Question about Husqvarna Lawn Tractor - 54in. Deck, 26 HP, Model# LGT2654

1 Answer

Engine revs faster than it should. no controle of speed.

My toro 17-44-HXL riding mower seems to have a mind of its own. the governor seems to be working ok, all external parts are intacked. springs and linkages all connected. the governor controle arm moves all the way forward as if it wants to slow engine but will not , the throttle valve is almost closed as I looked inside to check the operation. even with the throttle valve shut the engine races.This is a Briggs & Stratton model 31F777-0123-E1. Any help would greatly be appreciated.The engine does slow down a bit when a load is put on it (mower engaged) the mower is about six years old and has been maintained fairly well.

    Can you reach a finger in the carb and see if there is some sort of foreign material in there? Sounds like something stuck in the intake side.

Toro rider 16-38 HXL when I start it revs at FULL speed and sounds like it will blow up. I slow it down with choke all other linkage seems to be in place properly- Is there a trick to fixing?


Three options:

1. The carburetor throttle plate (closest to the engine is stuck); clean it with gumout and work it back and forth

2. the linkage is hooked in the wrong hole ; check the wear pattern on the throttle shaft plate to see if it is in the wrong hole.

3. The govenor arm or gear is not adjusted properly; loosten the govenor arm, push the throttle plate of the carburetor all the way closed. push the govenor arm the same direction all the way until it bottoms out. tighten the arm clamp. Test again

I recommend getting a manual or at least a free parts diagram from a local shop like www.arcolawn.com

Good luck
Joe

please vote me up if the fix was good.

Engine revs wide open when starting


Check to see if the throttle shaft on the carburetor is actually moving (with engine off) Does it slow down when you move the throttle control on the dash?
Start it up and try moving the linkage on the governor shaft, if there is little or no resistance but the engine slows when you move it, most likely you have a broken governor gear inside the engine. Another possibility is that the screws that hold the throttle plate to the shaft have come loose and the plate is jammed in the throat of the carburetor

You have governor with a missing spring or it could be in the wrong place. If the springs are all OK then you may have a bad governor gear in the crankcase. This engine is bad about the governor gears bending the governor gear shaft.
