Seems that the valve adjustment I did on my mower worked but now the
mower wont stay running...starts up fine but after a few minutes it
sputters and quits.
I noticed the governor going back and forth when it started to sputter,
what could it be?
Thanks again CJ
Agree, sounds like it's not getting enough fuel. If the above
doesn't work, probably time to pull the carb, take it apart,
and see if it's fouled up. That happens a lot on these. You
can find a carb rebuild kit that has gaskets, needle valves,
welch plugs, etc online, maybe Ebay, for $10
That's one approach, but carbs aren't cheap. A rebuild
kit is $10, a new carb could be $75+ Nor are
they really complicated, especially if you can find
the rebuilding steps and photo online in a service manual
or video. Essentially it's just taking it all apart, including
removine any welch plugs, cleaning it out thoroughly
using carb cleaner and some compressed air, then
putting it back together. The rebuild kit has all the parts
that need to be replaced, ie needle valves, gaskets, plugs.
