Looking for a reason for the above problem? I think the centrifugal clutch is permanately engaged? I bought this mower along with another needing restoration but advertised as both runners, and they are, but this particular one has this problem with the blades.
as soon as i start the engine the blades spin and i cant stop them other than by turning off the engine? I looked at the tensioner first, but all seems good there, so had a look at the clutch, and there is no longitudinal movement on it, it appears to be engaged, all the time?
Any Advice would be good, thank you, bill.
