Question about Tools & Hardware - Others
After starting up the governor arm shifts in to full revs. It seemed logical that there should be a spring to pull the arm back (to oppose the one that pulls it in). I have attached one to the governor arm back to the wire frame around the muffler but it doesn't look like it belongs there. It does work to a degree but the motor seems to struggle with the right amount of revs now. I can't find a manual with a decent diagram of how the governor should be set up. The arm can be pulled back manually without problem and doesn't feel like there is anything sticking but could this problem be caused by something other than a missing spring?

This sounds like a mixture issue. At the time you pull the trigger, the machine is intended to speed up. I suggest that you get the carb jets adjusted.
