Shindiawa 242 adjustment.


LawnSite Fanatic
I think I may have a lemon trimmer.

Bought it this season and has been into the shop for adjustment once already. I recently changed the plug and air filter.

It idles fine but bogs down at full throttle. I have to run it at 3/4 choke to get enough cutting rpms.

I can't seem to find a way to adjust the high end on the motor. Any idea my problem?

Is the spark arrestor plugged up? Try taking the spark arrestor out of the muffler and running it to see if it's running fine.

One more thing to look at, the fuel filter. See if it's plugged or something.
