Classic 35 2 problems

Hi Guys,

great to be on with you all. I have a classic 35 my carburettor after a few minutes will race out of control, throttle makes no difference. Also mower now gouging at turf. I set it to 3 far to high, set it to 2 the roller spins and gouging. Any feedback be great lads

1) If this is the Tecumseh

1) If this is the Tecumseh engine -  carburettor sticks out to the left of the engine as you stand at the handlebars- the governor mechanism inside the crankcase may have fallen apart.  Symptom is when off choke the smallest amount of throttle makes the engine rev like mad.  This is not great news I'm afraid Can also be carb to manifold or manifold to engine gasket failed/ bolts loose. Check bolts but do not over tighten. Oddly these are imperial size not metric

2) If it didnt gouge the turf before the plastic height adjuster (  numbererd  S to 5? )  may have broken.  Stand mower on paving slab , set to 5 and look at distance between the bottom blade and the slab. Then turn to 3 and note distance- then 2 and see how much nearer it is to the slab. If the blade is suddenly right down you need to look at the adjuster- should be availble still, but sort engine first

Hope this helps
