I replaced my throttle and shift cables. Shortly after I started having an issue with the engine, requiring the throttle to be advanced in order to start, then it stalls when returning to neutral. Is it possible that the cables need adjustment?

It sounds like it to me.  Did you follow the rigging/service manual on installing them?  Motor and throttle in Neutral, gap between arm and throttle roller?

Not sure why it stalls though.  Did you change anything else?

Thanks for your reply Phil. The cables didn't come with any literature, and from what I recall my Service manual doesn't outline rigging procedures. I believe the motor and throttle were in neutral, but Im not following you on "gap between arm and throttle roller?" Is there literature out there on properly installing new cables? 

I tried trouble shooting this last year and in doing so I replaced the plugs and cleaned the EGR valve. That is all.

There is some in the Operators Guide, and there's a topic on here that shows Joe talking about TPS adjustment - it includes the throttle roller having a gap.  Need to do a search, or someone may be kind enough to post again.  This site has several of the more recent guides -   http://www.operatorsguides.brp.com/Index.aspx?lang=e&s1=4737e43f-38ba-4719-ac21-fc879e38aca0&brands=ej&type=og  

From one (not sure if it's yours - need to verify but they aren't too different) Operators Guide - Hold the shift linkage in NEUTRAL. Push and pull on the shift cable and observe the cable slack. Hold the casing guide in the center of the slack. Adjust shift cable trunnion to align with center of the trunnion block. Place cable trunnion in trunnion block. Install trunnion cover and screw. Tighten screw to a torque of 60 to 80 in. lbs. (7 to 9 N·m).

Throttle Cable Installation and Adjustment With remote control lever in NEUTRAL, pull firmly on throttle cable casing to remove slack. Place throttle cable on throttle lever pin and install washer and retainer clip. Refer to Cable Retainer Clip Installation on p. 51.  Make sure that idle stop of the throttle lever is against the crankcase. Adjust the throttle cable trunnion to align with the trunnion block. Place the cable trunnion in the trunnion block. IMPORTANT: Move control handle to FORWARD and pull back slowly to NEUTRAL. Make sure the engine throttle lever is against the stop. If not, remove slack by adjusting cable trunnion. Install trunnion cover and screw. Tighten screw to a torque of 60 to 80 in. lbs. (7 to 9 N·m).

Not mentioned above, but I like to see at least "daylight" between the trottle cam and roller - maybe 1/16" to 1/8"?

EDIT:  Not sure what you mean by EGR valve.  You weren't wrenching on an old truck were you?  JUST kidding!  [wink]

I will dig into this. Thank you Phil! I said EGR for a lack of better word [wink] I guess I meant to say the lower exhaust nipple. I did clean that when I tried to fix this last year.

Aha!  Found the post...  Thanks as always to GEB (Gavin) - I've 'bookmarked' it this time.  [wink]  Mostly about TPS cal, but some good stuff on cables, too.

Hi,
Also see,Search results for “throttle cable adjustment “
http://www.etecownersgroup.com/search?keywords=throttle+cable+adjustment+&member=&sort=subject&order=desc&radio_showas=threads&topics=atleast&do=findthreads&action=doSearch&threadid=&btnSearch=Search
Lots of info there
I found that when I ( complete novice ) fitted new cables the manual wasn’t that clear but once done correctly It’s a simple process. Unfortunately no substitute for experience.
Cheers
GEB

Thank you very much gentlemen. I hit a few bumps repairing my trailer, but once that's complete, then I'm tackling this throttle issue.
