Sounds like your governor is hanging up or disconnected.it is what supplies the extra power when needed under load..try this when it is under power reach down and manualy operate the governor linkage and see it the bogging stops if it does then most likely it is the linkage..make sure it is conected then try spraying card lingage cleaner all around your carb and governor linkage while manualy operating it..there are internal and external governors if external and still hanging up take off the top cover and locate the govenor fan located along side the cooling fin area on top of the motor and make sure it is not dirty and sticking..it operates on air supplied by the cooling fins to move the governor linkage..sounds like a lot but is not..just a lot of explanation..good luck
maybe someone took off the linkage cable what you need here is to find a schematic of your unit and that should tell you where everything goes on the unit .you should be able to download a schematic from the web!
so you only have idle speed ? it must start hard there is a governor but not normal to go out of adjustment check carb linkage and springs does your thottle lever move anything when you move it ( as far as throttle plate or any linkage?
Hi quinn4776, I will try to help you with this problem. This sounds like a problem with the governor or carb adjust. Try this first, adjust the high speed mixture needle that is located at the bottom of the carburetor float bowl by turning it in 1/8 turn increments counterclockwise (4 to 6 times). After each adjustment run it and see if there is any difference. If no difference return the screw to original position. (Before doing any adjustments remember the position you start from). Now do the same with the low or idle mixture needle located on the side of carb, Try the tiller after every adjust. If this does not work return screw to original position. It could be the governor. The governor is like the gas pedal on you car, as you put a load like starting to go up a hill need to press on the gas pedal, well on your tiller the governor does this automatically for you. When you look at the carb, right on the top you should see 2 linkages that attach at two different places. One link should have a spring attached to it. Check to see if it is broken, if it is then it has to be replaced. If it looks like it's unhooked, try to locate where it goes and re-attach. If everything is OK when you check it out, then it might be an adjustment that is needed. I will not try to explain how to adjust it here it is too difficult to put into words. I hope this helps even a little bit. All the best and good luck.
You can check the linkage that links the governor to the carb. If that is fine then you can check the fuel line for a blockage, the carburetor for debris, and if that is fine then you may want to try sanding the rust off the magnet (on the fly-wheel).
have you gotten something stuck in the throat of the carb where the throttle butterfly opens and closes to control speed? check this,then check all moving parts on the carb and especially the governor spring that its not caught on something
