Default Adjusting a Walbro on a 127

I have searched through my service and owners manuals as well as the archives on this site, plus an hour of posts and still can't find any adjustment proceedure fo the Walbro carb on my 127. Can anyone help? Thanks

You only have one adjustment on a Walbro, the low speed adjustment screw on the side.. To smooth out your idle.

Does you Walbro have a 52 or a 64 stamped inside above the choke plate? How many adjustment screws are on it? The older Walbro 52 had an idle adj screw, a main jet adj screw and a throttle stop adj screw. The later ones did away with the main jet adj. The adj can be found in the tech library section. The procedure is in the Kohler manual. David Kirk at Kirk Engines has played with the Walbro carb a bunch in the past and has some good info on these carbs. Seems around here nobody likes them very much. I say take what ya got and make it better.

Default Kohler

I went to kohler website and downloaded the k301 user manual. It has the adjustments in there. My walbro has the low and high idle screws just like the #26 does and it ran fine with it.

Couldn't agree with that statement more!! I just went through the education of how much Walbro's are junk! My 147 had one on it, got a complete rebuild kit for it @ $35. Cleaned and rebuilt it and it worked like complete crap Needless to say I was perturbed and after posting on it here, I got the lesson. A fellow member saw post and sold me a #30 carter for $70 shipped and now the 147 runs great!!

Default walbro on 127

Thanks all for responding JaysNJ,thank you especially. I have the 127 owner and service manuals,but not the 301 owners.


There on p.12 is a drawing of the 3 screw walbro i have. Good thing for the diagram because I wouldn't have guessed that the screw on top was the low idle. My 149 w/kohler carb is opposite as most of you know.
No, I'm not going to scrap it and get a kohler carb.............yet. haha
Back to the barn

Thanks

Tt

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
