Ariens 926LE Power Loss
Original Message   Feb 20, 2019 8:39 pm
The machine is a 2005 and in the last 2 years seems to have lost power. Cleaned the carb a few times and recently put a new carb. Checked the intake and exhaust valve clearance and had .006 on intake and .003 on exhaust. Figuring .003 isnít in spec but not 0 I tried the new carb. Started right up but I can see a blue flame out the exhaust and it is red hot. I figure the exhaust valve is leaking when the engine gets hot and the valve expands thermally. Do you think I am due to grind the valve to get clearance and lap the valves? I am just worried about breaking a bolt taking the head off. Thanks and any advice is appreciated. GP
