Have you tried adjusting the main jet needle? It's the one that points straight down out of the bottom of the float bowl nut.

Jep i did, when i turn that open (now it is about 1 and 1/2 turn open) from 2 it starts shooting flames true the exhaust when rev up and back to idle. ;-)

spark plug have the right color so i think mixture is good.

when i hold the arm i can feel it pushing.when u put a small screwdriver inbitween, it runs normal... I'm starthing to think the governor have a problem.

no wthe engine have not enough revs/power to mow.

riding is just possible but it's like riding a camel. (lol)

Governor spring needs replaced is a common cause of that.

      Hello all I am in the market for a carburetor for my clinton 1200. Does anyone out there have one?

      I'm thinking about buying a Leak down tester. Looking online they range from $29 to $200+.  Harbor freight sells a Pittsburg brand one for $39. And several other companies sell that same looking one (Different names) for $29 to$49:  There is an OTC brand one for $&9 and $199.
       
      So what do y'all use?  
      Does anyone have the Harbor Freight one?  I'm a little skeptical l, but like the price for the little bit I will use it.   Of course if it's not accurate it a worthless .

      Good morning,
      This is my first post.  Several years ago I bought a c120 auto and have used it to mow and snowplow with great success.  The other night in the midst of a snow storm I was in a hurry to get going, and didn't check the oil and didn't give the engine enough time to warm up.  Result seems to be a broken connecting rod, since it cranks now much faster than it did before and won't start when it was a terrific starter before.
      So I'm looking for ways to repair the damage I've done.  I really love the tractor, comparing it to modern ones that feel like tin foil convinces me that I want to fix this iron horse.
      I am in southwest Michigan, and looking for help.
      thanks in advance.

      I have a 79 C-111 that I pulled a running 11hp briggs and stratton engine from and also a front push blade.  I am looking to sale both.  Push blade 200 Engine 100
      I also have the original mowing deck for this mower.  I am looking for a WH pull behind tiller attachment, maybe trade?

      I am looking for an engine that will easily swap into my C100 that is not the K241AS. Any suggestions?
