My 22hp Kohler engine back fires through carb won't start, need to know how to adjust the governor.


that isn't a problem with the governor, that is pre-ignition. The spark is firing too early. Normally because the engine needs timing, or because of overheating.

It seems to be a known problem, so have a read.

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.

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.).

Is it possible to replace my Kohler Command CV491S with a Kohler Command PRO CV620?


technically it is possible to do a heart trnasplant
all you need to check are the mounting flange holes or be able to drill new holes in the mower frame
and next the method of attaching the drive pulley or pto to the crank shaft has to be considered

Motor is running eratic up and down under load


One of the most important parts of your engine is the engine governor. An improperly adjusted governor can shorten your engine's life. If engine speed is not controlled, the engine will destroy itself. Never run an engine over speed, especially without a load attached to it. Even for a short period of time it can cause catastrophic failures, like blowing the magneto magnet into 100's of little pieces. Over speeding is something that needs to be taken care of immediately, because it can be a real hazard with metal coming loose at high speed. This page will explain how to adjust the mechanical governor on Briggs and Stratton and Tecumseh Engines.
First, let's understand a little more about governors and why they may not be working right:
Most complaints about governors fall into two categories:
  1. Engine runs too fast or too slow.
  2. Engine surges or hunts.
You should do an inspection of the governor linkage and spring before trying to solve either of these problems. Make sure everything is operating freely and the spring is not damaged or stretched. Also, check the governor static adjustment to see that all free play has been removed between the spindle and carburetor. The best way to do this is to move the throttle from idle to full open and note the way the governor shaft moves. If it goes clockwise, then loosen the clamp screw and with the throttle wide open turn the shaft all the way clockwise and re-tighten the nut. Make sure the throttle moves from idle to full open freely after making the adjustment. Refer to the engine repair manual for exact adjustment procedures.
After you have made the above check, restart the engine and see if the governor now operates correctly. With the engine at idle, move the governor lever with your finger to open the throttle and it should push the arm back toward idle if working properly. One way to do this test is with the governor spring removed. If it still over speeds or has no push toward idle, you probably will need to have the internal parts checked inside the motor or recheck the static adjustmen

Engine revs up and down, improves when choking half way


Sounds like to me that your governor may need to be adjusted. Too much detail to explain here as to how to do it.

A dealers technician can fix that in 5 minutes if he knows what he's doing.
