Not sure about the "extra jet" on te side of the carb without a specific model, but running smoothly with half choke indicates that your mixture is lean. Choking it richens the mixture.

The extra jet may be your idle stop, or it could be the idle mixture adjustment.

When the engine is not running the throttle is held wide open by the governor arm/spring. Varnish in carb most likely kept throttle stuck in the open position until small amount of gas in carb was consumed. Check your linkage /governor spring to make sure it is working properly. With engine off you should be able to move throttle closed easily and it should go to full after you release. After you adjust governor and are ready to start engine be ready to manually control throttle if engine begins to run at full speed. Runaway engine could have damaged the centrficical force style governor mech inside of the engine. As the engine starts have your finger on the throttle linkage, push the throttle open and you should feel the governor push against your pressure. Now as for the carb itself, blowing air thru the orifices is not sufficient. You must clean fuel passages with fine wire removing debris being carefull not to distort passage (make larger). Check that fuel runs from tank to carb with out restriction. Finally empty tank of fuel and use premium fuel for a while to help get power back up to normal. Good luck

I need a new robin subaru thottle body r1100


I believe this generator uses a carburetor.
Try calling Jack's Small Engines during their business hours; I don't see a carburetor listed separately and it may be very expensive.

You may be able to just clean the carburetor you have and save a lot. The video isn't the exact engine but it is close.

I have a homelite LR4300 with the 7.5 HP Subaru engine. The governor is not working. Whats the poblem?


Unclear when stated that there is a governor issue? I assume you have a Robin/Subaru 7.5 H.P. engine model EY280YD2510 with erratic behavior leading up to stalling out when a load is applied or the generator is at no load status after several minutes of run time?. Couple of things to check would be starting with the fuel system. Is there stale gas in the fuel tank? Have you verified fuel flow from tank? Is the fuel cutoff valve free of debris? Is the carb fuel bowel been removed and inspected for varnish? Is the air cleaner clean? Next, Ignition system. Have you inspected the flywheel for excessive rust? Have you reset the air gap on the ignition module? Does the on/off switch work (measured with a meter for continuity?) Any visual signs of damage with all wiring or the ignition module itself? I once thought I had an governor issue where the issue ended up being that the flywheel was corroded to the point that once the engine was fully warmed up the control module would contact the rust build up on the flywheel causing engine surges no matter what the load was on the generator, and at times would stall the engine. Clean flywheel off if necessary and reset the air gap on the ignition module. If that fails then inspect the governor spring (the top spring on the carb. linkage assembly) for excessive rust that will change the tension on the governor arm.Replace if in doubt! When doing all this inspecting ensure you have fresh fuel, oil, air filter, spark plug gapped correctly, and ignition module that has been tested as sound! These Robin engines are smooth running heavy duty engine that will perform for many years if taken care of. Good luck!

I have a subaru r1700 inverter in the shop that I work at. It came in with the carb really varnished, tried cleaning it out but still it would only run for a few seconds and stop. So we have recently put...


Hello Matt,
Did you check compression and spark? I would check compression, should have at least 60 psi. Then hook up spark tester and run unit. Observe spark tester when unit dies to see if you still have spark or not when unit bogs down. This should give you a good idea where to look next. If compression is significantly under 60 psi, your looking at a tear down of engine. If your loosing spark, check flywheel gap to coil, diode stop assembly, etc. If compression and spark are good, try removing gas tank, cleaning it out well, new fuel lines, and check fuel shut off valve. These steps will help isolate problem. Also, a good old tune up never hurt either, try new spark plug and change the oil. Good luck and happy wrenching!

Subaru rgx3600 generator only producing 5volts


Sir take out the stator assembly from the engine and clean it properly from inside with cotten cloth moist with gasoline and then clean the roter while fixing it back mind the gap between the rotor and stator sometimes there is dirt or other material sucked inside the alternator which diaturbs the megnetic poles as a result the stator does not produce enough charge for exsitation

How to start the generator


Hi Joe, I had asked for a little clarification and have not received any information. I will answer this question based on the generator is in good working order and it is a recoil start. Open the petcock, (this is the fuel valve) and give it about a minute to fill the fuel bowl on the carburetor. If your generator has an engine an on/off kill switch, set to on. If the generator has an auto idle switch set it to off. If the engine has a throttle lever located under the carburetor, push it all the way down (full throttle). Pull the choke knob out completely, there is a detent on the choke for half choke, pull it past this for full choke. pull the recoil starter rapidly. As soon as the engine starts running push the choke knob to half choke, this will allow the engine to run smooth while it's warming up. Depending on the climate that you are in, warm up time will vary. After a minute or two in cold climates start pushing the choke knob in, if it starts to run poorly pull it back out too the half position and let it warm up some more. When you can posh the choke in without the engine faltering it is ready to go. In warmer climates you might be able to start the engine without the choke or in the halfway position. Robin Subaru makes some of the finest small engines available. I would choose a Robin over a Honda every time. I hope this gets your generator going, and once again this is based on the generator being in good working order. Good luck, Michael Burke.

Here your are. Subaru engines are made by Robin. I don't know if Robin owns Subaru or Subaru owns Robin. Any time you need a manual you can get it from the Robin America site.
