Govenor Adjustment

Recommended Posts

Hey friends I searched to the best of my ability and I couldn't find any instructions on adjusting the governor on my power max. It doesn't seem to speed up when it's under load. Does anybody know how to do this.

Also check the linkage for binding. There may be wear or other foreign material keeping the throttle from opening all the way. Sounds to me as if you may have a fuel starvation problem. If your still using the old mechanical pump I would pull the line from the carb. and check to see if there is a good flow from the pump. Also these old pumps are getting several years on them and the diaphragms will deteriorate and put fine debris into the needle and seat of the carb. blocking the fuel flow. The other thing to check is the timing needs to be set about perfect to or you'll have a very weak acting engine.
