    I've tried to adjust the speed, but it wont hold the blade up.
    Should I just send this somewhere to have it rebuilt? Or is this a simple repair?
    My gut feeling it's the valve body, but I'm not an expert.

    Is there a preferred shop to send it to? There's not a western dealer in Albuquerque.

    sounds like the check valve needs to be adjusted
