7016H govenor

Recommended Posts

On my 7016H # 1690006 I just rebuilt my 326431-0190-01, starts great but the governor arm sticks. When I turn it off I have to raise the arm a little then it frees up, also when running I advance the throttle and nothing happens until I lift the arm a bit then all seems normal. The arm is not rubbing on the block and the shaft will move in and out slightly. Is it the governor? I don't think it's the throttle plate. Thanks in advance. AJK

If you worked on the carb it is possible to install throttle plate wrong and it will jamb up in the idle position. When the plate is stamped out, the edges have a slight angle on them to prevent jamming at idle.;)

The governor shaft should not move in and out any significant amount. It should be just loose enough to prevent binding. I had one that didn't work correctly because the arm was pushed in too tight against the block. Had another that was loose enough that the governor was disengaging. Both worked fine after readjusting. Both times I thought I had a broken governor till I messed with it.

OK, throttle plate is not sticking, took arm of governor shaft, held throttle closed, started it up, let it run at idle for a minute, shut it off. Throttle plate free as can be, governor shaft sticking.

Question, can I get at the governor without pulling the crank and cam shaft, can I get to it by just pulling the front plate off?

Thanks for any and all input.
