I had to change out the carb on a club cadet wheel trimmer this spring. It starts and runs ok but does not run at high

Expert's Assistant chatimg
Customer: I had to change out the carb on a club cadet wheel trimmer this spring. It starts and runs ok but does not run at high rpm most of the time. Is there an adjustment for that?
JA: Do you know the model of your Cadet trimmer? How old is it?
Customer: best I can find is: 22 in. 159cc Gas Walk Behind String Trimmer Mower I bought it last summer.
JA: How long has this been going on with your Cadet trimmer? What have you tried so far?
Customer: It started not long after I got the carb back on.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Well, like I said, after changing the carb it started up right away and ran fine.

Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! I don't know it all, but maybe together we can get you a satisfactory answer!

Have drained the carburetor bowl to ensure that there is no water in the bowl? There is no screw adjustment on the carburetor that will help. The high speed is determined by the spring tension on the governor lever at the carburetor. Run engine manually, and see if pulling on the springs will increase the speed. If it does you can then increase the spring tension by bending the bracket it mounts to.

I see the question is still open?
