After repairing small engines for over 50 YEARS,,,,I can just say "some people have no guts !". Here this engine owner is asking for some HELP ! Maybe he doesn't have money due to illness etc.Maybe he can't transport engine ! HE knows where repair shop is !!
I HAVE LOOKED AT MANY A SCHEMATIC FOR GOVERNORS(spelled correctly !) and if it overwhelms one--THEN come back to it in an hour and repeat. It worked once- it will work again ! For the owner AND techs: this is a very complicated setup with springs of different coefficients (pull strength)-levers with 3,4,5 holes in them etc. HOWEVER IT IS ALL EXPLAINED IN THE FACTORY SERVICE MANUAL=EASY to read. You will have to get the chapter on carburation for the engine. Good Luck Derfly

Setting the govener


You should not be messing with the governor. The governor wants to slow the engine down. See which direction the throttle shaft needs to travel in, usually from the carb to the governor, to close the throttle butterfly, NOT the choke plate. Loosen the governor clamp, rotate the shaft clockwise while holding the governor in the same direction. Use your head to determine how to make these things happen while tightening the governor nut back up. The engine shouldn't race, and the throttle cable should now work. I shouldn't have told you any of that. Ok, here; if your motor blows up because you do something wrong, I TOLD you not to mess with the governor BEFORE I explained how to adjust one. But that's how you adjust one.

Hello, my Briggs & Stratton generator, PP5000, Intec, 8 hp, Model 202412, type 0167E1, has lower power output, 180 Volts in stead of 220-230 Volts. Any idea where I should look ? Engine is 8 years...


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Usually when you have a lower voltage output that is yet above 150 VAC the problem is as simple as the engine is no longer running at full speed. This could be caused by binding carb or governor linkages but more often than not the Governor adjustment screw has backed off over time causing the engine to gradually slow so the output voltage drops. The user does not notice it so much until the output drops more than 15% and you notice dim lights... slower running equipment etc.

Look for a circular plate / governor speed plate near the base of the governor lever but off to one side that has a spring that attaches to the governor lower end of the governor. There should be a screw with a locking nut. Loosen the nut and turn the adjusting screw clockwise to increase engine speed. (You may have to barely loosen the pivot nut on the governor speed control adjustment plate to make the speed adjustment.... tighten when done with speed adjusment) Watch your output voltage and adjust the voltage to 225 VAC with NO LOAD. The voltage will drop as loads are added. Make sure to tighten the lock nut on the adjusting screw or in a matter of an hour you will have low voltage again from engine speed dropping. What ever you do.... DO NOT adjust the governor arm base attach point where it attaches to the engine.

Just so you know a weakened governor spring can cause the speed drop also. If the speed keeps dropping with extended use, you may have to change the spring that goes from the lower end of the governor arm to the governor speed adjustment plate.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Governor does not seem to work


Sometimes the governor gear inside the engine breaks and you have to replace it. Did you try to adjust the governor by putting the throttle full and unloosen the screw on the governor arm and push the governor piece the same direction as the throttle opens and tighten the screw.

The govenor rod cannot be adjusted. The springs are intact. Motor revs up but will not idle down. It is 23 HP.


Just guessing here, but if there is no control of the throttle and the engine over revs, then more than likely the governor control is broke. Briggs if famous for that problem. Governor is around 25 dollars and a lower crankcase gasket. Requires the engine to be pulled, lower crankcase removed, remove all pieces of old governor and then re assemble with new governor and gasket.////Before doing all this check that both springs are on the governor on the exterior of motor. If you manually hold the governor arm back, counterclockwise, and it still revs, then you need to replace governor. Don't let it rev for long or it with throw a pushrod or worse. good luck

Engine is surging after warmup on a BS 4 hp, no carb adjustment


This problem may SEEM carb related, but it is probably a result of bad linkage to the governor (controls engine speed) and may mean the governor needs adjusting (easy) or the linkage to the governor is stretched or not connected properly.

Miller welder starts fine bur appear to run out gas need help adjuting linkage to fuel control


you need to adjust the throttle governor on the side of the carburetor you will see a adjustment screw do a weld to get the welder to runs at high speed then adjust the screw till it runs continuously, if it still dies out change the fuel filter and try again drain the carburetor bowel if it's diesel replace fuel filter and run fuel threw the water trap.
