Q:

carb rpm adjustment 917378652 Craftsman Gas, walk behind lawnmower

A:

Thank you for your question.

 

I am sorry you are having a problem with the mower. If the speed seems to be slower that it was the spring used to control the speed may have been stretched slightly during the repair. You should be able to fix this by bending the tab that the spring connects too. I posted an image below that shows how to adjust the speed. I know that you will adjust this by ear but I have to recommend that you a tachometer to make the adjustment. This will ensure the engine is not running too fast. If you do not have a tachometer, you can purchase what is called a tiny tach from Sears or a hardware store may have it.

 

 

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

 

Thank you for using Manage my life.
