    I am trying to get the carb off my mower to clean it out. Mower is running rich and one spark plug keeps getting black. I cannot get carb off or the linkage, is there any tricks carb is loose but cant get it to pivot of mounting bolts to angle it to remove throttle and choke linkage.

    any one cleaned one of these before?

    After you undo the 2 nuts that hold on the carb, put both throttle and choke levers wide open that should give you enough play to pull it off the 2 mounting bots and then you can twist the carb sideways to work the linkage off,....make sure you note which link comes off where so you replace it the right way
