I have a Toro Lawn Mower with a Tecumseh LV148EA-362003C engine.
It is Idleing very high and can’t seem to adjust it down. How do i do that and what would be the cause
ANSWER : I could not find a listing for the full engine model number, but there are a lot of engines that start with LV148EA. The good news is that I glanced at the part number for the carburetor on about a half dozen of these engines and they all use the same carburetor. Assuming that you have the same carburetor on yours that the others have, I was able to pull up an illustrated parts drawing for the carburetor. By studying this drawing and a TecumsehPower carburetor manual I was able to determine that you should have a Series 11.I have been doing some research on your problem, before you mess with any adjustments you should check a few of other things first. One is to check that the bowl gasket is not bad. Two is to check that the fuel pickup is not restricted. Three is to check that the idle port is not restricted. The first one requires just taking the bowl off to look at. The others require removing the carburetor to inspect and clean.If none of those remedies corrects the problem, then it should be time to adjust the screws.I hope this helps.

ANSWER : You can get this manual directly from the website. A lot of manufacturers have their manuals available and just out of curiosity I checked there and in they do have tillers like the one pictured here. Enter pony tiller in the search box and you’ll get a page of their different models. Click the one you have and it opens into another window showing the tiller, and beneath it is a bar with “overview” Specs” “Accessories” and “Parts & Manual” You can download the manual and – “yippee!!” – it’s even free.
