SOURCE: GOVERNOR ADJUSTMENT ON A FHV 500 17 HP KAWAQSAKI ENGINE

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

One engine startsand you move throttle to run, engine runs at extreme rpm's and will not throttle down


John the governor is probably sticking, check for dirt and debris, make sure spring/ linkages are still attached, after cleaning lubricate linkages with lubricant WD or similar. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Honda Gv 100 works well if grass is short to medium loosing power with high grass any idea


Patrick, Ensure mower has good gas, good spark plug,Is the blade good and sharp. Clean any dirt, grass etc, form around the carburetor and governor linkages. It is possible the governor on engine may need adjusted, or spring off or a dirty carburetor needing cleaned internally. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How to adjust governor on a Tecumseh hmsk80?


Static Governor Adjust.

With the engine stopped, loosen the screw holding the
governor clamp on the governor lever. Rotate the clamp in
a direction that will force the throttle shaft open and allow
the governor follower arm to rest on the governor spool.
Push the governor lever connected to the throttle to the
wide open throttle position. Hold the lever and clamp in
this position while tightening the screw.

My 1811 cub cadet only idles at one speed, mid range


The correct way to adjust the governor, if this is the problem, is to loosen the set screw at the bottom, then adjust to an idle by rotating the linkage arm , it should try to self center. There may be a problem internal with either a broken arm or Governor thrust pinion.

Kohler V-Twin (624 cc) RPM on the engine does not stay stable , It will raise and lower the RPM in any Throttle Range. Could the Governor be going bad???


Try a static governor adjustment first as it simply be out adjustment.

Static Adjustment Procedure
Make this adjustment whenever governor arm is
loosened or removed from cross shaft. Adjust as follows:
1. Make sure throttle linkage is connected to governor
arm and throttle lever on carburetor.
2. Loosen nut holding governor lever to cross shaft.
3. Move governor lever toward carburetor as far as it
will go (wide open throttle) and hold in this position.
4. Insert a long thin rod or tool into hole on cross shaft
and rotate shaft clockwise (viewed from end) as far
as it will turn, then torque nut to 6.8 N·m (60 in. lb.).

Kescorpio56:
Check your throttle and choke settings. Something is causing the throttle plate in the carburetor to remain open or the governor is improperly set. I would reset the air/fuel mixture screws to one and a quarter turns out and back the idle screw all the way out. Make sure that the throttle cable operates the throttle properly and check the governor setting and reset the governor setting if needed. Start the engine and adjust from there. When the engine starts, adjust the idle screw until the engine idles. Adjust the fuel/air mixture screws for the best idle. Then run the RPM up and adjust the fuel/air mixture screws for the best run/idle combination. Don't forget to adjust the governor if the engine runs too fast or too slowly.

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

Motor is running eratic up and down under load


One of the most important parts of your engine is the engine governor. An improperly adjusted governor can shorten your engine's life. If engine speed is not controlled, the engine will destroy itself. Never run an engine over speed, especially without a load attached to it. Even for a short period of time it can cause catastrophic failures, like blowing the magneto magnet into 100's of little pieces. Over speeding is something that needs to be taken care of immediately, because it can be a real hazard with metal coming loose at high speed. This page will explain how to adjust the mechanical governor on Briggs and Stratton and Tecumseh Engines.
First, let's understand a little more about governors and why they may not be working right:
Most complaints about governors fall into two categories:
  1. Engine runs too fast or too slow.
  2. Engine surges or hunts.
You should do an inspection of the governor linkage and spring before trying to solve either of these problems. Make sure everything is operating freely and the spring is not damaged or stretched. Also, check the governor static adjustment to see that all free play has been removed between the spindle and carburetor. The best way to do this is to move the throttle from idle to full open and note the way the governor shaft moves. If it goes clockwise, then loosen the clamp screw and with the throttle wide open turn the shaft all the way clockwise and re-tighten the nut. Make sure the throttle moves from idle to full open freely after making the adjustment. Refer to the engine repair manual for exact adjustment procedures.
After you have made the above check, restart the engine and see if the governor now operates correctly. With the engine at idle, move the governor lever with your finger to open the throttle and it should push the arm back toward idle if working properly. One way to do this test is with the governor spring removed. If it still over speeds or has no push toward idle, you probably will need to have the internal parts checked inside the motor or recheck the static adjustmen
