Hello, you can try to adjust the governor and if that doesn't work it's probably internal. What is the engine model? (GX 160, 200)

Did you try adjusting the gov? If you loosen or disable the pressure link does it run normal?

Any luck?

No luck. But right idea. I like to fix wheel barrow compressor, I have 20-40 in my possession at any time. I have never seen this pressure switch/gov combination. Send me the replacement schedule for the govener ( including internal and a parts diagram for a emglo compressor (gas) from 30 hrs ago with pressure switch consisting of bent screw or w/e u can find ( I know emglo stuff is hard to find) and I'll credit u.
