There should be a decal on the flywheel cover with a model and spec number on it.


Since you say it's a Tecumseh. You may want to check the bowl nut and make sure all ports are open, It is also the main jet


I borrowed this pic from one of geogrubb's post, I hope he doesn't mind....

Well Robert,

I need you to see if you can find those numbers, I need to see what engine you have instead of just guessing.

It almost sounds like you will need to fully dissassemble the carb, soak in a bath type cleaner overnight, rinse with a spray type cleaner & blow out ALL the holes with compressed air. Install a carb kit with a new float & adjust the level.(IF this is typical 4 stroke Techeumseh,) Give us engine numbers & we can be more help!!! Good Luck, Roger

If this unit has a throttle cable make sure it didn't slide in the hold-down clamp thus not giving you full throttle.
