In this video I show you how to replace a broken carburetor throttle lever on a 2 cycle Lawn-Boy lawnmower.
The symptoms of a broken lever are that you will not be able to throttle up or down your lawnmower engine speed.

Very very well done. You did a great explanation, keep doing your videos this way know you have a career in 'how to' video making. No, I'm not joking, this is exactly what I needed to see. THANK YOU!!!

Tony Montana says:

I use genuine lawnboy 2 cycle oil, its the best, it has stabilizer already in it. My Sears weed wacker wouldn't run but when I tried my mower gas mixed with lawnboy oil, wow it starts easy. The mixture is different but my arm was sore and the weed wacker was happy! The old guy at Ace Hardware gave me a bunch of bologna that the various brands of 2 cycle oil are all the same. I told him no thanks, I'll drive across town to another Ace that carried genuine Lawn Boy oil.

Uni Sol says:

Well Donny, isn’t so easy, it requires some time to do it

Franco The-Boss says:

Hi don, I was wondering if you can make a video on how to adjust the governor speed on a lawnboy mower with an F engine.

Rob VanBuskirk says:

Dony great video. I have the same set up but when I slide that plastic piece back and forth nothing happens. It just idles at a very high speed. Could the spring that attaches need tweaking or replacement? Thank you.

Pineapple Digital says:

how do you fix a lawn boy 550e that won't start when hot? it starts with one pull when cold. any help or tips would be appreciated

Jeff Jackson says:

Awesome video! Nice job of clearly explaining the process!!

Wade Patton says:

Oh, mine doesn't have the plastic hickie inside the air cleaner assembly. Wonder how necessary that is? Running okay, just here to learn more. Good vid so far—well okay I've done all that. Looking for adjustment info on the air vane.

That was pretty quick and easy! I have a old craftsman that has a stuck throttle body. Is there any way to just remove it and make it so its full throttle always? I don't mow much and probably have less than 5 hrs on my main one over the last 15 yrs. This one was my grandfathers who needed it gone due to Alzheimer's which made it just to dangerous. Guess its my revenge for disconnecting the throttle cable. It didn't have a air filter for the last 5 yrs also. Thought I should mention that.

Jerry McCarroll says:

I have a Lawnboy SilverPro Model#10324. For some reason, when its idling or not in heavy grass it constantly throttles up and down. Its done this for several years. I changed the spark plug, cleaned the contacts on the electronic ignition, took the carburetor completely apart including the jets and cleaned it with gasoline and compressed air. I checked the throttle cable to make sure it was moving the assembly back and forth. It still throttles up and down. I can hold the governor paddle in a certain position and the engine smooths out but when I let go it moves back and forth. I can't figure out whats causing this.


Chris Currie says:

I have a 5037 Lawn boy which I believe has a magnesium deck. What is the best way to remove the old paint?

The Matrix says:

Best video I've seen on Lawnboy service

Engine201 says:

Excellent video. I used this step by step to repair the carb on my 10314 model. Runs like a champ now. Thanks!

Larry Lafferty says:

I see that the lawn mower is up on a table do you have an easy way to get it down or do you just left it off and place it on the ground?

carl jarvi says:

Good quality videos by this dude. >>> _ donyboy73 <<< . I've used his videos on a previous project which his video helped. And with this one.. thanks again..

Harry Sabunani says:

I just inherited a lawnmower just like this. I just repaired throttle linkage with the help of this video. Do you have a video on how to clean out the carburetor for general maintenance?
