Did all tune-up runs a little too good. How do i turn the rpm's down over revving unless I'm in real thick grass

Hi Michael:
This question is in the cars and trucks section, but it sounds like you're dealing with a lawnmower.

If it is a lawnmower, it's probable that the governor spring is not hooked up to the right place, so the engine thinks it needs more power. Check the linkage from the governor to the carb.

John deere instructions

Your mower doesn't have enough power to handle very thick grass at high speed. You need to go slower across the lawn. That's easy to do if this is a push mower (just don't walk so fast) or if it's a self-propelled model with a speed control. But if it's a single-speed model you'll have to mow the lawn in fits and starts: squeeze the lever to move it forward; release it when you hear it bogging down; wait for the motor to reach full speed; squeeze the lever to move it forward again; repeat. Also, is the grass very high? If so, try setting the cutting height higher on the first pass, then lower it for a second pass. Finally, make sure the blade is sharp.

I have a Scotts 20 HP 48" deck. starts fine, runs fine but bogs down in thicker grass. This is not overly thick grass nor above 4 inches high. It also seems that the speed of the tractor is not great..

Do you have your throttle all the way up? And if so you might want to check if maybe your throttle cable might be stuck on something preventing it from rasing the throttle.

Replace stripped gear

This sounds to me like a simple governor issue, and to be more precise a tensions spring. Along with the the linkage rod from the governor arm to the carburetor should be a small spring as well, check it and make sure it hasn't come loose or even fallen completely off. This spring works to make the govorner transitions slower and smooth and eliminates bouncing back and forth of the gov. I hope this helps.

Blade slows down when grass gets thick


The reason the blade slows down when the grass gets thick is simply because the mechanism operating the blade is weak and cannot move fast when on thick grass.

I suggest you troubleshoot the mower. After that, the blade should work fine when the grass gets thick.

Also, some mowers normally gets slow when grass gets thick, so after troubleshooting, if the mower does the same, then you already know it has to be slow when trying to cut thick grasses.

Take care

Lawn Mower Starts, Runs at Idle Smoothly, but it will not kick up

Ok it need a governor adjustment,depending on the brand of engine, there should be a tab with a spring attached. U need to bend the tab slightly to increase the rpms.
