If the engine is four-cycle, the valve seals may be worn, causing a small amount of oil to seep into the piston cylinder or combustion chamber. If it is two-cycle, the oil/fuel mix may have a little too much oil.

You did not specify which brand of 2-stroke lawn mower you have.So, the ratios may differ. For a Briggs & Stratten 2-strokeengine the ratio will be either 50:1 or 32:1 depending on theengine model. It is always advisable to check with themanufacturer'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 apull-starter pulley, rope and recoil spring that are prone to wearand breakage. The pull starter is nothing more than a thin ropethat rubs against the eyelet with each pull. That action slowlywears away the rope, eventually leading to a frayed...

You don't indicate an age. Has it been stored inside or out in the weather?. My first guess is that the flywheel has some rust on the magnetized areas. The magnets spinning magneto creates the electricity to cause a spark when the points open.. Take off the recoil starter. The are two magnetized...

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 315.17380 You can download it here:
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. Please see the following FAQ for...
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...
Get the model number off of the unit and then go to: Click on the Manual tab and then enter your model number. You can get manuals for most Sears products there.
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. Thismakes the blades into their own sharpening stones. Push the moweraround until it is easy (this is called lapping). Wash off thegrinding compound. Make the blades so they go the right way again.

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. ...
The intake valve is not closed deep enough into the valve seat due to being too long and crankcase pressure is allowing some oil from the engine to be sucked up the valve guide into the combustion area and the 4 cycle process allows some of the oil to be pushed into the intake cycle and thus gets...
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.

Pin dropped from a height of 1 centimetre heard at a distance of 1 meter would be ~15dB
"Cylinoid" is correctly spelled as "solenoid." A solenoid is ahelix coil that is tightly wrapped. These are generally found incars.
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
Best guess is about 200cc. Little bit more or less depending on engine design. Displacement does not directly translate into HP. Bad best geuss...5.0 =158cc and 190cc is a 6.75hp
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 thesimple way of applying the coke to the carb and spray a smallamount of carb cleaner to the carb. Number two is to take the carboff 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.
With Stihl most Super models have a piston diameter that is 2 mm larger than the other version of the same model. The Super is still an AV otherwise as that stands for anti-vibration, which means that it usually has four shock mount buffers between the engine and handle
== Answer ==== ==Depends on your area. $20+ for lawns 5,000 sq feet.$30-35 for lawns 5,000 - 10,000 square feetThis includes edging, weedeating, and grass blowingSame price whether adults or not-- you're paying for the work, not by the age of the worker. In our neighborhood, the rate is $50 cut,...
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....
Either a nut on the axle or with a C clip against the outside hub of the wheel.
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...
The armature needs to be slightly loose with the magnets away from it, insert a business card or index card between flywheel and legs of the armature, slowly rotate the flywheel until magnets pull the legs close, tighten armature rotate flywheel until magnets are away, remove card and you are done.
Most typically lawn mower batteries are 12 volt but there are the occasional 6v versions out there. you can . Look at the battery - somewhere on it, it should reference the voltage . Refer to your manual to identify the type of battery if you don't have the battery in your possession . Use a look up...
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...
Check the clutch it is a centrifugal clutch : Might have warn plates or be stuck. or it could be-the chain drive sprocket is warn out.

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...
There is a serial number break on that machine at #140001. Below that both belts are: M82612 36.22" X 1/2" And after that: M122421 37" X 1/2" for the auger and M118011 33" X 3/8" for the drive
it is mostly made of steel
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. Answer The 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. IMO...
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.
it varies... Chevy was the first to make one cc equal one horse power.
The 176cc engines are about 5 hp; 160cc =3-4 hp 176 (foreign) 4-5 hp 205cc= 5-7 hp 250cc= 8 hp 350cc=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.
40 ounces of gas to 1 ounce of oil
A two stage 8 horse should do the job well, I would not get anything smaller.

When installing the diaphragm on your S200 carb, 1st remove the 4 srews on the bottom of the carb.Remove cover and take notice to the order of the gasket and diaphragm.Usually diaphragm 1st then followed by gasket.Clean gasket areas and revorce removall
This question is a bit weird, as 4-stroke engines don't need oil in the fuel. Many 2-stroke engines however do need oil in their fuel, and it should preferably be a special 2-stroke oil. That oil dissolves better and burns cleaner. If you don't have 2-stroke oil the stock recommendation is to use...
To remove the metal cover over the drive belt, you need two 10mm ratchets because, while two of the bolts screw into the snowblower case, the other two bolts screw into nuts that you need to grab to keep them from turning. Both of the nuts are accessible through the mouth of the snowblower. FIRST...
No it is 4 cycle oil, 2 cycles is the only oil you mix with gas for 2 cycle engines. They may be referring to a syn/ conventional oil mix that they have preformed to improve their oil. It will work fine in your 4 cycle engine as long as it is the correct weight for your engine. As long as it is like...
Yes but a reel mower antique or not needs to be : kept Sharp and if you have ruff land to cut it makes a reel mower tough to work with .
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...
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...
pull or press the bearing out and take to a local bearing/machine shop to measure
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. We had 40 inches of snow in two storms. it is a 5.5 Hp. and 24 inch wide model. Cal120 In Canada, the...
A snow blower should blow snow about 50 feet n average.
Here is something you can try. Go to the hardware store and get a conduit mounting clamp that fits your shaft size, then get an eye bolt, You will need two nuts for the eye bolt. mount the clamp on the shaft, put one nut on the eye bolt and insert it in to the other hole, putting the secong nut on...
If it's an 066 go 1 turn out from seat for high and low. No 064 to my knowledge.
