Well I scored a gently used Briggs 900 series to repower my new 606! Doesn't have an air cleaner cover for it so I zip tied the filter on after I cleaned all the junk out of the carb and it ran good. Now it will rev slow and die after it idles a second. I'm guessing there's some more gunk in the carb that I either missed or broke free??
I have a wheel horse c161 Hydro, and I want to put on a stack type exhaust as the muffler that is currently on it appears to be to large and burns the paint on one side of the hood, what will I need to do this job, such as pipe size and stuff.
The picture is what I want my muffler and pipe to look like, it is not my tractor
So i finally got my Wheel Horse running after some work. I have rebuilt the carburetor and now I need to fine tune it. However, I have an issue. My engine idles lowest, but not all the way, at mid throttle. If i push the throttle down all the way my engine revs back up. While i go through the throttle i can witness the idle adjustment spring body go like this:
Throttle all the way open, Idle Spring and body all the way up.
Throttle midway, Idle spring and body close to all the way down.
Throttle closed, idle spring goes back up a bit to midway.
Any thoughts would be great.
I bought a C-161 last year which I knew would need body off restoration.
I did not get the priority job of remodeling the wifes kitchen done in time to tackle before we got to grass season.
It runs well now that I have replaced starter...and flywheel (don't ask why on the flywheel ) and I had hoped to use it to mow this summer and resto it over winter.
But It has a gas leak. I fixed one leak which I had hoped was the only leak by replacing the grommet.
This bigger leak is on bottom. There are two indentations. Might have been slightly threaded a long time ago to hold it in place.
Question is....Do any of you know what type of plastic are these made of?
Will the epoxy glues at auto parts box stores adhere to it?
Thanks in advance.
I have just joined!
My first foray into machinery. I have had trouble with the power - only running at full choke and even then with greatly reduced power - replaced the fuel line and filter - just rebuilt the carb - wondering if there is a UK supplier of Kohler parts as I am having to buy stuff from the USA. Really want to get hold of a new air filter plate... I hope to restore the whole thing to its former glory.
Any tips gladly received.
Will post pics of my beast when it stops raining!
