MAG 2000 Throttle Rod Assembly

4 posts in this topic

yesterday my (Throttle Rod) came apart from the throttle. Does anyone have a picture, or could explain how the two are connected? I'm not sure if I'm missing any parts or not. What keeps the rod connected to the throttle?

I just replaced the handle on my mag 2000 the throttle cable/rod assembly connects to the throttle handle with a screw there is a collar that goes throughthe handle and the screw holds the cable to the handle.

Go to strikemasters web site and they have some pretty good pictures of the assembly.

PS did it detach from tne handle or from the carb?

EDIT. Not sure if you were looking for advice on the following or not. I'll leave it because its a common issue to lose or damage the spring.

The throttle cable is more of a stop. There is a spring attached to the plate/linkage of the governor linked to the carb. The other end of the spring goes to a post on the case of the engine. As you squeeze the throttle the plunger depresses. The end of that plunger is where the idle speed stop screw is located. The spring will pull the throttle plate open which increases the RPMs. There is a fin that is connected in that linkage that is mounted next to the cooling fins on the fly wheel. So say you have the throttle held wide open with no load on the auger. The air going over that fin will move the linkage so that the RPMs will stay at a safe threshold. As you put a load on the auger while drilling the engine, that relation to fin and air from the cooling fins on the fly wheel will keep the RPMs at a constant. That is how this governor works.

So that is why they use a spring and not just any spring. You'll need to get a replacement for that auger. Any authorized service center will have the appropriate spring. When you go to install the spring you'll see two locations on the linkage. Pick the further location for a little more RPMs.

Thanks guys

From the carb

The throttle spring is still there and I can raise the speed by moving it. It is the throttle rod that fell off the carb. Is there a clip of some kind that holds it in place?

I was at the web site and all they had was a picture of the throttle rod
