HOW TO ADJUST SNOWBLOWER ENGINE SPEED GOVERNOR




What do you think about this video?

Fast Eddy: My snow blower only runs full at throttle , when I slow it down its back fires a lot and down to idle it just dies !! Carb has been all cleaned

MotorcycleJunky07: Donyboy73,
I am stuck! I have come across a problem that I haven't seen anyone specify or address in their videos. I must say I really appreciate all your knowledge and videos you post. They have been very helpful. The snowblower engine I'm working on is very similar to the one in this video; carb, linkage, throttle lever, and the governor. The problem that occurs is the engine bogs down when three things are happening; the wheels are being driven, the auger is spinning, and snow is being thrown. The engine doesn't seem to bog down when only the first two are happening while not throwing snow. What I have done: cleaned carb and made proper adjustments to the main jet fuel screw below the carb bowl and the idle mixture screw, checked compression (100-115psi), and pulled the underbelly of the machine to check for abnormal wear of all components (nothing obvious). Please let me know what you suggest and/or a link to one of your videos. Thank you in advance!

billeybop: When I need a very thorough how to lesson, I go to one of the very best on YouTube "doneyboy73"! Thank you.

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!

Amish brotherhood: 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

Fearless Front: 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.
