    Default Butler bogging down under load

    cant quite figure it out - changed the throttle cable , serpintine belt, clutch belts, and belts on the blower and pump - its revs up to the right rpms but under load it bogs down - any guesses as to the problem ??

    Have you tried calling Butler?

    Why am I the only smart person here?

    I forgot about the clutch,hook up a vac hose and go to the front of the van and put the machine under a load,first without it,then with it,see if the clutch is slipping.

    Sound like what my WhiteMagic did and it ended up being the clutch slipping under load. Check and see if the clutch is letting out alot of dust or a rusty color on the clutch housing itself. Mine would clean great until it heated up and then lose power!

    Definitely check the clutch. Also check your vac load to make sure your vac relief is opening at the right time.

    I don't know if Butler uses any kind of vacuum pod that is hooked to the van throttle to compensate for vac load (a governor of sorts). If so, that could also be a place to look.

    Take a look at the crankshaft pulley on the van to make sure it isnt worn.
