You have a dingo, ugh
I would suspect a bad pump or wheel motor if the rpms are set correctly and no safety switches are causing it to die...

My Toro Personal Pace mower will not come up to normal full idle.


If this is a Briggs and stratton engine, there should be a screw that holds the carburetor bowl. Remove that screw and look for a hole that runs through the middle of the screw from side to side just above the treads. Clean with a thin wire or maybe a paper clip. Then clean the perpendicular hole in the screw that runs from top to bottom. Reassemble and attempt to run. In my experience, if you don't have success at this point, you can buy a new carburetor on amazon for about $20. Install and your good to go.

Good luck to you!
Ben.

Ihave a honda generator with a gx 390 motor volt drops when i put a load on it what could it be


Voltage regulator, carbon buildup in the cylinders, the carburetor may need overhauling, engine governor may have a stretched spring, Spark plug may need replacing, Timing may be off, air filter may need changing, and lastly, your load may exceed the ability of the generator.Checking this list will uncover the loss of power

Is there an adjustment to increase hydraulic power on Komatsu pc35mr-2 mini excavator? Or is there a sensor that is responsible for relationship between engine rpm and hydraulic operation?


you assumption is right
the pump is operating at idle as at full rpms and is controlled by pressure relief valves
When demand for pressure is low the valves will be partially opened and will operate when the pressure is reduced ( ram valve is moved)
Higher rpms maintain the pressure for faster ram operation
I would suggest that you have the system pressure tested by a service centre as it could be a malfunctioning valve (solenoid) or a failing pump

I have a CCR 3650 Snow Blower ,The engine is racing at idle. How do I adjust?


Try the spring on the governor. sounds like it's not hooked up, or extremely week. I rebuild and sell these all winter. I've had it happen a few times. Runs really good! but, will ruin the motor running over speed like that. There are adjustments- some have the spring on a long flange of metal so it can be bent backwards to add tension- it doesn't take much! If the motor starts to rev up and down and up and down, add a hair more tension. It there is too much tension it will stall out when you hit heavy snow.

I have a Honda GX 390 with 13 hp power washer. Overheating.


Make sure the engine is not full of paint or dust debris in it's cooling system. If the fuel mixture setting is very lean, it can cause overheating. Make sure the fuel tank vent is open to prevent fuel starvation. Does the engine seem to be running at full operational speed? If not, it will be short on developed horsepower. Make sure the water source is not partially shut off. Hope some of this helps!

Tune a ryobi two stroke motor


Turn Both Air Mixture Screws In Until Seated. **DO NOT JAM SNUG ONLY** Turn Both Screws Out 1 1/2 Turns. Set the Throttle to Full Open and Start the Engine. Override the Throttle by Pushing the Governor Arm by Hand and Turn the High Air Mixture Screw(bottom of the bowl) In Until the Engine is Revving Properly. Now Slow Engine to Idle. Set the Low Air Mixture Screw so there is No Hesitation when Throttling from Idle to Full Throttle. Now Set the Idle if Required.

Honda gx 390 only starts when it feels like it


Sometimes you have to lower the air pressure in the tank to allow it to run. The back pressure from the compressed air in the compressor head overcomes the pressure created in the engine at the slow RPMs you are able to pull while attempting to crank it.

2004 Honda Civic -Code P0122 Throttle Position Sensor Voltage Low


yes, this is the case of a failed throttle body, in which case it needs replaced, the car is getting too much fuel causing the high idle. this needs replaced asap. you could proably find a small independant honda shop that could do the work for less.
