On top of carb you will see a jet that is slotted,remove with screw driver and use a very thin wire to clean out hole in jet.Some had a black metal clamp holding it in place,remove that one by removing phillips screw,black clamp then use small pliers to pull jet out of top side of carb.If this does not work remove carb bowl and jetting in bottom-center of carb and clean jetting holes with a small copper wire.The mixture screw is for low speed air/fuel mix,this engine does not have a high speed fuel screw.Fixed jet.

ADJUST THE GOVENOR ON MY LT 155 John Deere lawn tractor


This should be Kawasaki engine; although, it could a Kohler. The IPL on this doesn't specify which engine it has. It would nice if it did where I could look the engine's service manual but the following should be what you need.

You place throttle in full throttle position. You need to watch the linkage at the governor shaft for which it turns as you go to full throttle then you would continue turning the governor shaft in that direction until it stops. From there you tighten the retaining bolt or nut and you should be good to go.

FC420V Kawasaki back fires thru carb on cold start,runs and starts fine after difficult startts


It sounds like your valves may need to be adjusted...
if they are too lose or worn they won't seat properly and when the engine fires it blows back through the intake valve.
pull the cover and see if the rockers are loose... it only takes one to give you a headache.

A,b,g Tractor Carburetor Float Dltx10: i had my john deere riding mower running then shut...


My John Deere only starts with a hammer. I have the Kawasaki engine and it is famous for bad starters, so I carry a hammer and tap on the bolt when I want to start it. So, you either have a bad solenoid in your starter, or the contacts are dirty, battery connections are dirty. Or the battery is dieing. Check it out. Hope this helps.
