pow'r max gov

Recommended Posts

Hey guys i am new to the world of pow'r max tractors and onan engines and i was hoping for some help regarding gov problems with my 9020. when i put the throttle on fast it just screams and sounds like its gonna blow up and it won't idle worth crap. if i grab the throttle lever on the side of the carb and hold it somewhere in the middle it sounds great. now i can move the gov shaft that sticks out of the block up and down about 3/8 of an inch. something tells me that it shouldn't have this kind of play in it. any help will be greatly appreciated.

Zach, It sounds to me like there is an internal problem with the governor. Do you have the Onan service manuals? If you do not have them, PM me with your e-mail address and I will send them to you. JOhn U

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
