Throttle linkage installation

I have a Poulan 4000 that I let sit for several years. I pulled the carb & put a kit in it. Now I cannot figure out how the throttle linkage goes back on. are there drawings or photos available that might bail me out of this one?

I have an older poulan pro 18 hp ohv.kohler engine. Tried adjusting throttle linkage to get more rpm. the throttle /carburator linkage plate has adjustment also. In what order do you start adustments


The Kohler is design for 3600 Max rpm with it developing peak torque at 2200 rpm 42.5 N·m (31.4 ft. lb.)

If your trying to go above the 3600 rpm then your only risking damaging the engine plus causing unnessary wear and tear on it.

Throttle connections on poulan pro 210 chainsaw


The precision bent throttle connecting rod can only go in one way CORRECTLY.... if it has to be forced or bent, stop and figure out the puzzle before any damage is done.

I'd suggest placing the carb temporarily on the mounting studs on the side of the cylinder. Don't install the filter and nuts etc yet. Take the throttle rod and lay it in place this way and that way until it looks like it matches the trigger end AND the carb end. Usually the carb end has to be installed on the carb while it is removed from the engine as tightness of space won't allow moving it all over to poke it in the hole. Once it is on the carb and you are sure of the orientation, slide the carb once again over the studs and lay the throttle rod by the trigger.

You need about three hands to hold the trigger, trigger lock, trigger return spring and the handle together while you figure out how to snap in the top of the handle and start a screw under the handle.

Engine will start and idle but stalls as soon as the throttle is pulled


This is typical of fuel starvation at the carburetor. If this unit has been sitting for awhile with fuel in it, the carb will need to be rebuilt with a kit or replaced. Once old fuel sits up in the carb it damages the check valve inside and/or hardens the diaphragms. Carb kits will work 50% of the time. Thanks, George

83 yamaha enticer 300 wont start. if i use starting fluid directly into cylinders it runs and dies


Check for your accelerator pump is pumping fuel directly into the engine when you rotate the throttle, if not then you probably need a carburator fuel pump kit. (usually located on the outside of the carbs). However, through following the mechanical linkage, you can see that it leads directly to the little pump assembly as well.

Good luck my friend.

Thottle will no stay in one position. There is a black spacer that slides over the throttle shaft between the shaft an the leaver. Will a new leaver come with that black spacer. Blower model wt200


Three (3) possible carbs were available on your machine.
If you have:
Walbro model WT-606 carb, the choke and throttle levers are available in kit form (which leads me to believe the spacer comes with them). Throttle lever kit part #530071726 and choke lever kit part #530071725.

If you have:
ZAMA model C1Q-W11 carb, the choke AND throttle levers are BOTH a part of the carb itself. (Would need a whole carb to get your part.) Complete carb part #530071465.

If you have:
ZAMA model C1Q-W11C carb, the choke and throttle levers are available in kit form (which leads me to believe the spacer comes with them). Throttle lever kit part #530071715 and choke lever kit part #530071716.

Hope this helps.

Poulan Lawntractor 13.5HP throttle linkage missing


The easiest thing for you to do is look at another mower that has a single cylinder Briggs at how the linkage is set up. They will all be the same linkage from 12 hp- 20 hp.

POULAN 200 mph blower. New spark plug last fall.


You will need to check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks.

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

(NOTE: If the carburetor parts are more than four years old, and depending on the use, you will need a new carb. kit if the cleaning doesn't work.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Can,t hardley pull starter cord. I've removed muffler and carb. It will pull fine if the spark plug is removed (w/or with carb and or muffler . this is a poulan pro 18"


What i have to occasionally do for a chain saw after it sits all winter is to put something like WD40 in the spark plug hole and crank it over several times. What happens to me is that the piston gets gunked up from the gas that ran down into it during the winter and it won't crank over hardly at all. This is probably your problem. I have also found that if i store my saws with the tank down, the gas cant get into the carb and do this. (Although it's better to drain tank).
If this has been a running saw instead of a stored one, you probably need a rebuild kit if the piston is scored.

Mechanical question


That's interesting, I have run throttle cables for many years with minimal stretching. Are you tightening the lock nut at the adjustment? And are you sure you have the cables adjusted properly? Specifically the return cable, if it is too tight it will conflict with the primary cable, this will cause the primary cable to (over time) pull on and eventually stretch the return cable. Try loosening the return cable, then with the throttle wide open ,tighten the return until it has just "a hair" of free play. Then adjust the throttle to where it has just a very small amount of free play ,then tighten the lock nuts. Then check to be sure the return cable has some play when the throttle is closed and if necessary re-adjust.
