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.

How to adjust the governor on 13.5 briggs & stratton intek engine?

First make sure the throttle lever is on full speed position then unloosen the bolt that holds the governor lever to the shaft which protrudes from the engine then with plyers turn the shaft the same direction that the spring pulls the governor lever until it stops then tighten the bolt the holds the governor lever to the shaft. Sometimes the governor shaft might have a screwdriver slot in it to turn it.

Governor settings for 18.5hp B&S single cylinder,31E777-2439-B1 Husqvarna

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.

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.

Setting the govener

You should not be messing with the governor. The governor wants to slow the engine down. See which direction the throttle shaft needs to travel in, usually from the carb to the governor, to close the throttle butterfly, NOT the choke plate. Loosen the governor clamp, rotate the shaft clockwise while holding the governor in the same direction. Use your head to determine how to make these things happen while tightening the governor nut back up. The engine shouldn't race, and the throttle cable should now work. I shouldn't have told you any of that. Ok, here; if your motor blows up because you do something wrong, I TOLD you not to mess with the governor BEFORE I explained how to adjust one. But that's how you adjust one.
