Your governor should not need adjusting unless someone moved it and you want to go back to factory setting. Having said that. You will loosen small nut on bottom of governor, follow the travel of governor to watch the throttle in wide open position. Hold it in that position then with needle nose grip the center of stud coming out of bottom center of governor and move this all the way in same direction as wide open throttle, then snug it up and your done. Good luck.

When trying to generate electricity, it stalls. Oil level good and carb has been cleaned thoroughly. Linkage for auto throttle up is moving like designed. Any thoughts?

will assume it a petrol not a diesel

that govenor is adjustable
with all the load and vibration and use
sometimes that govenor adjustment will need a twig

lever moving up and down is a good sign
does it need a spark plug
or valve adjustment
if all that is ok
if you push that lever slowly full forward and motor stalls
may tell you its govenor needs a twig

ADJUST THE GOVENOR ON MY LT 155 John Deere lawn tractor

This should be Kawasaki engine; although, it could a Kohler. The IPL on this doesn't specify which engine it has. It would nice if it did where I could look the engine's service manual but the following should be what you need.

You place throttle in full throttle position. You need to watch the linkage at the governor shaft for which it turns as you go to full throttle then you would continue turning the governor shaft in that direction until it stops. From there you tighten the retaining bolt or nut and you should be good to go.

Our cs56 pro will idle all day but it won't rev up

That CS-56 soil compactor is set up with a govenor to stay at a fixed speed! If you need to change the speed you need to reset the govenor bu adjusting it to tighten the spring. If the revs increase in that direction OK, otherwise turn the adjustment the other way!

I want to adjust my 1500watts generator,how will i do it?

What do you want to adjust? The voltage is likely NOT user adjustable. The frequency is controlled by the speed govenor and needs to be checked under load. For engine adjustments search google for small engine repair for tips.

John Deere Lt 166 ride on mower

jd lt 166 has 5 different decks
3 of which have the same belt routing
1st the belt needs to be adjusted correctly to stop it from "slacking off"
then on most decks the belt is routed in between the 2 small idler pulleys and then to the engine pulley
so let me know the deck i.e. 36", 42 ", 46", 48"
different belt sizes also
