Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello, are you sure the gov is adjusted properly and the gov spring is installed correctly and the tab it connects to is not bent outward too much? Thr nut was loose and you pushed the gov lever to the wide open position and turn the gov shaft coming out of the engine in the same direction?
Loosen the nut, move the lever and link counter clockwise to open the throttle and rotate the shaft in the same direction
Not clockwise. move both in a counter clockwise direction.
