M14 won't idle below about 1400 rpm. I can screw the idle speed screw in further but I have to push the throttle closed and the governer will open it up.

The throttle cable probably isn't allowing the governor/throttle to close enough.

Put it to the curb, I'll be over to get it.

The wife and I were talking about maybe making a run to Starved Rock anyways, relatively speaking you're not that much farther....

went garage sale-ing locally and found a 12hp K301 for a good price,,, has compression and seems to want to start.... I wonder how many of these things they made with a recoil pull starter.... I would not want to have to pull on this thing very many times.....
