Need to adjust the governor settings on above tractor,starts and stops
The governor shouldn't need to be adjusted unless it has been bumped or removed. But, if your sure the problem is the governor, you adjust by moving the governor arm in the direction that opens the throttle valve all the way open. Remove air cleaner and filter to inspect while doing this to make sure. Then note that direction, keep in this position, then loosen small nut on governor linkage at base of unit. With a needle nose pliers, turn small center shaft of governor linkage(the part that leads inside engine) in same direction you moved the linkage in earlier step. While holding in place tighten small jam nut. This is called a static set, which is a factory standard. Also, make sure throttle cable is in wide open position when doing this. Good luck.

The governor is there for a reason, to keep the engine from over-reving and self destructing. Sure, you can get more speed by removing/raising the rpm's, if you want your rod to end up sticking out through the back of the engine case.

First things first! Before you installed the new belt, did you check
the blades and idler pulleys to see if they all turned freely with no
resistance while the belt was off and the blade brakes released? Release the blade brakes by engaging the handle with the engine off!
When you installed the new belt, did you put the back side of the belt against the flat pulleys and the inside of the belt in the V-pulleys? Did you double check to make sure you didn't inadvertently miss a belt guide getting the belt on the outside of it instead of underneath it. Did you look at the picture in your owners manual to make sure you had it routed correctly and make sure it is not rubbing against anything when you have the blade lever engaged? CHECK THIS WITH THE ENGINE OFF If you don't have your owners manual, look under the foot boards on the tractor, many of the Sears tractors have the routing diagrams there. If it is not there you can go to searspartsdirect.com , enter model number 917.257644 (NOTE the number difference) and look at the picture of the deck, it shows what the belt should look like when it is installed. You can also download an owners manual there. As best as I can remember, there is no adjustment for the idler pulleys.
