HOW TO ADJUST SNOWBLOWER ENGINE SPEED GOVERNOR




What do you think about this video?

Jim: Hi There - just wanted to thank you for your videos, they have helped me rebuild my carburetor (Carb Kit) and place my linkages in the right spots as well as adjust the carb. Blower is now running like a top!

Michael Doucette: Hi there Donny, Here is my problem was wondering if you can shed some light on what's going on... I have a Yard King Performance 12HP/33" cut snow blower with a Tecumseh engine, It has a non adjusting carb. Runs fine at low RPM's but the moment I turn up the throttle to full speed it begins to pop and fart, backfire..... any ideas as to what could be causing it to be running rough at full throttle?? I'm about to replace the spark plug first I have checked it and the plug that was only replaced about 2 yrs ago it appears good so I'm not sure. It has the non adjusting carb so I wouldn't be able to fine tune the carb... I'm at a complete loss as to why its running like this??? Thanks Mike

gbruni1946: You are so good ,you should had been a teacher.You are good ,thanks

commanderwhite12: My Ariens St724 revs way to high at half throttle. Ive tried turning the governer arm in but it seems to no do anything or make it worse. Can you help me? Is the carb bad or the governer worn out?

nex scene: My 3 yr old Craftsman Snow blower is stuck on FULL THROTTLE. Any ideas?

ugotit33x: Excellent explanation thank you

MARK H: why would my snowblower "surge" when it's off choke. i changed the sparkplug, drained the carb bowl. When the choke is on, it doesnt. Any help would be great

Danny Bies: i have a snowblower its goes backwards but when i want to go forward its goes very slowly its a 6 speed tekumset 10 horsepower...what can the problem be

ugotit33x: Hi Liked your vids. I just rebuilt my 10 hp TECOM snow blower engine. My carb is old style with screw on bottom of bowl. On the side of the car there is a stem with a hole with part of a broken of rubber hose. Also I found lose which I assume goes here. Is this an air, line or what ? Thank you

Richard Taft: Great video Danny.... Have learned a lot from them... A Question... My Ariens manual says to set the high RPM to 3600 and the low to 1800. What tachometer would you recommend for small engines that's accurate and reliable? Also, would setting the RPM now during the summer be greatly different when used during the winter by any appreciable amount

Timothy Mills: Thanks for this video -- I had this exact problem after rebuilding the carb on my snow blower -- this saved me a lot of time and agony trying to figure out what I had done :).

Cory Barron: Great Videos Dony. I find your videos informative, and easy to follow. Thanks

jamleakatandlyd: Thanks for the Video! Bought an old tiller and when I push the throttle lever up and down - it does nothing. Replaced the spring and that didn't help. Any suggestions? Thanks again for all the videos you put on YouTube!

Jim DeBonis: Thanks Donnie! This was exactly what I needed.

Alicia Kaufman Chris Cummings: Just wondering if performing this adjustment could cause the throttle to become unresponsive in anyway? My snowblower now revs normal when idling but seems to rev the same speed at any throttle position.

concoursuph: Great Video !! I have one of these Snow Blowers, When I put a load on it, like in snow it stops, It sounds like it is running a little rough too...it is the 522R It has been sitting a while but I cleaned out the old gas and put in new gas...and at least got it running...Do you think the carb should be rebuilt ? 

Carlos Rosario: thanks my 10hp ariens was revving super high and thanks when there was no load on the machine thanks to this video i got my machine running right THANKS Donyboy73

thomas g: My problem is the same as Johnnie Guitar does anyone have the solution. Speed lever refuses drop down to idle speed when the lever is fully down. how to resolve this problem.

Stéphane D: i would like to have this video in french because my english is not perfect !!!! grrrrr

borderline666: Very Useful, thanks for taking time doing this!

Erik Smothers: That did the trick, thanks for the insight.

Johnnie Guitar: Excellent video on the governor operation and adjustments! Thanks! I have a problem that wasn't addressed in the video. My engine's speed lever gives me high rpm at the top of the lever throw like it should, but will now no longer drop down to idle speed when I push the lever down to the lower position? The revs stay high in both positions now. What 's going on and how do I fix it? Thanks! 

9secondsflat: so max rpm at wide open is just an audible thing, if it sounds ok then its "ok" if it sounds fast then its to fast???

Bob Grez: I wanted to thank you. Came back from a mechanic and I needed more throttle. My snow would throw 5 feet and engine would die out and needed multiple manual restarts. Turned in throttle mechanism screw one turn. Snow throws 12 feet, not once did it stall, more than enough power. You made cleaning out from snow a pleasure. Thanks for also teaching me a lot about carb adjustments and throttle and governor adjustments. It was a mystery art before you explained it, now it's science. Real cool. I subscribed.

Patricia Hoffman: Thanks for the video, I seem to have a high RPM but when in deep snow it does not seem to have enough speed.or enough power. I have a Tecumsch, HSK35,40, HSSK50 snow blower. I did rebuild the cab. and that went well.

tony Kari: Nice. Thanks

rosko67: I am rather savvy with small engines because i am a tinkerer and a RC nitro tunnel hall boat racer. Some of the time there is a learning curve (BOOM) just once. With all the snow we have had here in ohio a snow blower is a must. I given the task to fix all of my fathers equipment that had been neglected for a few or 8 years. To save my back no curve allowed. Brother you rock, Awesome video. The beast is back, she is running like a champ kicking A and throwing snow. Thanks!

Tom Power: Terrific video donyboy73! Thanks for sharing your expertise!

jfolck1886: My snow blower was running like crap so I had a friend take the carb off and take it to a friend of his and the guy took it all apart and cleaned it good. After putting it back on the snow blower the engine would race. Well my friend got sick so he hasn't been able to fix it. I found your video and now it runs like a charm! I just have to adjust the high throttle screw at the throttle handle to let the rpms come up just a little bit more. Thanks!

bjamesW32: Regarding engine rpm I'm astonished at how often I hear "if it runs too fast/slow" and just left to the tuner's ear. No doubt one person's ear and the next might be off by 500 to 1000rpm or worse depending on their experience with small motors. This is one of the best "bargain" category tools I've ever purchased on ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Digital-Laser-Photo-Tachometer-Non-Contact-RPM-Tach-High-Resolution-DZ88-/400564157879?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5d437bfdb7 http://www.ebay.com/itm/DZ88-Practical-Digital-Caliper-Luxmeter-Photometer-Tachometer-Thermometer-Meter-/400608819594?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&var=&hash=item5d4625798a I purchased the first one linked and have adjusted every small engine in my possession to manufacturer's spec. Best for the engine and good for my peace of mind. Dead simple. Reflective tape comes with the unit and you cut a 1/2" piece from the roll and affix it to any rotating spot on your engine. Point the led/laser (these are just led but are effective to 20 inches or something like that) and press the test button. Very cool gadget. 

tony Kari: Awesome. Vid. My toro 524 works great. But when I let go of the auger gear before it completely stops. It makes a grinding noise ? The belt looks good ? 

Nathan Dockter: thanks for your helpful videos!

rescueme67: Thanks...will do...feeling confident after watching your videos...the unit is about 6 years old...do you suggest getting a rebuild kit for the o-rings etc. before I take it apart or would you think they may be ok for that age?

donyboy73: @jhope52 thanks man

This is Who I am: @donyboy73 is the red lever the choke?

Dave jarosiewicz: For those that have a problem with it starting and then dying, clean the main jet on the bottom of the carb bowl. If you look close there is a small pinhole near the bottom. This needs to be clear or you will have the blower keep dying on you.

bayou250s: good info man!!!

John Anderson: how do I know if my govenor is wore out and needs to be replaced? I have a john deere 1032, with a 10hp tecumseh and rebuilt the carb and it is running great for the most part. My snowblower does not throw the snow very far and I just cleaned and straighted the impeller blades.

donyboy73: @aaroncake thank you sir

hsr1hsr1: Thank you for this helpful video.When I move the red throttle speed adjustment lever up or down on my snowblower,the lever on the left of it, with all the little holes in it does not move with it. The lever on the left remains down against the gas line.A second problem is that the govenor linkage (the one you adjust with the torx screwdriver) seems seized and doesn't move at all.The wires are in place. Thanks Your help is greatly appreciated.

Mark Cebrowski: Thank you for posting this.

jaylosix: Hi there, I have a 10 hp Tec. in a Troy Built blower . When you prime it the gas drips out on the ground, I have taken the carb apart but it still does it. It seems like the prime nipple on the carb is in a bad place wich allows the gas to run out of the throttle body. I was just wondering if you have seen thjis before and is there any way to correct it.

Farm Brook: @hsr1hsr1 I have exact problem you had. Have you figure out how to fix it? Thank you!

4mudski: Great video! Could you tell me why my 1995 tecumseh 10 hp engine's muffler bolts are glowing red when I finish my driveway?? Engine starts with first pull and runs great. Thanks

Stephen Boricic: Another great video. I adjusted my full throttle rpms by just tightening the screw by the throttle lever.

Diezel C.P: awesome!

diftoyota: i'm happy you got this video in here, i just bought a blower and rebuilt the carburator. my trottle dint work at all. i tryed everything and seem to me that my throttle linkage was not right. i have seen your video and it confirmed my problem, the guy intaled the linkage upside down so the rod is going under the gas pipe instead of on top haha. thanks for the video it helped me alot

70supercar: My governor isn't increasing the RPM's on my 8 HP-26" Tecumseh when I get into deep snow. When the governor is at it's max RPM in deep snow, is the carb flap suppose to be closing? When I manually push the governor lever towards the back of the blower my flaps are closing. When I rebuild and tune Holley carbs, a carb for a car when the throttle is accelerating the flaps open.

Varouj Papazian: hi donyboy iam heaving big problem with my arien 8 hp it works 10 sec and stops . i cant start the motor is not giving me any chance to adjust . the carb idal trot pls can you tell me what to do

donyboy73: @VE9REJ getting ready for winter rej?
