Is your speed adjuster on the handle working properly? if not there should be a screw holding the cable on the engine Loosen that screw and push or pull to speed the engine then tighten back up.If that don't work there should be a spring coming out the to of the carb and if it speeds up when you push or pull it you can shorten or lengthen that spring. Which ever you need.

SOURCE: honda lawn mower wheel drive works, but needs adjustment, how?

Take the covers off the drive,there should be a hollow bolt the cable comes thru, it should have 2 adjustment nuts This lengthens or shorts the cable. There also may be a adjustment on the handle.

Husqvarna riding mower modle yth20k46 that move very slow

The link rod from the petal to the transmission straightened out at the rear bend. Take it off and bend it slightly further to make it go forward faster. The 1/2" nut above where the rod connects to the transmission is adjustable to set it where it doesn't move when your foot is off the petal. Loosen it a bit and you can move the petal slightly forward or backward to adjust it. Depending on how much you bent the rod it won't take much adjustment. Re-tighten and try it out. It may take a few tries. Good luck!

Honda 1132 one year old commercial use now has high high compression on startup making it v hard to pull. runs fine once started

Sounds to me like the decompressor is not working.You need to find out what this engine uses for a decompressor,whether it be a valve adjustment thing or a linkage thing,the dealership service manager should be able to give you some guidance.

I have a zero turn, liquid cooled exmark mower that has hyrdrolic steering. my problem is that when you want to go forward, the left side(sitting on mower) is so much slower than the right,so i have to...

Lift the seat up and look for (rods) that run from the pump to the control sticks. There is a jam nut on these treaded rods, one for each hydro unit, use a marker and mark the position of the jam nut on the rod on the slow side, left you said. loosen the jam nut and turn the treaded rod a couple of turns one direction, then try the mower and see if it is faster on that side or slower, if it is slower then turn the treaded rod the oppisite direction that you just turned, If it is faster then it was before then adjust the rod till it is the same speed as the other side is. Tighten jam nut.

You need to adjust the gas pedal. Info should be in the owners manual. I have it in my Troy Bilt Bronco manual. It say to adjust it in my book after replacing the trans drive belt. Maybe that will help.

Engine has no power

Lets assume that your air filter is clean and the gasoline is fresh (i.e. not more than a couple months old). I have heard a lot of complaints about the carburetor on the Honda 160 cc engine. Some of the folks that have bought mowers with Honda engines have taken them back during the warranty period to Home Depot for exchanges to brands with Briggs engines. If it is outside of the warranty period, find a reputable shop to rebuild the carb.

Self Propel Slow

You can change the smaller pulley out for a little bit larger one, ( 1 or 2 inches larger). This will make it go a little faster.
