Governor requires pushing forward to start. Requires two people to start

governors always stop in the full throttle position
when the engine starts the governor action is to move to the idle position against spring tension
the higher tension the higher the rpms
moving the throttle lever increases the spring tension on the governor lever an so the rpms increase
from what you say there is something wrong with the governor/ spring set up
from your photo the system may be reversed and the spring pulls to idle in which case the throttle will decrease the spring tension for higher rpm
which ever way check where the spring is located

Why is it hard to push on the brakes

The most obvious cause for a hard pedal is simply not enough vacuum. Check the brake power booster by pumping on the brake pedal while the car isn't running. Continue pumping until you've "bled off" the vacuum from the booster. Hold the pedal down while you start the car. The pedal should go down a bit more beneath your foot. If it doesn't, then you should examine the connection between the vacuum hose of the brake power and the engine's vacuum.
Replace the brake power booster if the connection's fine, which would fix the hard brake pedal problem.

It may be your calipers need replaced. Check them for signs of wear. Look at the metal spring where the brake pads sit.
Apply tension to the pad and see whether you hear a pop. If you do, the brake pad is moving too much on the bracket. Replace the caliper. This could help the hard brake pedal.

93 accord ex 5 speed release cylinder isn't pushing out enough to shift help

The problem is in your method of bleeding. It is a 2 person operation. Remove the bleed screw on the slave cylinder and place your finger over the hole . Get your helper to push down on the pedal at the same time you take your finger off the hole . replace your finger and have them pump several times and hold down . release your finger to let out the air . Repeat the process until you have trouble holding your finger over the hole. Replace the bleed screw and have them pump the pedal and hold down- release the bleed screw. tension the screw and repeat the process until you get a full stream of oil. Keep an eye on the reservoir level and keep it full.. Only use oil from a new container that you have just broken the seal on as old oil will contaminate the system. before you start.

My brake lights don't work. I've changed the bulbs & checked the fuse. any ideas?

You could check the brakelight switch located on the brake pedal linkage. Sometimes they move out of adjustment, sometimes they fail. The ones I've seen are usually plastic and the threads strip off so the jamb nut won't hold the switch in place correctly. It should be round (or at least the part with the mounting nut should be round) with a plug with 2 or 3 wires going into the back and located so that the brake pedal lever moves away from the switch when you push on the pedal. If you deem that it needs to be replaced the switch should be available at most auto parts stores.

1993 Jeep Cherokee: hissing/weak brakes

If you are talking about when you push the pedal you hear an air noise and the pedal is real hard to push then you most likely have a bad power booster. If your pedal is weak and goes low to the ground you most likely have a bad master cylider as well. Best to just change both. For that year model shouldnt cost much and not hard to install.

The brake lights stay on. When I remove the fuse they turn off. What can I do to fix the problem?

I had the same problem. In my case it was not the brake pedal switch contact which I replaced anyways as it is very inexpensive on Autozone. Your brake pedal makes contact with this switch with a round little plastic piece and when this piece breaks after many years of use, the hole left on the break pedal does not push the contact switch thus your brake lights stay on. Go to a Nissan dealer PARTS and tell them your problem. The solution is less than $2 and even though is a little hard to fix, you will be happy when you are done.

Hint: Push the brake pedal as you are installing this little plastic thingie.

check 2 things first one is their is a plastic check valve that is inserted into the booster (under your hood) then goes to a vaccum line ,then to the engine, pull it out of the booster and check the valve it should be L - shaped. it might have a hole in it causing a vaccum leak. be carefull pulling it out not to break it just pull straight out. if that is ok put it back in. then your problem is going to be the brake booster the big black round case. sometimes the diaphram inside the booster rips causing a vaccum leak which causes a hard brake pedal and you have to stand on the pedal to stop. then you will have to repace the whole thing but not the master cylnder unbolt master cylder with the brake lines connected, the lines will give then disconnect brake pedal arm under dash inside of trk their should be 2 nuts or 4 buts under dash on inside of firewall near brake pedal then remove booster pulls out from under hood. there is not much to replacing them.
