One of the reasons I'm confused is Turbonics kickspace heaters get the most mentions for being very quiet. They cost more than most others.

I was hoping for relative differences.

To bring this to a close--
I removed the carb for a 3rd time to clean and/or ream the main jet. The torch cleaning wires did nothing special because as it turns out they aren't textured at the...

At this point (after cleanings) the surging is subtle at rest and sometimes it settles down and runs steady after a minute. It's hard to be sure but I believe it stops surging now once cutting grass...

As I said it was raining yesterday. Most of my grass is straw right now but I'll find some thick grass somewhere to test for you.
I CAN say that it used to surge in thick or thin, and would get...

The governor prevents the kind of overspeed situation you describe.
The only way the motor "knows" there's a load on it is it slows down. The air over the governor paddle decreases & it opens the...

I've done most of these suggestions twice already but doing it a 3rd isn't going to hurt.

Thanks Cheese.
I'm not too sure what you're suggesting.

It's nothing like that.
Hollow behind the top/front. Valves are attached to a sub-panel. Only their shafts protrude thru holes in the front.

Thank you!

I've written Repco for a quote.

I replaced a core sometime in the past. Fairly easy job on that one but an Aurora is a different animal. The heat & AC lines go thru the firewall near the center so I don't imagine it's...

Plugged-up heater core

My car is putting out very little heat the past couple weeks.

Hey guess what? It doesn't matter. I was looking at the wrong manual (SMH). The VSX-321 doesn't have a video generator for the menus--just use the cramped front display and a whole lot of scrolling.
