Someplace near the carburetor should be an idle mix screw and an idle speed screw. There may also be a high-speed mix screw. Try turning the idle speed screw in 1/4-turn at a time until it idles. If you turn it too far, the clutch will always be engaged so the blade will never stop.

Once you get it to idle, adjust the idle mix screw in or out 1/4-turn at a time until it idles at the highest speed. Turn the mix screw in JUST until the idle speed starts to drop a little, then back it out 1/4 turn.

Now adjust the idle speed screw again until it idles smoothly at a low enough speed that the blade stops.

Make sure you have the correct spark plug for your maching. and Make sure the gap is correct on the spark plug. Look in your owners manual for the correct gap. Check inside the spark plug wire end that connects to the spark plug and make sure the metal part is still in there to make the connection to the spark plug.

There is plenty of things you may have done wrong to cause this, is it the correct kit? i only ask because it is a compensated carb and many after market kits have a very important hole in the metering diaphram missing, it is also important to have the correct high on the metering lever, this should be level with the sides of the carb, bend the lever up or down to get the correct hight, also make sure the gasket goes onto the carb first before the metering diaphram as this acts as a spacer, if the seat in the carb is worn it cannot be replaced so that would mean a replacement carb.

This is the fuel filter weight, push the fuel line through the center flat side facing out, push the fuel filter onto the pipe, now pull the weight down on top of the filter this also crimps the pipe to stop the filter falling off

If the piston is working in the cylinder properly, that part of the piston shouldn't be making contact with the cylinder wall so lubrication shouldn't contribute to its demise unless it was bad enough to lead to enough heat buildup to cause the failure. It is most likely the metal was weak in a way or spot that the force of the piston going up and down was enough for the metal to finally fail. Of course the faster the motor is turning the higher those forces are so over reving the motor could certainly lead to this type of failure.

First thing would be to remove the muffler and make sure it isn't plugged with carbon. At that same time you can visually inspect the piston and cylinder. If there is any scoring on either then both will need to be replaced. There are other possibilities too like carb issues or bad crank seals but I always start with the exhaust. You could also take a compression reading if you have a tester. Make sure any compression release (if so equipped) is NOT pushed in. Have the throttle wide open but NO choke and pull 3 to 5 times or until the gauge quits rising. You should see at least 90 psi. If it is around 60 or less then most likely the piston and cylinder are scored or at least the rings are shot.

Remove the covers and the air filter, the screw heads are Torq 27, with the covers removed, insert a Torq 27 tool through the small hole in the black air filter housing ( close to the back of the cylinder ) and undo the screw that goes into the cylinder, now grab the air filter housing and pull firmly toward the back of the machine, it will come away as an assembly along with the carb, lift up far enough to un clip the throttle rod from the trigger, un hook the fuel hose from the carb, you will now have the assembly away from the machine.

Sounds like you have an open where the fuel line exits the tank. Remove the screws that hold the cover and remove it. Remove the air cleaner and wash it with soap and water and let it dry, You should be able to see the 2 nuts that will let you remove the carb. Release the throttle linkage,fuel lin,and return line,this should let you see the hoses easier. Make a wire hook and hook the the fuel line, OH drain the fuel from the tank befor doing any thing!!! Now as you pull the line from the tank, help it by pushing down as you pull it from the tank. Clean or replace the filter. Start the hose needing replaced from the top down into the tank,after about 6 in try to hook the line toput the filter on,push as much hose as needed to hook it. Next reinstall.the carb in the reverse. Good Luck.

open the 4 bolts. if old one is off, keep turning around the white inside bit against the spring until tight. you will see a hole on the white bit. Aline the hole on the white bit with the hole on the cover.shove your new pull cord in through the hole on the cover and the white thing then tie a knot on the inside of the white thing. then let the white thing go. It should spring around and wind up the cord. Hope this helps...
