Itook the carb off an checked linkage and bowl and looked, but cannotsee why....put it back together an it does same thing...could thegovenor went out of adjustment? any ideas? appreciate ANY HELP! we'resuppose to get 4-8'' today in n.y. (.....again!) scart to use it asis....thanks in advance! RC
be careful, if the engine over revs it may just explode. These engines are very picky if over sped and easily blow up.
Your problem may be a broken throttle control rod, have look at that first. If the control rods are fine and in place it could be the fly wheel governor is worn out.
