Customer Question

Kohler CV 490 17 HP Running at high rpm and will not idle down ??

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
Have you checked the throttle plate in the carburetor?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
The plate can break loose from the throttle shaft.
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
Of not the carburetor, can you control speed with the governor lever?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
Does the governor level have any push / pull to it?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
If no push/pull from the governor, the internal governor parts are broken, and the engine will need to be disassembled.
