A gasoline engine is made to rev up only so fast. If it revs or speeds up too fast it will blow up. Each engine has a rpm limit. There are springs and settings on the carb that controls this and you should not have to worry about it if some one has checked it out. They are just making sure your engine will not rev up too high.

I own an old Victa LawnKeeper that has a Tecumseh four stroke motor. What spark plug suits it? There is nothing on the motor itself and the plug is gone! Does anyone know?

most any mower spark plug will fit
all you have to be aware of is the thread length
you can measure it with a bit of bent wire from inside the head to the plug seat and any plug with that length will fit

My Toyota diesel engine type 2kd ( Hilux 2006 pick-up WD)has a problem on fuel system, sometimes engine check lamp become on, engine RPM goes down , when switch off the engine and re-started back the

Please write back with a lot more information, the more i know from you, the faster we can get this fixed. Please explain what you have done or not done recently. I don't know if a oil change was done or the fuel filter, or that these symptoms just occurred out of the blue. My first guess is that your "Fuel Light" came on because a restriction was noticed at your fuel filter. It may just mean that you need to service the fuel system (replace the fuel filter). Please write back and I will do my best to help you resolve this problem. If you still have the owners manual, take a look inside. It contains a lot of valuable information pertaining to warning lights, maintenance intervals, and so on. Let me know how you are doing, good luck.

Victa ultima 207cc eng mod ult50 tecumseh starts runs for 15 sec then stops

it's in the carburetor. If it runs while being forced fuel then it means that the carb isn't supplying enough if any fuel for it to run on it's own. Take the carb apart as far as you can and make sure all the little orifices are clean

2000 Yamaha V-Max Idles low then takes revs

Hi, Shaneharris5 you need to make sure you have no intake leaks by spraying some Brake Kleen, Contact Cleaner, Starting Fluid etc. around the intake manifold and seals, if the RPM's go up or down significantly then you have a leak that needs to be fixed before you can continue with the carburetor adjustment.
The engine should be at operating temperature with the enrichener off to set the idle between 950-1050 rpm. Turn the idle skrew clockwise to increase the idle speed and counterclockwise to decrease the idle speed. If you have access to your air fuel mixture skrew you may turn it as well, if not there is a video below on how to gain access, make sure you start with clean or new spark plugs. Gently turn the air fuel mixture skrew clockwise until it starts to bottom out "STOP" do not over tighten as it will damage the taper on the end, now back the skrew out 1-1/2 full turns to establish a starting point start the engine and check the idle rpm's and turn the idle skrew accordingly for 950-1050 rpm if necessary, turn the air fuel mixture skrew 1/4 turn at a time and let the engine settle for about 10 seconds, turn the skrew clockwise for a leaner mixture and counterclockwise for a richer mixture, you are seeking the highest rpm your air fuel mixture skrew can acquire without going past 3 full turns from bottom then resetting the idle skrew back down to 950-1050 rpm If you can not detect any rpm change and can not stall the engine by turning the air-fuel mixture skrew all the way in then your pilot/low-speed jet is too big and needs to be replaced with the next size smaller. Final adjustment should be made with a clean air filter mounted to the carburetor.

Have motor at 1750 RPM..5 1/2 inch pulley have arbor shaft at 3 1/2 inches.. Prior solution by guru had link to calculation website .. link was no good.. no more links please !! need unit if possible...

You simply need a pulley 3.5 times the diameter of the Drive. Say 1750RPM reduced to say 500RPM. So Divide 1750 x 500 = 3.5. /10 It is simply a "Ratio" Therefore we need a reduction of 0.35:1 or 1:.0.35 meaning every full revolution on the "Drive" means .35 Revolution on the "Driven". So if your Drive pulley is say 5" Diam, you will need the Driven to be 17.5". So the Drive make 1750 Revolutions, the Driven makes 500. Use whatever actual figure you like, simply "Scale" up or down. Hope this helps.

I dont wont to 500 dollars to get a 30000 mile check up is there a cheaper way

You can certainly reduce the cost of the check up if you have the skills and knowledge to do some of the work yourself.

Basic jobs like checking and adjusting the fluid levels, tyres, and replacement of lube, filters and spark plugs are all relatively straightforward. Checking the brake discs (US=rotors) & pad wear/replacement is a bit more involved but easy if you know how and have the tools and experience. Many other things though including the service interval reset, emissions check/adjust and engine adjustments have to be done by a correctly equipped garage.

Consider this carefully though as you clearly aren't a qualified motor mechanic so DIY servicing will invalidate your warranty and very significantly reduce the resale value of your Mustang. You can shop around though to see if you can get a better price but $500 for a major 30k mile service on a car like yours seems pretty cheap already.
