Can you blow through the filter? It's the stuff you can't see that clogs filters.There is a little trash in the filter, but I wouldnt think its a nuff to stop it up like that. I will change it tho and see if that works. cause it will sit there and run, but dies shorty after I engage the mower
Did you loosen the screw holding the gov.in adjustment?When I suggested wot & ck gov.What you do is to move the throddle cable to high and watch gov.if it lets engine scream or does it pull it down as it should?3200 to 3600 is about right for wot.There are steps to set gov.correctly,if your not sure,please ask.:trink40:I havent watched it with the mower going, but I was messing with it one day, doing some adjustments and it would rev high and low it that tells you anything?
