/ Robins 25 HP Surging #1
Took out the 425 to acreage today to spread out two trucks of gravel on my mud road. Before I left, I greased it up, cleaned the air filter and topped off fluids. I used it yesterday and it ran great....today, it was constantly surging unless I was using the treadle in forward or reverse???? When I blew out the air cleaner, I didn't wash it or oil it up and since it was pretty dirty, I noticed some dirt drop into the carberator so I got the vacuum out and vacuumed it out hopefully. At the acreage, I double checked the engine oil and noticed that it was overfilled so I hit up the neighbor for some tools to drain some out. I PUT a small amount in before I left and obviously read the dip stick wrong. I drove back into town for dinner and googled mower engine surging and saw there were a bunch of things that can cause this and am racking my brain to figure out what I did to screw it up. I oiled up the air cleaner element when I went back out, I checked the gas cap (looked OK.... is there any way it can go bad). Anyhow, short of taking the carberator apart (which I have never done), I'm not sure what to do next. Any suggestions?
