Typically it is dirty passages inside the carburetor. Basically fuel flow is slightly restricted so the carb is working outside of its normal calibration - the governor is not controlling well outside the normal calibration. This is most common after long winter of no use.
I use carburetor cleaner. I carefully disassemble things like the fuel bowl (preserving the gaskets) and spray cleaner down the jets, through every air passage etc. (there are small air bleed holes in the carb venturi). Wear eye protection because it will squirt back at you sometimes!
Mixture screws... Screw them all the way in, counting how many turns until they bottom out. Then screw them all the way out and remove them. Spray cleaner down there as well. Re-assemble screws by bottoming them out and backing out the number of turns you counted.
Never use drills or wires to clean out passages on a carburetor. Hard metals will wear on soft brass fittings. Carburetors are calibrated! Carb cleaner in a spray can is relatively safe.

It will run 100% better (and start better as well).

Next time use fuel stabilizer (I put it in every tank because I can never predict when the 'last' time I will use it will be).

Can you Regulate the Engine Speed Using the Governor Arm? If Yes, then Reset the Governor. **To Reset the Governor; Loosen the Governor Arm Bolt and Turn the Governor Shaft Clockwise Until it Stops. Using the Governor Arm Hold the Carburetor to Full Throttle. Now with the Shaft Full Clockwise and the Governor Arm and Carburetor Held at Full Throttle, Tighten the Governor Arm Bolt. If the Engine Still Runs Full Throttle, then Reverse the Rotation of the Governor Shaft, but Still Hold the Carburetor at Full Throttle with the Governor Arm. If it Still Runs at Full Throttle, then Check the Internal Governor.** If you Can Not Regulate the Engine Speed Using the Governor Control Arm, then Check the Carburetor Throttle Valve. If the Throttle Control Valve (sometimes called a Flap or Plate) Mounting Screws Came Out of the Control Valve, then you will have No Control Over the Engine Speed. Send me the Model and Type or Spec Numbers Off the Engine, Please. With these I can Locate the Proper Manual and Better Assist you. **The Throttle Cable Attaches to the Throttle Control Bracket. The Cable Moves a Slide that Moves a Pivot. The Pivot has the Spring Attached to it and to the Governor Arm. The Solid Link Connects to the Governor Arm and goes to the Throttle Shaft on the Carburetor. When the Throttle Cable is Moved it Moves the Pivot and the Pivot Pulls the Spring. The Spring Pulls the Governor Arm and the Governor Arm Moves the Throttle Shaft. Usually the Spring is in the Lower Hole in the Governor Arm and the Solid Link is in the Top Hole of the Governor Arm.** If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance. Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens

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.).

Governor does not seem to work


Sometimes the governor gear inside the engine breaks and you have to replace it. Did you try to adjust the governor by putting the throttle full and unloosen the screw on the governor arm and push the governor piece the same direction as the throttle opens and tighten the screw.

I have a 24HP V-Twin Briggs that i blew up. I found the parts i needed and rebuilt the beast. It starts and runs but i cant get it to throttle down. I split the case again and inspected the governor....


A big vavume leak and or the throttle blade doesn't close or it gone ( missing). the carb should close all the way ( you can't look thiugh it) with the linkage off you should be able to run it by hand with good results. if you can find out the correct way to put the springs on and just move things around or gat a look at one thats working right and you may see whats put together wrong on yours.

Had the same problem with the same engine. Governor control in the base of the engine fell apart. Requires pulling the engine which is pretty easy, then removing the bolts along the bottom of the crankcase. YOu'll see the governor and or pieces in the bottom. Use a magnet to get all metal pieces from the oil, then replace the governor. Get the model and type off the valve cover from the engine when replacing governor. 3 hour job and you're done..////While it's out check the valve lash by removing rocker covers. Set them at .006 or a tight 007. That way you'll know it didn't through a pushrod when it was over reving..good luck
