Still got the revving engine problem, I had to put the cab and chains on before we got too much snow for me to ride it down the hill to the barn where the cab was stored. It was hard getting back up the hill even with tha chains becaus the wheels kept spinning. I still cannot figure out the revving problem I have tryed everything I could think of and everything else you guys told me to check. I fix 2 stroke engines, fix my pick-up and my wifes minivan. For some reason I can pull my own when it comes to every other engines but this one :mad2:. I even tried adjusting the carb but it changes nothing. Now my carb is probably all messed up on top of it because ive been messing with the adjusment screws. The small engine shop is out of the question because Ive recently found myself on workers comp and I cannot afford it.

Is there a possibility that the governor is messed up inside?

The wheel weights may not be enough, especially once the blower is on. You may need to put a big weight on the rear hitch.

KennyP has a good point. Check the governor. The first thing is to see if any of the linkage pieces are loose. Do you have the engine manual? Carefully review the section on the governor to see how to adjust it.

It has been so long now I don't remember if this ever ran right for you. If it did, maybe something got knocked loose when working on it. I'm going to read through the engine manual for awhile tonight and see if I can figure it out. It would be so easy if you lived nearby, I'd just drive over with my test equipment.

Please describe the reving problem.

I used my old manual but realized that you were probably using http://gardentractor...service-manual/ . Page 1.4 has the troubleshooting guide. Most likely: carb adjustments which are shown on page 4.1 & 4.2. It gives the initial adjustments to use. Other possibilities are carb clogged( there is a good description of carb rebuilding in the kohler manuals section), spark plug gap too small, vacuum leak. Old or dirty gas could cause the problem too. Good Luck

Nah not the governor, the revvin comes from wrong air fuel mix (I think)

It did run right all summer then started to miss and rev then the gas pump died. Adjusting the governor implies thst it is already all oiginal parts!!! I personnally cant garanty that

The reason I suggested the governor is that my Cub lost the governor gear inside. Took a while to figure out what was causing the problem. Put a new gear in it and it runs good again.

Yeah I tought that governor was the problem since its the one revving the engine, but last night I realised that I have an air leak in the gas line and also have to reajust the float in the carb. the problem might soon have a solution and I had a tractor mechanic look at the governor for a couple minutes as a favor to me and he pointed the gas line and the probable float problem to me. So on I go to reajust everything and see if trouble is fixed
