Question about Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

Tecumseh 6hp engine

Working on neighbors power washer to get it to run I took off & cleaned carborator? I think I have the linkages reversed to the throttle plate because it runs ok if I hold the throttle open. There is a lever from the governor with a couple of bends so it could be reversed. One wire linkage to it with bends to get out of the way of a spring on the other linkage. Also, the lever on the governor is attacned to another that could be flopped 180 degrees. So where can I get a picture that shows the 2 holes of throttle, 2 wire links one with a spring, 2 holes on the governor lever, that levers orientation, and the lever its attached to position forward or reverse. Karcher has changed to Honda, tech help said go look at one in store, 2 places they recommend don't sell Karcher any more. Tecumseh online has the owner manual but no details of this area. Any ideas where to get the info i need. Thanks

Well no matter which way you turn that little linkage rod it either pushes or pulls. the bends are put there to keep it from hanging up on other things such as springs. try reversing the rod .the holes are a matter of opening the throttle should be 2 or 3 holes on one side of flat plate of stem for throttle plate. put the rod in the one that when in full open pushes the butterfly all the way open on the throttle.. also go to jacks small engines .com and select the motor type and just look at the schematic of the carb. you'll have to sign as a member and all that hooey but it don't cost nothing. just follow directions is all.

I have a Robin eh 34 engine in a Simpson power washer. The engine starts and runs but wont rev much past a fast idle. Carb has been cleaned thoroughly. gas is fresh. Suggestions

Butch if carb was good and clean and linkages were re installed properly including governor, it is possible the throttle tab/lever (what linkage hooks to) is loose on the shaft that opens the throttle butter fly. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How do i hook up the throttle cable on a 6hp tecumseh go cart motor

That depends on the routing of the cable.generic questions will usually get you a generic answer. good luck.should be some sort of linkage by the carb with a spring return to move the throttle to the idle position.make sure you dont screw this part up or you might have a nasty surprise when you go to take your foot off the throttle and you have a run away.

OK i have a 91 honda civic hatchback and the engine was runs fine...however when i start it cranks for awhile before it starts...the starter and battery are fine however the carborator sticks...

That flap is automatic the choke. Not the throttle. Cleaning it should restore normal operation. Avoid spray plastic parts if there is any such as plastic bushing used in carburator linkage, other than that I cant think of any bigger underlying problem. Avoid prolonged high speed on rebuilt engines untill its broken in(500 miles)
