I have a Honda 197 which was running fine until it was tipped onto its left side and had petrol coming out of I think the carbi (I was advised only ever right side). Since than I cannot get full power, no matter what the throttle position it just runs at about 1/2 power.

I am not a mechanical wizz so anything more than oil change or blade replacement is a repair shop thing.

Any ideas?

Remove air filter and see if it runs any better if it does replace the air filter

Has your throttle cable clamp come loose? Just a thought! :confused:

Take off the air filter cover and run machine.
These units usually run indirectly by springs and things.
Throttle up and down and watch what happens at the Carby end.
Now gently - flick - poke and prod the springy things.
A connection may be bent or fouled.
Try crc or a gentle straighten.
Do not poke the big whizzy bit underneath.
Do not put the sparky bizzo on your eyeball.
After 10 minutes of hard running do not lick the exhaust.

Hey Lawn Order, i did as suggested and it has made it better (not perfect), but maybe a bit more poking and prodding will help , will now be able to try Admins suggestions over the weekend. Thanks.

clean as best as you can around the governor thingy [metal bar at the back of the motor ]then spray with wd40 or similar you could also try some carby/injecter cleaner added to the petrol

Just be a bit careful with WD40 around any rubber thats all. INOX better :i dunno:
