MrTheHillfolk: I've adjusted the governor already, yet it still goes to the moon unless I throttle it back down manually. and I already fixed a broken exhaust valve keeper from the excessive rpms when my friend had it. As a Briggs tech , I think its time to open up this Tecumseh and check the governor gear and the arm,unless you have any other ideas sir. Love your videos, they've helped me out quite a bit over the years.
lock1nout: does my choke need to be fully off to reset the linkages as well? my 10hp is hunting. great videos btw.
John Milner: This is from a Tecumseh shop manual on how to set the governor on either a vertical or horizontal crankshaft. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CcFkJW1XIAEpIAa.jpg and how I set mine on my 8hp-26" Mastercraft Tecumseh horiz shaft snowblower.
Daniel Hodson: I love your videos. I have subscribed. I have referred to this one because I have a full throttle power issue on my 8.5 hp Tecumseh. The lever adjust screw is not touching when it is turned off. Should it be touching?
Gilles Hamel: en francais svp merci
Jason Santos: awesome videos. I just got a Jacobson Homelite 824 with a Tecumseh 8HP engine for free that "didn't work." Cleaned the Carburetor, changed the belts, changed the fuel line and spark plug and it runs greats. The carburetor linkage and screw adjustment videos were extremely helpful. Thanks for the good info.
Albert Chasse: Very well done, thanks for posting it's just the one I needed.
Matt Conlon: Great help - thank you!
Cornbread Warrior: Another great video! Thank you very much Donyboy!
Tyson Washburn: this will help me a lot. thanks.
Pete Barber: love your videos brother...
Tim Brennan: My 10hp Tecumseh engine surges. I replaced the carb, but it didn't help. The governor continually moves the throttle back and forth. If I hold the governor lever still, the engine runs smooth. Is there any way to correct or tighten the governor to stop the surge?
ryan gray: great videos! changed the carb on a free simplicity I got. it runs perfect now. thanks
Robert Appel: Well done Donny, very helpful, Thanks
Barry Suydam: it helped
-Doug -: Please send me the correct part number for the scraper for my 1971 Ariens sno thro. The website diagrams have a two piece kit. Our old units is one scraper bar, the diagram is wrong. Please send me info on the correct part number and where I can get the correct scraper for my 71 Ariens snow-thro 7hp H70 Tecumseh engine. Thank you.
alexander merx: Hello Dony, I´m German about your videos help me. Alex
this video is very helpful. I removed my governor to clean my carb (very bad idea BTW), and am having difficulty getting it properly set. In addition, the carburetor's throttle shaft (which has the linkage connecting to the governor) does not move back once the throttle is in the idle/off position.
Im not sure if my throttle spring is bad, if there is an adjustment I need to make to the governor or what... Upon inspection, my throttle spring looks fine. It is not broken, and appears to be installed properly. There just seems to be no pressure/tension to retract that throttle shaft on the carburetor.
I posed a video. Can you review it and let me know your thoughts?
Tim Callahan: Is there any way to find out what the RPM's are???
Jake Vogelezang: Hey Donyboy73, i have an old (mid 1980's) snapper snowblower with a techumseh motor. Mu problem is that i need to run the engine on partial choke in order not to run too fast. Could this be caused by the governor out of whack?
