  1. my mower is a riding lawn mower bs 17.5 hp it kepps reving over and over again i dont know how to adjust the governer correctly

  2. I wanted to see how the end of the spring that looks like a paper clip attaches to the throttle linkage. I guess you just squeeze it thru? Could not see that at all.

  3. way too dark video. and went way too fast through actual replacement. never showed the actual configuration of spring and brackets etc,. very frustrating.
