Try better quality gas. I had the same problem. Ethanol too high in lower grade gas. Buy better grade or ethanol free. Mine works fine with better gas.

You have carburetor problems. Chances are the diaphragm needs to be changed and the carb. needs a good cleaning. If you need tips on carb. cleaning, let me know.

SOURCE: engine runs wide open regardless of throttle

Check that the ACTUAL position of the throttle plate closes off the carb bore. Often the actuating mechanism slips on the shaft on aome motors due to a loose clamp.

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.

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.

How to adjust governor on a 5.5 Honda engine ?


I would check the governor directly under your fuel tank. make sure it is loose and free...also make sure your linkage is connected correctly. If it is then you need to go into the engine. This is a common problem and a certain run of Honda 5.5 engines. You will need to take apart the entire engine./..Drain the oil and tak off the back engine cover where the shaft passes through...be careful not to damage the main seal. First go here Honda Engines Owners Manuals then Once inside Look in the top side of the engine...there is a gear that turns with a governor arm touching it. It has a small plastic slider inside the center...You should be able to just slide that right out...that is the part that is worn...replace it with part number 16520-816-020 I believe. Then reassemble...make sure to use a light bead of silicone around the Crankcase cover when reassembling. then test. should run just fine. Good luck this explains a governor and how it works to get an idea
This video shows you around before you break into your crankcase...get familiar with the insides...you dont want to take anything out or hammer anything like these jokers but you just want to identify the plastic slider and replace it.you dont want to remove the weights...just the slider in the center of the weights. good luck

Governor reset


Are you asking how to reset governor linkage to factory spec? If so, move governor arm in direction that opens throttle valve on carb wide open. Hold in this position. Loosen small nut on bottom of governor arm. With a needle nose pliers turn center arm that goes into engine in the same direction you turned governor arm to open throttle valve. Holding in position, now tighten nut on governor arm tight again. This is referred to as a static setting and is factory spec. Good luck!

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.

I have a 10 hs tecumseh motor on a riding mower i need an explode view of carb and linkage when start-up engine it goes wide open


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. I understand you have a 10 HP Tecumseh engine. There are service manuals available on line for your engine but without your engine model number it is difficult to pass you the correct one: Here is the link for the service manuals:
http://www.mymowerparts.com/pdf/Tecumseh_Service_and_Repair_Manuals

Somewhere in the list is your manual.
This is my best guess without your engine model number:
http://www.mymowerparts.com/pdf/Tecumseh_Service_and_Repair_Manuals/TECUMSEH_SERVICE%20_REPAIR_MANUAL_OHH50-65_OHHSK50-130_OHV11-OHV17_OVM120_OVRM40-675_OVRM120_OVXLC120_OVXL120_OVXL125_695244A.pdf

^-Make sure you read about Adjustments in section 1 also.

Running wide open causes:
1. Broken throttle control plate spring
2. Governor spring problem
3. Internal Governor flyweight has departed the governor gear.
4. Throttle plate (butterfly) attached to the throttle shaft in the carb throat has come off the throttle shaft.
5. Broken / missing linkage
6. Someone loosened the governor shaft bolt at the base of the governor arm and allowed the governor to get out of adjstment.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

It runs wide open all the time im wondering where idler arm setting is at


It sounds like the govenor spring has become disconnected or the clamp on the governor shaft has become loose and allowed the linkage to get out of adjustment. If problem has occurred suddenly it could mean the governor gear assembly inside the engine has broken and means the engine will need to be dismantrel to replace the governor gear assembly.
Check throttle linkage to see if spring is attached at both ends, one end on the throttle linkage and the other at the fixed point on the engine or to the end of the speed control lever. With engine stopped the spring should hold the throttle wide open and hand pressure on the linkage shoud be all that is needed to move throttle shaft closed to the idle position with no binding in the movement of the linkage.
If spring is OK and while engine is running, linkage should be able to be be moved to bring engine back to idle. If porblem has occurred gradually, then linkage will need re-adjusting. Loosen adjusting clamp on governor shaft, then holding linkage in wide open throttle position rotate shaft as far as it will go in the opposite direction to that requred to close throttle to idle . Re-tighten clamp.

How to set the linkages and adjust a carburettor on a Honda HRU 195 mower


Turn the engine off, Put the throttle
lever to the HIGH position. Loosen the
pinch bolt nut on the governor arm a
turn or two; just enough that the arm will
move on its shaft.

With one hand, move the governor
arm so that the throttle plate of the
carburettor is wide open. With your other
hand, use smallish pliers that's
why there is a flat on the shaft to turn
the shaft in the same direction. Hold
everything in that position and tighten
the pinch bolt.


You've just taken all the slack out of the governor linkage.

Recheck the choke, idle and maximum RPM
and you've done all the adjusting
you can do.

First loosen the pinch bolt and nut on the govener arm at the governor shaft. To set the governor make note of the governor arm to open the thottle wide open. Hold the governer arm to where the throttle is wide open then turn the governor shaft that is coming out of the engine block in the same direction until it stops then tighen the pinch bolt and nut on the governor arm to hold the arm in position on the governor shaft. Make sure when you start the engine you don't over rev it. Start it in low speed and move up slowly. You may need to reset the spring tension.
