Re: GT186 revs Question

dont alter the timing before you check the jetting because if it is weak advancing the ignition will only make it pink or detonate.

Re: GT186 revs Question

if it was mine I would do one thing at a time richen the needle jet 266 or 268 first then try advancing the ignition; I would set the ignition at 2000rpm around 23-24 degrees

I'd guess the ignition is too retarded as well

Re: GT186 revs Question

264 needle jet?
is it weak that may stop it pulling under load; if you drop the throttle a little does it run slightly better

Re: Semi hydraulic set up

the pin that the lever pivots on can corrode and stick which stops it from working smoothly makes it stick; take the two little circlips off remove the pin clean it up use copper slip on the pin and pivot and it might work
