SOURCE: Racing of a Honda 160 CC lawn mower engine

When a small engine "surges" in all speed ranges the possible causes are:

*Dirty air filter

*Water or contamination in the fuel system.

*Breaks in the spark plug wire (leaking), loose or corroded terminal connections causing an intermittent failure.

*Misadjusted or malfunctioning governor.

Problems with surging only when under load or at idle are likely caused by carb blockage or misadjustment.

Hope this helped and good luck to ya!

check the mechanism first before changing the gearbox its possible that the cable might jump out from the pulley or the cable is worn out or its possible that the gear on the tire is worn out to if not then that would be the time for you to change the gear box it would be hard to change it if you don't have the right tools to work on it if you know how everything work its not that hard to replace it just make sure were everything goes memorize the parts before disassembling cause that would be you guide to reassemble it...goodluck

HOW DO I REPLACE THE SELF PROPELLED ON MY HONDA MOWER. MODEL HRX217HXA


http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=281234

Good pictures on this link to follow. I found it eaiser if you put your mower on a work bench or 2 sawhorse with plywood on them. Read everything on the link for your plan before you start. When you finish you will feel you can fix anything on the mower. Hope this will do the trick for you. Good luck!

What type of oil do you use for 6.5 hp yardman lawn mower mtd 160cc 21 inch self propelled


The manual will call for 30 weight, but 10w30 works just fine. Be careful to not overfill the crankcase. Your machine will take 16 - 18 oz's when the crankcase is empty.

How to speed up motor on yardman self propelled lawnmower


You could disconnect the governor linkage at the carburetor and just connect the throttle cable (if it has one) directly to the butterfly plate on the carb. Aftermarket throttle cables (one size fits all) for push mowers are available. If you go this route, be careful not to over rev the motor (esp. when not under load) as you could possibly throw a rod or float a valve.
