Look down on the left side of the engine where the throttle cable attaches to the control linkage. There is a bolt that holds the black plastic cable in a clamp like device. Losen the bolt and slide the cable back toward the handle / grass catcher in the housing just a bit. Tighten the bolt and then start and test your engine shut off with the throttle contol lever in the stop position. You may have to adjust it a couple of times. If after the adjustment(s) it still does not start, then there is a problem with the kill wire switch on the engine's control linkage.

Follow the cable to make sure it isn't stuck. If the cable moves freely, check that the flywheel brake and any attached springs are connected properly. These are usually under the pull start cover.

Craftsman Riding Mower (24 HP 42 in cut Model 289254) with throttle issue. Very slow in 6th gear


follow the throttle cable all the way down to the engine. Have some one move the throttle up and down to see if the throttle plate is opening and closing all the way. You can loosen the screw holding the throttle cable and move it back and forth to see if it will allow the throttle plate to open and close correctly. It may have slipped when the assembler tried to tighten it.

I have A Scott Bonner lawn mower ,high performance,overhead cam, SX 4000, 4 stroke.I am finding it very difficult to start the cold mower every time I go to mow the lawn.It takes me about half an hour of...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

The symptoms you describe are typical of debris in the fuel bowl of the carb. I am going to assume for the moment that it is a similar to a Briggs and Stratton engine. Engine model type and serial information is what we work with to resolve engine problems regardless of the mower brand. I note you said it was a Scott Bonner SX4000 engine. I am also assuming that you have the 18 inch GreenKeeper like this one:
http://www.rovermowers.co.nz/www/rover/Home.nsf/13a851504c93cb754a257821000cfc6b/$FILE/28045.pdf

I do not have access to Scott Bonner Engine parts or technical data but if you clean out the fuel float bowl and it is still hard to start then the choke function of the engine is not working. Your engine has a "Bowl drain" screw on the bottom of the carb float bowl for removing carb debris or water in addition to a bowl nut.

Most likely due to the throttle cable needing and adjustment so that the choke is closed when choke is selected. Adjustment of the throttle cable is as simple as losening the clamp screw (Do NOT remove it) on the side of the carb throttle control and moving the throttle to STOP then re-tightening the clamp retaining screw. This should allow your choke to move full closed when selected. You may have to experiment with full throttle and STOP throttle control positions with the clamp screw loose but not removed to see which position will give you full throttle, choke and STOP. After each adjustment you MUST tighten the clamp screw to test the throttle cable travel on the the throttle plate. Beleive it or not... the person that assemble the mower made the intial throttle adjustment. It may have never been tested before you got the mower.

If you still have problems.... this is the brief way to start an engine that has choke problems. Remove the spark plug and squirt a splash of gas into the spark plug hole and then re-install the spark plug. Just don't over-do the splash of gas and if your messy wipe off the excess so you do not start a fire. (This method always works but you occasionally foul a spark plug with too much gas)

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

How to set the linkages and adjust a carburettor on a Honda HRU 195 mower


Turn the engine off, Put the throttle
lever to the HIGH position. Loosen the
pinch bolt nut on the governor arm a
turn or two; just enough that the arm will
move on its shaft.

With one hand, move the governor
arm so that the throttle plate of the
carburettor is wide open. With your other
hand, use smallish pliers that's
why there is a flat on the shaft to turn
the shaft in the same direction. Hold
everything in that position and tighten
the pinch bolt.


You've just taken all the slack out of the governor linkage.

Recheck the choke, idle and maximum RPM
and you've done all the adjusting
you can do.

How do i adjust the idle on my 1995 yamaha virago 1100 cc motorcycle?


On most bikes and four wheelers, this is done by a throttle stop. the position of the stop is usually adjusted by a screw. Remove the tank. turn throttle and see what moves by the carb/ injectors. When you return throttle to idle, the moving piece will come to rest on the throttle stop. You can now adjust its position by turning that screw.

Hello rfbarrett:

From your Description it Sounds like the Plate that is Attached to the Carburetor (that the Throttle cable Attaches to) Thru Shaft (holds and Moves the Throttle Valve) has Loosened and is Simply Turning on the Thru Shaft and Not Moving the Thru Shaft and Throttle Valve at All.

Sounds like you are hitting the governor. Watch the arms at the carb when you move it to full throttle. The arm should hit a screw. Turn this screw clockwise, until the reving stops.

You either have a vacuum leak at the intake manifold or the idle speed control stepper motor is defective.
