Qualcast VTEC.
« on: 11 May 2019, 15:22:19 »

Following the advice of YZ250, and one or two youtube video, my mower now revs like a 2 stroke GP bike from the seventies.... :y
 


I needed  to remove the plastic covers and petrol tank to get to the governor arm located in the carb linkage. Then it was simply a case of bending it with a pair of pliers.

I wonder if it will go BANG in the near future. ::)

No good selling mowers that are so power and torque restricted that they won't cut grass.

Brilliant, glad you've sorted it.  :y

A faster spinning blade cuts the grass better as well.  :y

It is actually 150 cc and not 123 cc as I had thought.

The specification says 2.2 KW/2.95 BHP at  2900 RPM.

I reckon she is now running at about 3500 RPM..... :y

The grass now seems to be cut rather than torn apart.

I got banned from the local Go-Kart track when I found I could reach behind me and open the throttle properly on the engine, so I pissed past all the restricted Karts!  ::)  ;D

Is your mower self propelled M'lud?  ???

If so you should be careful at your age!  :P  :)

I did that at the kart track at Trago Mills in Bovey Tracey and got a bollicking. They fit isolator's now so that they can kill the engine remotely. Spoilsports.  ::) ;D
