/ CubCadet Lt1050 Backfires when shut off. Just replaced head gaskets and now the engine runs a little fast at low speed idle and backfires at shut off. #1
There were two springs that were attached to the governor linkage one long and one short that came off during repair. I’m pretty sure I’ve got the long one in the right position but not sure about the short one. The throttle cable and choke cables have not been moved from there original positions but engine idle is too high where lever is in slow position. Is there a diagram of the springs and linkage positions?The head gasket change due to removing the intake manifold could cause a small change in the position of the carb linkages. may need to reset the governor static adjustment, or make adjustments to the throttle control system. Also Kohler engines need to be shut off at a speed that is at least half throttle due to the nature of their carb fuel flow. Anti fire solenoid doesn't shut off fuel flow to the idle circuit of the carb.
