HOW TO ADJUST SNOWBLOWER ENGINE SPEED GOVERNOR




What do you think about this video?

FearlessFront D.W.: Hey Donny, what do you reccomend, the max rpm to be set at on a Tecumseh 8hp, hmsk snowking engine at full trottle? 3600 rpm? I checked the engine on my Snapper and its running at around 3450 rpm at full throttle right now, but it needs a cleaning and slight adjustment. Its a 2002 year unit, it has an adjustable carb. Can I set it to 3600 rpm or should I leave it, what to you suggest? The machine always had lots of power and threw far, Im not sure if it was always at 3450 or if it dropped over time from heavy use? Thanks in advance.

Carlos Mejia: A put fuel on that engine now it won't start what that's can be

Al L: Great tutorial! You explains things very well.
I have a problem that is a related to the throttle lever, but is a bit different. I have a 1999 Ariens model 924104-ST1028 Sno-Thro with a Tecumseh model HMSK100 159391W emgine on it. I can raise the throttle lever & increase the rpms, but as I use the snow blower the lever drops & the rpms shortly drop off. So, I have to tie off the throttle leave in the max up position while snow blowing, otherwise the rpms drop off too much to blow snow well.
I thought the problem might be the Tecumseh 34663 Spring as you showed in the video above. When I checked it out, it looks intact, in one piece, plus it does work when increasing the rpms.
So, what could be the cause of losing the rpms?
Sure would appreciate some help. I would prefer not to have to buy the entire Control Bracket Assembly P/N 34677. Looking for a less expensive fix if one is available.

zzaa2691: Donyboy73: Just wanted to thank your for your excellent videos. When I started my Ariens Snow Blower this morning it was racing like crazy. NO idea why this would have occurred. I have never done anything to the carb, and it was running fine yesterday.
Followed you instructions and was able to fix the problem by adjusting the governor arm.
Motor ran great after that, but the unit would only throw snow a few feet and got bogged down in high drifts.
Went back to YouTube and found your video on adjusting and replacing the V belt. Thanks to your excellent video the hardest part was finding the right belt. - I did find a cotter pin puller to be very useful in getting the belt aligned on the wheel.
Very grateful for your help.

Craig Hanlon: excellent mechanic! Thank you so much for you video

strictlyxjs: this video saved my ass thank you!

Ryan Ferguson: Thank you so much for this video. You just saved me so much time!

TheCi82: this guy I methodical in his descriptions. Not to much info, just enough. great videos. check out his others.

MN Patriot: What size Torx screwdriver was that for the governor arm Dony?

TheCalmbrain: I have a craftsman 13 hp compression seems fine new belt (both) auger/traction it has a high rev but when going through deep snow it wants to bog underload so I back off and do it in chunk wwould the linkage be off and it does have a new carb thank you

Axefiend777: Thank you for this video, You helped me a hell of a lot! Cheers!!

Jay Cole: EXCELLENT instructional video. well done. thanks.

an american to review: so I had to run a new fuel line through my Tecumseh snowblower engine in that processed I did wind up disconnecting the governor control rod and carburetor control rod and the governor control arm was removed and this past Friday I ran that snowblower and it had melted off the exhaust where the exhaust bolts or cherry and fell off so I think that little bit on the governor which I think is what I messed up will help thank you

Semper Fi: donyboy73. Good video. My problem is that the rpm seems fine at light loads but when I get a full "bite" of snow in the intake the engine does not seem to rev up to take care of the extra load. The rpm seems just to stay the same and the snow is thrown 4 feet instead of 30 feet like it used to be. When I stop advancing the snow blower the distance comes back. Would the solution be the adjusting screw on the throttle linkage?

John Hodge: that's the one that pop off and made my crank go through the casing

William Fitzgerald: with mine unless it is under load the engine speeds up then slows down is this the governor?

jim machen: hi

Jay Landry: Whats the proper RPM for that engine at full speed?

roger shimshim: thank you

Chad Rivet: Thanks Don!  As always, you are my go-to for my small engine issues!  As you mentioned, I replaced the carburetor and took off the governor arm for the linkages and didn't re-install it in the correct position.  At full throttle I was turning at 4200 RPM!

Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
