Question about Mtd Yard - Man 160cc, 21" Self - Propelled Lawn Mower
Mr. Forbes, the round cover beneath the carb is the float bowl and you most likely put the seal on incorrectly seal when you replaced it. One of the worst things to do for a small engine is run starter fluid through it, these small engines either run or don't running starter fluid does not solve problems. You must find the problem through elimination process. Your problem though I think lies in the governor spring maybe somehow it got stretched or loosened up somehow along your process of tune up or repair or whatever you call it. If of course it is a constant rev hi low for a period of time. There is a rubber seal around the larger portion of the float bowl and usually a fiber gasket of some sort around the screw, you must have both in place to seal correctly. You also said you cleaned the round thing, was there anything inside of it when you cleaned it? This could also lead you to a solution.
