Belt slippage is something I have considered. I have replaced the idler tension spring (and belt and idler pulley and idler arm) and feel comfortable that it is amply tensioning the belt. I don't...

Cheese, glad to hear from you! You and I think a lot alike. I didn't mention that in my post but I did, indeed, check all the baffling and all is proper. I modified blades from a New Holland tractor...

If you are absolutely certain the spark was white then you have a weak ignition, which would also explain the backfire. If you don't have a bare wire (plug lead or kill wire) and you know you don't...

What make engine is on your machine? What are the ID numbers of both the machine (chassis) and engine? "Some wear" on either the starter Bendix gear or the flywheel ring gear will be enough to cause...

What color was the spark at the spark plug...orange, blue or white? Some machines will have a fuel pump even if the gas tank is above the carburetor so don't necessarily rule out a fuel pump problem....

Behind the primer bulb at about the 10-o'clock position, if I'm not mistaken. You'll need to remove what looks like an inlet needle seat and behind it you will have a ball (tiny) and spring. And,...

This will be an overhead valve engine and the head removal should not be necessary. But! I'll bet you have a valve out of clearance...remove the rocker cover and measure each valve's clearance. Set...

Have any of you run the 621 in snow conditions, under load? I'm curious how the engine will fare in such conditions! We've yet to see any of these models come into our shop and would like to know how...

I've never heard of Generac V-engines but I believe they produce industrial generators with inline sixes and they don't claim to manufacture the engine but they do "approve" the engine. I'm pretty...

I agree with Cheese completely! I know of three companies that say, on paper, that it is "normal" for an engine to hunt (surge) without a load - LCT, MTD and Toro. Well, this is not normal and is,...
