Question about Garden
Hi there marinetek01
sounds like the governor is hanging up or inoperative or been adjusted wrong or the worst case has flown apart in the crankcase
make sure all links and springs are in the correct place and are free to move
start engine ( you will have to hold the throttle shaft at the top of the carb or the link rod that links the governor to carb ) at a low rev point if you do not feel any closing force on the lever and rod thats trying to close the throttle - the govenor is not working - try adjusting 1st and retry
if still no joy it may have flown apart in the crankcase
but check that the throttle butterfly has not jammed in the carb venturi bore 1st
can you let me know model and type and spec numbers from engine
and i will try help further , because have seen this once before on a 16 hp b/s ohv vangaurd
it turned out to be the link on the balancer shaft broken
this engine when started went straight to full throttle
let me know
