Did this video help you?

AlwaysHopeful87: Thanks.

striker1211: Thanks so much for this video. I had a Tecumseh 3hp auger running slow, unless you leaned your chest onto it for some reason. I couldn't figure it out, how the air coming in the top could do anything to the fuel mixture.... This explains it.

Carol White: I am a female who is trying to fix her own mower. I own a Bolen's 3.5 push mower by Stratton Briggs. I did everything right as far as the carburetor goes, but I got off track when I had to put the parts back where they originally came from. Now I can't figure out which hole on my carburetor throttle lever that my linkage goes back into. As a result, my carburetor throttle lever won't move at all. Great video and thank you!

TheSiamese Rat: myn is a 3.0 exactly like that one so when I point it torward me and the spring tightens up is it full throttle I forgot

Robert Sykes: Thanks for posting this

osovideos1: One more thank you. I fixed my slow running lawnmower in about 15 minutes after watching your video.

Doug Zeringue: Thanks so much for this video.  I fixed my lawn mower in about 5 minutes and it's running great!  Peace from New Orleans.

Doug Zeringue: Thanks so much for this video.  I fixed my lawn mower in a few minutes and it's running great!  Peace and Good Karma from New Orleans.

Maxitikos: Thank you, I also have issues tightening the carburetor. Two of the screws will not tighten fully when I try to install the carburetor to the fuel tank. The screws do tighten without the carburetor, however. Does this mean the carburetor is warped so much so that it can't be installed tightly?

Maxitikos: Hello, when I screw my governor blade onto the coil the governor is too tight and will not move. How can I solve this problem without loosening the bolt too much?

Thank You.

djancak: Thanks for this video! I'm working on my neighbor's lawn mower and got the thing running again but the RPMs are way too high! This video has helped me to understand that the issue is likely to do with the air-vane governor set-up.

Gatewayuser200: I have a question for you.

Out of the two auto choke carburetors available for 3.5 hp engines which do you prefer, the vacu jet for simplicity, or the pulsa jet or consistent operation?

jted68: Thanks to another video you published, I adjusted my old 42" Snapper rider mower (11 hp) carb and linkage after installing a carb kit. It now runs beautifully!
I am about to do the same on my older Snapper push mower....
Great, down-to-earth instructional videos! 

MrBonami2: Cleaned the air governor and the blade for cooling and the dam thing cant run at more than 3/4 throttle without accelerating and slowing down well i dont know why.

Any idea what to do to allow 100% speed 

ir4dex1: Great Video Tutorial and at 47 years of age I finally understand so thanks very much.

Jim Mehta: I have 20219 TORO 1991 Self propelled Lawn Mower. It has Choke after Fast on the throttle handle. When I push all the way down the throttle handle choke closes and the spring on the governor arm stretches and opens the throttle open. But when I bring throttle handle to fast it runs at lowest RPM. Then if I move the throttle more towards slow nothing happens and it continues to run at the same RPM. Then I move the throttle handle to Shut off it shuts off. Why it is not running at max RPM when I put it in Fast?

Norm Rosteck: Thankyou so much ,great help
