How is everyone. Fine I hope. I am 75 years young & doing & feeling great.
I work on small engines for a little money, to help people out & keeps me active.
I am working on a Troy-Belt 4hp mower(#8654R B310112197)that was given
to me. The mower is cutting too low. The back deck instructions are to turn
big handle on back deck clock-wise to lower the 4 wheels so it will cut higher.
The big handle will not turn. I sprayed the shaft with JB rust cleaner & let it set
for 2 hours. No luck getting it to turn.
Does anyone have any suggestion as to correct this problem?


THANKS, willie

It is now free & turning after soaking overnight in can of carburetor & parts
cleaner. I then heated it & lightly tapped on the end while in a vise.
Thanks for the input Rentahusban.

Next problem. The manual choke hook-up on bracket of motor from top of handle is out of
adjustment. I can not seem to get it right on this mower(b&s #122782/walbro LMS carb.).


THANKS,willie


PS: The mower otherwise runs fine.

I am assuming that when the throttle is all the way foward, it engages the choke. I am also assuming that there is a clamp that holds the cable to to the engine. If there is a clamp, try loosening it and push the cable foward a bit. This should be the adjustment needed to engage the choke.

ZATTS!!! I finally figured it out. The choke butterfly(top of shaft) has a 90 degree fork
engagement. The 2nd 90*fork (that moves as throttle moves) was interlocking on wrong sides of both forks It works fine with throttle adjustment to other side of both forks.
Thanks Rentahusband for the help.
