I fired up my strikemaster for the first time this year. Started right up on the third pull. Seemed to be idling rather fast. Hit the throttle, and nothing. Seems the throttle is not working. Auger is a lazer mag xpress and is about 6 years old. It ran fine when I ran stabil through it to put it away for the summer.
I know absolutely nothing about small engines so I don’t really know what to check. The wire off the throttle is still connected to the piece that slides back and forth on the motor, and the slide deal still slides back and forth when you hit the throttle. There is a little gold colored lever on the very bottom that I can move back and forth and get the engine to rev up, but it just stays running balls out if I move it.
Anybody got any ideas of what I can try checking that isn’t too difficult?
