Keeping this in view, how do I adjust the governor on my small engine?
To adjust the governor, you would loosen the screw on the bottom of the governor arm and push the governor arm so the throttle is wide open. Then you would turn the bottom "clip" (which is connected to the governor shaft) counter clockwise. This will set the governor shaft on top of the governor spool.
Subsequently, question is, what causes a small engine to rev up and down? A carburetor that's incorrectly adjusted is a common cause of poor engine idling that results in hunting and surging. Fortunately, most lawnmowers have two screws that allow you to adjust the carburetor yourself. Then slowly adjust the screws tighter or looser in turn until the mower runs and idles smoothly.
Thereof, how do you adjust the governor on a generator?
Insert a flat screwdriver into the yellow governor control screw with a spring around the screw threads. This screw is located on the governor linkage. Monitor the tachometer reading during adjustment. Turn the screw counterclockwise to increase engine RPM, and clockwise to reduce engine RPM.
How does a governor work on a Briggs and Stratton engine?
It maintains the speed of your lawn mower or outdoor power products. When Briggs & Stratton governors are adjusted properly, they keep your speed steady regardless of engine load (the amount of work the engine must perform). When powering a lawn mower, engine load can be affected by hills or height of grass.
