You did not specify which brand of 2-stroke lawn mower you have.  So, the ratios may differ. For a Briggs & Stratten 2-stroke  engine the ratio will be either 50:1 or 32:1 depending on the  engine model. It is always advisable to check with the  manufacturer's manual or on the internet.
You should never by pass any safety sensors on your lawn mower. BUT :for testing your brake sensor you can try taking the wires off the switch that is hooked ether at the back of the peddle or on the linkage and join them together .That should bypass it until you get a new switch.
The pull-starter system on a Poulan chain saw includes a  pull-starter pulley, rope and recoil spring that are prone to wear  and breakage. The pull starter is nothing more than a thin rope  that rubs against the eyelet with each pull. That action slowly  wears away the rope, eventually leading...

The model number you listed is for a Craftsman "Planer" not a "router" Although it says 315.17371 on the router itself, what you are actually looking for is the owner's manuel for model 315.17380You can download it here:http://www.owwm.com/pubs/222/613.pdf
An actuator is most commonly a component on equipment which moves another part. For example an actuator on a snow thrower would move the electrical chute.However, if you are looking for information on the engine itself, you will first need the model type and code.

The lines are called rungs.
  Buy a lawn mower engine repair manual at Border's or Barnes & Noble.
There are two things that could cause this.The first and most popular problem is that the safety switch for the seat is not working correctly. It determines whether someone is on the seat. If for some reason the driver should fall off of the mower while mowing it will shut the mower off. It is a...
A tool for cutting weeds and grasses using a back and forth swinging motion. The blade was mounted in an A-frame hardwood frame or later in a metal frame, both of which were off-set to the side to allow the swinging motion.
To sharpen a reel mower, put grinding compound on the blades. This  makes the blades into their own sharpening stones. Push the mower  around until it is easy (this is called lapping). Wash off the  grinding compound. Make the blades so they go the right way again.
No the lawn mower was invented in scottland
Answer . \nOk, the AC takes several horsepower in order to operate. Rather obviously you can't extract energy from nothing, ie.. the AC does not run for free!\n. \nTurning on the AC causes the drive solienoid to engage the AC clutch which, in turn, puts an added load on to the drive belt. \n. ...
If you mean the deck belt of a 50" deck, then try the related link at one of my sites under MTD decks.
There is no direct conversion from cc to hp. It depends on the design of the engine. A turbocharged engine will create more hp than a normally aspirated engine of the same cc displacement. Type of engine also matters, diesel, 4 cycle, 2 cycle, wankel rotary. I had an old VW Beetle with 1200 cc...
The deck must be slipped beneath the machine from the left, the lift lever locked down and the rear hangers and front hanger plate attached. The belt will take take a 90 degree twist with the front part to the left side.
I do not but I will attach the link to their site, Manage My Home.
  go to www.gilmour.com at the very bottom of page, click on customer service scroll down about halfway, to "downloadable owner's guides" sounds like you might have the 9400 (like mine) good luck!
"Cylinoid" is correctly spelled as "solenoid." A solenoid is a  helix coil that is tightly wrapped. These are generally found in  cars.
Displacement does not translate directly to a horsepower because of other factors, mainly engine design. One could predict a range that would be from 13 to 17 HP
If a wheel has been remove like to fix a flet, then a key. If not then the drive disc could be worn out or the belt is slipping.* If that doesn't work check to see if the bolt connecting the drive belt to the axle snapped off.
There are a few ways to clean a small engine carb. One is the  simple way of applying the coke to the carb and spray a small  amount of carb cleaner to the carb. Number two is to take the carb  off and take it apart and buy a rebuild kit and rebuild the carb.
It is possible the spark plugs are fowling quickly due to improper fuel mixture or possibly worn piston rings allowing oil to enter the combustion area of the cylinder. This will not necessarily happen in all cylinders, so it is necessary to remove the spark plugs one at a time (so you will know...
Since HP and displacement are not directly related, I can only say that it is probably in the neighborhood of 200cc.
Crank the knob that is the depth stop all the way out, lock the deck in the lowered position, remove the belt noting the twist, pull the two spring-loaded "U" pins at the front to release the front, pull the hairpin cotter pins on the rear hangers and release them. Raise the hangers and slide deck...
Deere makes its riders, Snapper makes the current walk behinds. Great Dane makes a portion of the QuikTrak stand-on commercial mowers, but Deere makes the rest of those and the rest of the commercial mowers.
== Answer ==   == ==   Depends on your area.   $20+ for lawns 5,000 sq feet.   $30-35 for lawns 5,000 - 10,000 square feet   This includes edging, weedeating, and grass blowing   Same price whether adults or not-- you're paying for the work, not by the age of the worker.    ...
The qualified answer is yes. Understand that the connecting rod will break at the wrist pin at 5500-6000 RPMs. An OHV engine will probably damage the valve train prior to that happening. You do not state your reasoning for wanting to know.
I will attach a link to an IPL that will show little. Let me say that tracing the lines is necessary. The one attached to the fuel filter enters the left side of the carb, the one exiting the right side attaches to the inlet of the purge and the other side of the puge dumps fuel back into the tank....
Most likelly a carburetor problem. If your unfamiliar with there carbs the make a book on their carbs that has a trouble shooting guide in it. There available all over the web! This can also be a problem with something as simply as dirty fuel. With the carb a good cause could be that there is not...

Most cotter pins are bent at one end and a loop at the other. You have to straighten the bent ends and grab the other end with a pare of vice grips and pull . If it will not come out you may have to brake off the end of cotter pin and punch it out with a fine punch (some times you can use a small...

It should have a remote primer attached to the blower housing. in most cases it is held in place by three head bolts at the top and two bolts on the bottom of the sides. Remove it taking care since the hose from it to the carb is there also. The hose is worked loose and then there is probably a nut...
Store it in a dry location. Clean off snow and ice accumulations. Oil the moving parts frequently. Standard small engine maintenance as well.

On my '98 GSX it's .032.   AnswerThe manufacture of the plug you buy for you car (your Mitsubishi) should come 'Pre Gaped' ie; no need to gap them. I have or my car has a Mitsubishi engine in it and I use NGK plugs for it. You'll find NGK's in most Motorcycle engines and other high rev engines...
Ancient Romans - and Scythians - used a scythe for mowing lawns at times. I found no year of origin, though. Edwin Budding in 1830 patented the reel type lawn mower, which is purely mechanical. The only thing I could find on the gas powered types more familiar nowadays was that according to...
just follow the spark pulg wire you cant miss it.
The 176cc engines are about 5 hp;160cc =3-4 hp176 (foreign) 4-5 hp205cc= 5-7 hp250cc= 8 hp350cc=11-13 hp
You are going to use it in a lawnmoer to race they are i think about 15 hp but if u want a fast lawnmower use a snowmobile engine
Check the needle in the carburator. Could be some problem with the float. Take it apart and and clean everything. A new needle and valve seat kit could be the next step.....
on the carb there is a plate that moves when you throttle up and returns to a stop screw when throttled down. This stop screw is the idle adjustment, turn it in until you reach your desired idle rpm.

A two stage 8 horse should do the job well, I would not get anything smaller.
The snow blower blades may need to be sharpened or they may be bent out of shape in which you can get them back to a reasonable shape with a light mallet.You might want to check belt ,shear pins and gearbox in the center of the augers it may be slipping.
you can, I have done a few myself years ago, but these days the price of parts is nothing short of piracy and the price of new mowers by ratio and wages has tumbled. I would not bother getting my hands dirty with it. Do not get it done in a repair shop unless you like to cry on your bills
I just had this happen to me. I tried using a razor blade - it was working but spring would have arrived before I had all the paper out. I tried burning the paper out with a propane torch - the paper was too wet to burn. What finally worked was a sawzall with a flexible blade. That allowed me to...
I just had the same problem. In my case. the bolt connecting the chain drive to the axle broke. Its an EASY fix! 1. Remove the pin on the crank handle that turns the chute. 2. Tip the snow blower backwards. 3. Loosen the two bolts at the rear of the bottom black pan, and remove the two in the...
Not unless you don't like the head. The kohler 341s and 341h are the only inter changable cranks. The piston out of a 289 chevy will fit.
Easy. There are bolts that go into each end of the axles. The 2 outside ones need to be taken completely out. Also, the 2 smaller ones that fasten into the bottom of the side plate need to be removed. Take off the plate. This will allow enough slack to pull the rear track drive wheel off the axle....
Have a Sears snowblower that's about three years old used it hard in the snow storms we have had in 2010 and it work fine only thing is the gas tank is to small, needs to be refuled often.

  You need to clarify your question. It makes no sense as is.
The front grill pulls out forward and it is behind it.
i use 32:1 that's what the online Manuel
none 2 cycle engines run a gas/oil mix for lubrication
The oil it calls for is Poulan which is 40:1. A good quality name brand (Stihl, Echo, etc.) will work fine when used as directed.
There is a grounding strap beneath the starter that serves as the circuit between the vibration-mounted handle and the engine. If you take the handel apart, you will be sorry. Look for the broken wire at the coil in lower front corner first.
If you mean the belts, you must first remove the front by getting the variator farthest forward and releasing the guide covers (usually a rotating little clip at the shaft and a release that lets the whole bracket pivot. Then the variator must be allowed to move rearward (the speed control lever)...

It was made from 1996-98 and would fit the MTD 600 series, some Cub Cadet and Whites. All are MTD brands. It could be put on the 1995. It was replaced by the 190-627 in 1999. Manuals are available from MTD at link below by typing in the number you gave as the model and just a 1 for the serial number
  == Answer ==   Exactly where on the engine is the oil coming from? This would need to be identified before any suggestions could really be made as to why that would happen. Oil pan bolt not tight? A hose or something with a leak? Hole in engine block or plug in engine came out? This needs...
Bet you did not think someone would tell you where! I have worked on them years ago. See link below for specs.

Write down the serial number which should be printed on a serial number tag somewhere on the mower. Take the number to your local John Deere dealer and they should be able to tell you what year your mower was produced.
Troy-Bilt was built by Garden Way and got its name because the factory was in Troy, NY. Now it is wholly owned by MTD. It shares many of the construction and mechanical features of that brand, but is cosmetically different.Troy-Bilt is now a wholly owned subsidiary of MTD.

  Basic adjustment for small engines carburetors: Close (rotate clockwise) needle valve but do not overtighten since the coated tip may get damaged. Open (rotate counter clockwise) needle valve 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 turns. This should be ok to start the engine. Start the engine and allow to warm up for...
  I would guess that it is actually a Poulan. They are marketed under their name and I believe most or all Sears Craftsman riding mowers are actually manufactured by them.
