Hello to all it's been awhile since my last post.
My problem is that since i got my 990 when I move the throttle up to fast it always tends to start creeping down while running. I figured that somebody probably has had the same issue themselves.
I was thinking that i might be able to squeeze the outer jacket around the throttle cable but i was hoping it was just a simple ajustment.
I pulled out the 990 out yesterday just to clean out under the blower housing and cleaned up the flywheel and coil. today it's about 0 degrees and nothing going on at the shop today.
Thanks for any input.
Randy:thanku:

There was a little friction disk that provided some resistance to the throttle doing what you describe. Your tractor is push 40 - the little disk is worn out.

So, take a small chain and a hook like I did, and fashion a throttle lock chain. There're all the rage!

Mine is doing the same and I'm thinking I'll just remove that rivet were the throttle lever pivots (with the little spring washers and friction disc) and replace it with a bolt and locknut. Adjustable :)

Randy, Carl explained it better than I did. And yes, drilling that rivet, replacing the friction disk, with a thin piece of leather or something, and locking it down with a bolt and locknut is the proper way to fix it. But my way is much more *******. :trink40:
