Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools
My problem started when my 6.5hp Tecumseh engine would die after running for about 7-10 seconds. I removed the carburetor, and cleaned it with brake-cleaner and compressed air. After I placed the carburetor back unto the engine, some improvement was immediately noticed. The engine would no longer stall, and continue running but the rpm's was very low. I turned a set-strew that is located on the carburetor clock-wise, until I reached a desired rpm, and everything had appeared to be OK. But, when I went to use the mower, and would hit a patch of grass, the mower wanted to stall, and acted as if it don't much torque/hp. The engine seeems weak when put to the task, and acted like a 2.5hp or 3hp engine. I called a couple of Toro repair shops here in the area, and had one of the repair shops to suggest that I had/have contaminated fuel, or bad piston rings, but the engine doesn't smoke...just a little when I first start the engine. I had the other repair shop to suggest that the problem could be with the governor; that theory I'm more inclined to agree with. Do you have any suggestions, as to what my problem may be???
SOUND LIKE THE NEEDLE OR FLOAT IS BAD IN THE CARB. I SUGGEST GETTING CARB REBUILD IT DOES COST THAt MUCH.
