Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello . Im Bobby
I got a question for you.
Is the engine surging? or just running wide open?
Did this just start happening?
Have you done anything to it ?
OK, Can you give me all the numbers off the engine ?
Hello again , ok, Here is what I would do first. Look at the picture from the link I sent with this. I would try to adjust the external governor linkage , Loosen the bolt number 562 that attach's the lever to the governor shaft , then move the lever in the direction that would open the carb to full throttle , then turn the governor shaft in the same direction , and re tighten the bolt , and try it out, If that don't work it is possible that the governor gear is broken inside the engine ,
Yes you are correct, The engine would need tore down to repair.
