    I have a 2002 lawnboy 6.5 hp model 10424. It smokes not real bad but I would still like to get it back to normal. I tried cleaning the carb out but now i have smoke and it wants to idle at jet speeds. I not sure if I put the assembly back correctly. I sure would like some help if anyone would be willing.

    Thanks for the help. I'll try the oil\gas ratio. I still have abit of an issue with the way the governor is set. I have it a low idle when the throttle is up in 'fast', it runs pretty good and it's quit. I'll probably keep playing with it untill i get it right where i want it, whatever that is. Again, I thank you for your help.
