HOW TO ADJUST SNOWBLOWER ENGINE SPEED GOVERNOR




What do you think about this video?

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.

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! 

tony Kari: Nice. Thanks

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.

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!

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

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???

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 ? 

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.

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.

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!

pete barber: well done thank you for taking time to make great videos...

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

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

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

Ray Josephs: Question, I have a Tecumseh hssk 50-55 on my snow-bower...always stored off-season properly. First usage this season, fresh gas in, fired right up and runs great however, I notice it's not RPM'ing as high as it normally does. Should I first adjust the governor screw or adjust the governor arm???

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. 

4x4extreme5: Whats the fix for a carb that only works when its fully choked. thanks

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?

donyboy73: @grandisleme could be

donyboy73: @bustedsnowblower ur welcome

Farm Brook: @hsr1hsr1 I have the exact the same problem. Have you found the solution? Thanks!

donyboy73: did u replace the seat and needle

rescueme67: if i had to make guess...seems like it burns off whatever fuel enters from priming then runs out of fuel.

ConkersBFDN64: I've got an Ariens snowblower, and when I move the throttle up, it just keeps reving higher and higher. I've already eliminated the adjustment screw as the problem, as even when I back it out all the way, it is still too high. It seems the Governor doesn't pull back on the throttle at all, no matter how fast it revs. I'm not sure how I'd fix this, since the Governor is in the engine. Any suggestions of what else could be the problem, or if I'm right, how I could fix it?

donyboy73: clean the carb and watch my tecumseh carburetor videos

j k: On my snow king 80 my gov keeps rev in and out and the muffler gets red and backfires allot but under a load throwing snow it runs fine. Why?
