How do i fix my ariens lawn mower

Does sound like the the throttle control govener linkage is either in need of adjusting, The throttle control govener linkage is the part that connects the throttle to the internal engine part a mechanizum that will activate the throttle when the engine is put under a load, to keep the engine from stalling and to increase the RPM Rotations per minute of the engine when their is a load on the engine, by advancing the throttle control in the intake manifold . Or the linkage is binding and not activating properly ! Check to see if the throttle plate does move freely and is not stuck.and that the wire type linkage is connected to the throttle plate !

17hp kawasaki v-twin loses power when under load

You may have a bad ignition coil. Your carb also may need to be taken apart and cleaned real good. You can find alot of good troubleshooting tips on google or youtube as well.

I hear a ticking in my engine while moving. I checked the oil and it is good. You don't hear it when the bike is idling.

if its only a slight tick under load, probably just the common kawasaki v-twin noise. seems all of them have latters that are unexplainable but never get any worse. mine will be noisy at lower rpm under loads but goes away if i let the rpm go higher in all the gears. best to allow them to run at faster engine speeds as they need lots of oil to keep the overhead cams and hydraulic lifters going. they are not made to lug around.

I have a Husqvarna iz4817 zero turn tractor with a 17hp kawasaki engine.The engine rpm's surge up and down, the governor is is not steady. Any suggestions to my problem?

was stored with fuel lines not being drained/ bad fuel, you can try a fuel cleaner it may take a few times to clean out the tarnish that forms when gas is left in tanks that set and don't run for periods of time. hope this helps Tim

I have a LX277 tractor with a Kawasaki 17hp twin. The problem I'm having is the engine bogs down under load. Seems to run fine otherwise. I've replaced the fuel filter, spark plugs, sharpened the blades...

Run some combustion chamber cleaner directly into the carb. It is much better at cleaning clogged jets and orifices than commercial carb. cleaner. Pour in slowly at high idle while it is running. It will smoke like crazy. Bog it right out with the pour then let the machine sit for an hour then run the engine fast to complete the clean. Hope this helps!

1987 nissan pickup (z24) acts like there is a govner.

It is your coil. One coil cuts out under load and the other one runs full time. It'll run on either coil alone just fine. Your problem is that the one that is supposed to run full time has gone bad, the other coil which is supposed to cut out under heavy load is the only coil running your car. When it cuts out, the truck wants to quit until you let off and the computer (ECU) allows it to come back on. Should be able to find a new coil for $40 bucks. Good luck.
