Simplicity 3108

Recommended Posts

stijntje113
Hello, I've bought an simplicity which doesn't work. Something with the carb is wrong. I've cleaned the carb, and now it almost runs. Although the little steel stick which operates the air intake isn't connected. If i close this intake, the engine runs. My problem is that i don;t know where to put this little steel stick. So it gets connected to the throttle. Is it possible for someone who has an 3108 to make an picture or to explain where i can connect this stick? Thank you in advance, and sorry for my spelling. Stijn

The 'steel stick' you refer to, is the link that connects the carb throttle plate to the governor arm. You will have to remove the control lever box and carb, then connect the two and then reassemble the carb and control box back on the engine. The governor arm is approx 55-75 MM long and also connected a short stout spring which is the governor speed spring.

Thank you BLT for your explenation. Although it's not really clear to me yet, therefor i have made some pictures from the governor arm. I think theres maybe missing a spring or don;t know where to connect. I've made a picture of the place i think this "steel stick" should come, but if i connect it there, and re-assemble the control lever box. It doesn;t stay at the same place, and get loose again. Can you please explain me ( with help of the photo's) where the steel stick should come. Thank you in advance, Stijn Gregoire http://www.mijnalbum.nl/Foto-K7KFFZFH-D.jpg http://www.mijnalbum.nl/Foto-FKLQ3EUY-D.jpg http://www.mijnalbum.nl/Foto-7AWCZFIO-D.jpg http://www.mijnalbum.nl/Foto-CGMA6BPV-D.jpg

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
