Accidentally ran it on choke for 20 minutes!
I have a fairly new Ironton (sold by Northern Tools) 180cc pressure washer. I accidentally ran it on choke for 20 minutes. No excused....just a stupid mistake. I was wondering why it was running rough and not as powerful as usual. When I realized what was going on, I switched it to "run", and it immediately stopped. After that, it would only backfire when I would try to start it. I thought maybe the flywheel key was sheared, so I checked the flywheel key, and it wasn't sheared. I wanted to adjust the valves (OHV), but can't find any specs for it. I took off the cover, and they moved freely, but I have no idea if they need adjustment if I don't have the correct specs. I put it all back together, tried to start it again, and it runs, but roughly, and only on 1/2 choke. Any thoughts?
