Check the valve clearances. There is no adjustment for the valves and they do dig themselves into their seats. File the inlet valve to give it a slight bit of clearance, about 0.005". Leave the exhaust valve just touching the tappet to act as a valve lifter for easier starting, The valves and tappets are accessed through the cover in the crankcase under the muffler.

Hi, check your air filter, also check your oil level is not over full as it may have become diluted with fuel. Let me know. Regards Phil.

hi there

danielburgi

1 almost sounds like you may have a restriction in the main jet of the carburettor or idle circuit transtional holes or idle air bleed holes , also check emulsion tube

2 then if these are all ok try adjusting governor - as soon as load exceeds power output - unit will try and stall- once governor adjusted re-try -

3 the only other thing it may be is too low compression which ia major concern

try 1 and 2 options 1st


3 is the last option which means a leak test to check compression loss or worn rings



cheers pauly46

hope it helps

When I lower the blade deck on my Troy Bilt mower


If it is a 2 cylinder with a set of bent valve push rods on one side it may well start and sound good, but it will not be able to do the work as only one cylinder is functional. I had a similar problem on a B&S V2. Pull the plug wires off one at a time. If it makes no difference with one plug wire off and is totally dead with the other plug wire off, then you have a dead cylinder.
