B112 ENGINE TROUBLE

Recommended Posts

TRAC TOR
When the engine is off, the govener goes up As soon as the engine starts the govener goes down,if I pull out the throttle the govener wants to and does stay down so that the engine will not rev up. I was tinkering with the carb the day before,not sure what I might have done. Thanks for any advise,

There are 2 springs attached to the govener,they look ok Not sure if there should be some other spring somewhere however as soon as the engine starts the govener wants to stay down regardless. If I lift the govener with a screwdriver the engine will rev but more rev seems to cause more pressure on the govener to stay down.

Did you take the carb off the motor? I think you have several holes in the linkage going to the governor and you might have it in the wrong hole. If you post your model number or hp/type motor, there are alot of experts here who can tell you exactly which setup you need.

Sounds to me like maybe the linkage from the gov. to the throttle butterfly is in the wrong hole, causeing the butterfly to move in the opposite direction its supposed to. ?

The governer set up looks just like the picture,after starting the engine; pulling out the throttle does nothing,the springs stretch but there is too much downward pressure on the governer to bring it up. Thanks for all the suggestions I am checking out everyone of them. Well the good news is once I started the tractor I was able to plow the yard,driveway and front roadway with the engine running at one constant speed. The hydro lift worked fine,shifting gears was smoother than ever and when I shut the tractor off I didn't need starter fluid to restart it. As far as I am concerned, considering the kind of day I had with the tractor,it ran like a Chalrm.
