310-8 Idle Problem

Recommended Posts

Been having an issue with one of my 310-8's.  Had the Carb Rebuilt, the tractor never ran when I bought it. So this is how it acts now. I can't figure out the idle issue. Any Help would be much appreciated.

Top speed sounds way too high  don't run it like that.  is the governor hooked up properly?   if it is you need to adjust the high speed stop.  Check the governor part of the manual

Paul's absolutely right about that top speed, it's way too high, you'll damage your engine very quickly if you keep running it like that.

 

Can you get some photos of your throttle cable hookup?

EDIT:  You might find something useful here.  Be aware this is a very old thread that was damaged a bit in a software change that happened on this forum several years ago, but most of the important information is still there:

My old Ford LGT165 with a 16 HP Kohler K series ran that way when I bought it.

Governor was completely trashed.

 

I had to take the engine apart to replace it.

 

Worked fine after that.
