Customer Question

I have a JD L110 Lawn Tractor (by Scotts/Home Depot w/ kohler 17.5 engine.
I cannot get the engine rpm high enough to provide a good cut. I have cleaned the carbuerator, air filter, replaced the spark plug and fuel filter, checked the fuel tank rod, fuel pressure, etc.
I have adjusted the governor as described on the internet and cannot get the rpm as high as it shoudlbe be without the governor kicking in and reducing the rpm. What might I lookk for?

Set throttle cable, and then set governor. Basically you need more spring tension for high speed.
