Hello, my new to me C-160 seems to surge a little when idling at half and full throttle. It also bogs if I go from low idle to full throttle quickly. I moved the governor back and forth with my hand then started it and right after it would go from low to high normally, then later it had trouble again. The surging also seemed to be less when I messed with the governor and the spring but doesn't go away. I plan to clean and maybe rebuild the carburetor and adjust everything. I've never done this on a tractor before. What rebuild kit do I need for the carburetor and is there anything else I should consider doing or get. I have a K series pdf manual that explains the maintenance so I'd like to go through and do everything. I just don't want to mess anything up because it seems to be in decent running condition aside from maybe cleaning up and making adjustments. I've changed the oil and transmission fluid and am moving on to the fuel system. Any help and suggestions are much appreciated.
Greetings all. Looking for some feedback. A couple of weeks ago a neighbor gave me a snow blower that was not running. Nice unit...179cc, electric start...cosmetically almost perfect. No major mechanical issues, it got left with gas in it and it gummed up. He's not very mechanical and although I offered to help him out with it he just wanted it gone and was going to post it for free on CL, so I said sure, I'll take it. Anyway, I cleaned it up, ordered a replacement carb/primer/gaskets (cheaper than the rebuild kit), drained and filled it with fresh premium gas, cleaned and gapped the plug and she fired up on the first pull. Only issue is it's really surging. There is a link to a short (>1 Minute) YouTube video below. I have some thoughts, but I would appreciate any ideas or experience anyone has with symptoms like this. Thanks in advance! https://youtu.be/PU0f3JiaJr8 (I sure wish I knew why sometimes when I link to a YouTube video I get a preview image, and other times only the link? I've tried using the Video URL, Embed Code and every combination I can think of but no joy? Weird.)
