HOW TO ADJUST SNOWBLOWER ENGINE SPEED GOVERNOR




What do you think about this video?

Pete Ciallella: @donyboy73  Thanks, I was wondering how to increase the high running idle.  Mine has a torx screw as well, 7 HP Tecumseh Snow King on a Snapper Snowblower.  The high idle is low.  Where is a place to get a descent tachometer?

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?

Noam-mor Gaddaffi: Thanks for making it easy. The rest of the videos I watched are completely confusing, by the time I get done watching one I know the person's family members and what size underwear his uncle wears...ridiculous!!!, but not how to adjust the gov at the end. 

Jamie Steele: Hey great video, I'm having trouble finding the model number... I have the exact same motor as the one in your video just wondering if you can tell me where to find it.

Slash Nguyen: Great video. Thanks

Mike Helms: Dony,
I sure do enjoy your videos, so clear and easy to understand.
Thank you. Mike

van SPENCE: I have a Tecumsea snowblower my problem is that when I put a big load on it in some deep snow it starts to sputter and will just keep sputtering until I remove the load or put throttle down to half speen then move it back to full throttle be for it smooths out again
Thanks for your time

gary hill: my throttle linkage fron governor to throttle seems to short throttle wont go up straight 8hp tecumseh

Nicholas Paley: Thanks for this video! Question after adjustment of the governer screw and the throttle screw adjustment, what safe RPM is to be achieved here to get optimal performance? Is there a way to guage it or just by ear. I'm in the same boat here but afraid I'm running a little high RPM. 

John Pacheco: I just want to say Thank You. My 8.5HP Tecumseh engine was revving realy high. Thanks to your video I was able to adjust the govenor, now its running like it should. Once again Thank You.

Brad Larrabee: @donyboy73 My 9hp craftsman (536.886260) snowblower only runs at full throttle with the choke 1/2 engaged and bogs down anytime either switch is moved.  it revs super high when running.  any advice?

Travis W: This seems to come up a lot on here a lot and i just want to clarify it. It does not matter if you buy the lowest quality gas or the highest for your small engine. The most important factor is the age of the fuel. every time you use your snow blower, shut the fuel line off and run it until it dies. Gas these days after a few weeks will gum up and the ethanol will draw water in as well. 

Phil Zazzera: Hi DonyBoy73...great videos..quick question. I have 1970 something Ariens snowblower which tends  to stall when it takes on a load/snow? I would have to wait until motor to catch up before throwing more snow. Any ideas?

Wayne Dion: Hi Donyboy,
I have a Brute snowblower what would cause it to bog down and wants to stall when it takes on a load? I would have to wait until motor to catch up before throwing more snow.

medic09901: Donyboy, Thanks for the videos! I have a question for you: Have you had any luck with fuel additives that are supposed to clean carbs?

Chris Miller: Hi Db,
Thanks for your info. I installed the pin & seat set in the carburetor. The engine starts but I have to keep the choke out for it to rev and it dies if the choke goes back in.  I feel like the throttle speed is a nonfactor. There is no difference full throttle vs low.

thoughts?

thanks,

Steve Chapman: Just want to say thank you Donyboy73 for sharing all your engine know-how! You have single hand-idly saved me from having to shovel myself out of this Nor'easter. My snow-blower is running great because of you! Thank you. Thank You. Thank You!!!!!

John Jadwin: Thanks for the video !  A few years ago I had my snow blower serviced and it just seemed like it never ran well.  The small engine repair man said he worked on it for a while and got it as best he could.  This company has been in business for 30 + years and yet they still didn't make it run right.  It always seemed to idle slow.  I just followed your tip on adjusting the screw on the throttle lever and it ran perfectly! 

Calvin Lee: I have a question for ya donyboy73. My HMSK80 Tecumseh won't run without the choke being on 100%. Even after the engine has warmed up (running for more than 15 minutes) I'll attempt to turn the choke to 1/2 but the engine will start to spit and sputter. Any suggestions ? Thank you in advance !! GREAT videos by the way !!
