Carb and throttle linkage on a Tecumsen LEV120 361015A

Proper linkage conections are the challange. Presently there is a conection from the govenor with a spring and conection rod to the carb. And a rod attached from the the govenor to the throttle. Throttle control opperations are reversed. Carb air flow is almost stationary. Running operation is very fast or extremly slow and stalling, when canging linkage options on the carb.

You want the spring to hold tension against the governor.

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

I have a troy built Rear tine Tiller It runs greAt but when it gets under a lload it bogs down and goes dead I have rebuilt the carb and it didn't help

Sounds like your governor is hanging up or 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 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

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.

Conected to the rubber induction boot is the impulse hose, it is a short curled pipe, make sure this has not split and is conected to the two nipples on the carb flange.

I have an old tecumseh 10 hp eng model vm100. with carb problem

Rigid link to the top hole on govenor arm, spring link to second hole. If engine 'hunts', try the 3rd or 4th hole. Each lower hole will take off a few rpm, but make the engine less prone to 'overshoot' the goverened speed.

If you have not disturbed the govenor arm clamp where it fixes to the shaft that goes into the engine, that should be all you have to do if you have, proceed as follows ;-

Assemble as above. With engine OFF, loosen the govenor clamp. Push the end of the govenor arm so the carb throttle is wide open. Whilst holding it there, rotate the shaft in the same direction as the arm would have rotated it if you hadn't lostened the clamp. Ensure it's rotated as far as possible (this removes ant 'lost' movement in the internal govenor mechanism.). Now tighten the clamp and release everything. Push the speed control to FAST. The throttle should open, and it will requirer about 4 OZ of force on the end of the govenor arm to close the carb throttle. This force will be generated by the govenor when the engine is started

Move the speed conrol to SLOW. Most of the tention should disappear, allowing the throttle to close with very lettle pressure on the govenor arm.

If all this behaves as described, you should be safe to start.

Starts then runs full speed. tec 6.5 on toro personal pace

First I would check the carb and make sure the throttle plate has not come loose from the throttle shaft. If it has there is a small screw missing which should be retrieved if at all possible. Also check the springs on the throttle linkage to make sure they are not in a bind.
If the carb checks out and nothing is hung up then you can adjust the running speed by bending the tang that holds the fixed end of the throttle spring. bending towards the carb and loosening the spring will slow the motor and away from the carb/ stretching the spring will increase speed.
If you have slacked the spring and the motor continues to run fast then it needs a govenor adjustment.

Start the lawn mower and the motor revs real high.

1) This time of year with all the leaves and debris, a piece of debris might have found it's way around the outside of the carb and is caught in the throttle-butterfly linkages.
2) I have experienced the throttle butterfly screws being loose inside the throat of the carb
3) And the worse case senerio, the govenor gear inside the engine is broken.

*Check the easiest external things first, could just be debris.

Carb. Problem?

It could be the linkage from the govenor to the carb, maybe the throttle shutter is stuck. Try WD 40.
