I have a Toro 2 cycle with the Suzuke engine. Great engine. BUT!! When
it is gear with the blade engaged and going forward, the engine goes up
and down, up and down, up and down. VARoooom. VARoooom. VARoooom.
If the blade isn't engaged it will self propel fine. Idle fine. Run at
high speed fine.
But engage the blade, up and down, up and down, up and down.
Any small engine repair readers that might have a fix??
This is called "hunting". Or at least when a Tecumesh does it, that's what
Look for small coil spring about two inches long that hooks to the throttle.
Find a Honda dealer, go buy another one, replace that spring.
If you don't have a second adjustment screw visible it may be covered
with a plug to prevent you from destroying the planet. If you can get a
parts diagram of your carb you should be able to see where it is.
Your other options are get a carb rebuild kit, or take existing carb and
shove it up a tree huggers ass.
