New here. I like walk behind mowers, specifically Lawn Boy. I have a freind here (don't know his handle), and he told me this was the place to be. BTW...why are all the other threads locked? I want some advise.

Nice to meet you.

coolted, it takes about an hour or so before you can post in the other forums. This is to keep spammers from posting all over the site. You'll be OK in about another 30 minutes or so! Enjoy the site!

Hi Taylor. hand drilling jets on wednesday, maybe thursday. I'll let you know how it went. Although I know a machinist, I'm gonna try it by hand. Got the bits and a pin-vise from Grainger.

Its pretty easy, you won't need a machinist....essentially you are just boring it out ohhh soo little. Its barely a shave but should make a big difference if its surging.

For the life of me, I can't find my paperwork for the drillbits or my Starrett micrometer to tell you what I drilled. I can tell yuo that the idle and main circuits work together, and that the low idle surging was cured, but the high idle (WOT) is very rough. I have learned a little on this project. Man, putting that carb back on is a real PIA. can't wait to do it again...
