Customer Question
Hello, I have a...

Hello, I have a 2 cycle lawn blower that has always worked great. It is about 1 1/2 years old. Lately it feels as if it is over heating, and when I push the trigger it stalls. Any ideas?

About a month

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Not sure is there a troy but repair in 34232

If the engine is dying when trigger pulled, the carb needs to be cleaned and rebuilt or replaced. Some carbs are cheaper to buy new and bolt on

does the carburetor have adjustable jets for high speed and low speed? Or does it take specail tool to turn them? The high speed adjustment needs to be adjusted.
