to have this problem! I'm realizing the Kawi FC150V I sold had a touch of this too -- it wouldn't quite throttle all the way down when warm either.

Well, I have my 1950s Briggs to keep my hands dirty until this project arrives!
