Ever since i took this engine apart years ago, and saw how this works, i was really amazed with it. its so simple, yet such a good idea. and an integral part of pretty much any Work based small engine.
Just thought i’d share how this thing works with you guys. I’m sure alot of you already know how these work.
Also i hope to be able to help anybody who has bought a bolens or anything with a single cylinder wisconsin engine where someone has tried to tweek the governor, trying to get more speed or power out of it, and in the process screwed up the adjustment, and messed up how it works.
So if anyone has a problem where it doesn’t add throttle when the rpm’s drop due to load, or it just keeps revving higher and higher, then thats probably the issue. And it can be re set to the proper adjustment.
