10 hp governor adjustments

Recommended Posts

I am trying to adjust the governor on a 10 hp Briggs engine on a 3210v. When I bought the tractor the governor control lever was loose and the springs were hanging so I don't really know what position the springs need to be at. I looked in an older Briggs service manual and found a really simple procedure involving maxing out the throttle and adjusting the governor control lever, I tried various spring positions and still have no governing of the engine. I tried that procedure however it still doesn't work as good as my 64 landlord governor works. Is there a more detailed procedure on governor adjustments, along with how to troubleshooting? Also in looking at my 64 Landlord governor it appears as if there is some fairly strong spring action that is inside the engine block acting on the shaft that the lever is clamped to. Should the lever that is clamped onto the shaft have some springing action in one direction like my 64 Landlord does? Any help on this subject would be most helpful. Thank you in advance. Sincerely, Colin Morris

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
