Ask Your Own Small Engine Question

c​an you manually move the governor? Is there a change in the rpms if so

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
No cant move it at all

so​unds like the engine will need to come apart and the governor will need to either be adjusted or replaced. engine will have to be cracked open to repair this.

Is the engine turning over as normal?

it is
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
it is

engine will need to be torn down and opened up to determine further info. if the governor is not moving manually, there is something inside the crankcase keeping it from moving.
