    jlg60h boom lift

    I have several volt meters and some electrical experience but no expert. From what I see the blue 40 only goes to foot switch. I think the 12v may come thru foot switch and when you press start button it sends the 12v signal to start on the black wire. But I’m certainly not sure of that just...

    jlg60h boom lift

    Off: I see same blue wire but not certain how to troubleshoot. I figure I can use a test light and make sure basket button is getting the 12v. The machine (40h) has a master switch w/ key and an ignition switch on ground. Also has the start button in basket. If machine shuts off or e-stop is...

    Jlg 40H issues

    Off- I would say both girls act the same. On gasoline it will barely run period. ON Lp is idle great and and I can manually move the throttle and it will rev way up and hold. Will rev to the point that I back off because I think she’s turning too many rpm’s. But when I load hydraulics the...

    Little help needed. Having same issues. Couple cylinders started leaking. Machine sat for 2 months while fixing his cylinders. Now it won’t badly run. Idle at best when loaded it shuts off. So I’ve tried to swap to LP. Those was leaking and nasty so I temporarily rigged up another hose...

    Jlg 40H issues

    Maybe you are right about that clear filter. It seems to run ok for most part. The idle screw could be set wrong. I had a mechanic help me rebuild and setup the carb. He is top notch mechanic but he could have it adjusted wrong. I’m gonna hook a light to the fuel shut off and make sure it does...

    Jlg 40H carb setup?

    Just an update. Got machine running ok after going through carb 3 times. still doesn’t idle as good as I think it should. Almost shuts down when I swap from ground to platform. Throttles down too low it seems. It didn’t want to shut down without dieseling, so I replaced the fuel shutoff solenoid...

    Jlg 40H carb setup?

    fixed one issue but still think solenoid is bad. It wasn’t getting power because somebody flipped the switch to lp. Got that fixed but it doesn’t want to shut down without killing master switch. So I think the solenoid maybe isn’t closing off right. The bad fuel had corroded it pretty bad. We...

    Jlg 40H carb setup?

    got carb back on and still wouldn’t run. Took out shut off solenoid amd put a plug in it. Cranked up and ran like it should but wouldn’t shut off with switch. Had to kill master switch. put solenoid back on it ran fine until gas was gone out carb. Wouldn’t crank back up. Maybe solenoid is bad...

    Jlg 40H carb setup?

    so would you agree that if carb has a stopped up jet or something of that nature it could still run good on lp if that system is working correct? I’m Considering trying the lp and if it runs good that route I can repair or replace carb later.

    Jlg 40H carb setup?

    will any lp tank hook up to the hose? Tank is missing on machine. I have several lp tanks for cooking purposes but wasn’t sure it was same fitting.

    Jlg 40H carb setup?

    Can any of you explain the how the lp fuel system works? Does it still go though carb? Lift has all the lp stuff there but hasn’t been used in a while. Would it be worth trying to run it on lp instead ?

    Jlg 40H carb setup?

    I’m afraid of that. Had similar issues with few small engines and I replaced those carbs. Of course they were much cheaper. I was hoping since this was a bigger carb we could clean it easier. We will see once we take apart again. New carb is 675 cheapest I’ve saw. Ouch

    Jlg 40H carb setup?

    the carb was very bad. After an all night soak we still have to work in several passages. Seems all let air through. Cleaned tank and used new non ethonal gas. Maybe some passage is still restricted. Gonna take back apart and see if we find anything we missed.
