Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you in this matter. If you have no issue turning blades with belt off, I would then go to the clutch. the Clutch may be shorting out and staying partially disengaged when switch used. I would also consider checking push rods and the valve clearance, but most likely the issue is going to be with the Clutch of the machine. Let me know if you need more info and I will be glad to help anyway I can.
No. When the clutch is in the OFF position , that pulley should not turn. It will turn at times, but is very difficult to turn manually as the clutch is hlp still by magnets. If it turns easily or freely, the clutch has gone out
Just checking in and seeing if you need anything else as I see I didn't get rated and wasn't sure if you needed more info. Rating are important and I strive to do my best. please let me know if I can assist furher
