My ford 120 lawn mower will not rev up until it gets hot and sits for 15-20 minutes. If you you have Any answers please a comment.😄

Hi dabz71 Welcome to GTtalk!

Couple things first. Have you done any routine maintenance on this? ( plug, points,air filter and oil change etc..)

Has this been acting up for long? Or was this sitting for a long time before it got use again?

If you can give us a few more details we will be more than happy to help narrow this down for you.

Welcome to the forum! Which Ford 120 are we talking about here? What engine does it have? Here is a link for info on the older models, '66-'72. It will be easier to figure out once we know which 120 it is. A pic can help identify it.

Sounds like the governor shaft is sticking.
