|Steve||My JD 265 is a bear to start and backfires out the muffler when choked. When it eventually does start, it run fine. Choke linkage moves freely, no binding.
Have over 1500 hrs on the old girl, time for a carb overhaul/replacement?? Please Advise.
|Dale G. Basgall||Steve, it sounds as if a valve adjustment for the engine may help out.

|Steve||Thanks for the suggestion, Dale. Those Kawasaki engines are rugged as hell, too bad they are not made anymore. I did find what I think is the culprit........the choke plate screw wiggled loose, that choke plate was wallowing around all over the place. Was not getting enough air.....BANG!! Tightened up the screw and she is as good as new!!
Valve adjustment probably needs done, if for no other reason than the amount of hours on her.
