Governor for the carburetor . Remove the nut from the top of the air breather. Remove the air filter. Place them where they are not going to get too dirty. Remove the spark plug wire and the spark plug. Smell of threads if strong smell of fuel . Set aside for a while. Looking down into the carburetor move the throttle cable lever. If you can see the choke open and close freely .check the spark plug gap. Should be .040 reinstall spark plug. Looking at the side of the carburetor the will be a screw with a little rod that is going to the engine. There's a small plate attached to another rod see if it moves free if so go back to the screw adjust it in til stops. Don't try forcing the screw past it's stopping point them loosen the same screw 3/4 turn. That's it. Starting the engine it should run smoothly if not replace the spark plug.

18hp ohv cuts out after it gets warm or hot like it is running out of gas


I have a 12.5 hp Briggs & Stratton on a Murray that did that. The carburator is right above the muffler and when I replaced the muffler, I didn't put the heat shield between the muffler and carburator back on. The added heat from the muffler was vaporizing the gas in the carburator where the engine would no longer run once it got hot. Replacing my heat shield and putting a longer pipe on the muffler to get it away from the carburator solved my problem.

Where to find the spark pug on my 21inch 139cc mtd ohv lawn mower


It should be under a rubber boot between the valve cover *(stamped OHV or OHC) and the muffler.

Good luck and be careful. Dont pull that boot when the engine is hot!

Sounds like a mice in your muffler. Its stuck, stop using it, you'll be damaging the valve on the motor. Remove it and test it. Try to remove thing in, i know some people put it in the fireplace to turn it red and burn things (like mice) inside and open up things...

Could someone tell me how to remove the muffler on a Craftsman 25cc weedwacker?


Look at the plastic cover that covers the muffler. There is probably something that you have to depress to remove it. Once removed you should be able to see the bolts that hold the muffler on.

18hp/ohv craftsman 42in wont crank


One thing to check, see if there is a piece of root stuck under the tractor there is interrupting any of the security features from allowing the tractor to start. It might be a small piece that stops a plunger from engaging.
