Hi Jonathan,

So long as the subaru engine is not too big, I can't see why it could not 
be used. Typically I use small air-cooled engines with no 
electrics/battery. A simple pull-start works best and easiest.

to look at the carburetor (which usually is beside the air 
filter/cleaner). On this carburetor, there will be a butterfly valve which 
may be connected with a spring. See:

engine and carefully move this valve, then the speed of the engine can be 

Best of luck,
