It work good when cutting the grass, but with no load on it you can't get a steady running speed. If your on idle and just want to speed it up a little to move the tractor, the motor speeds away up. Thanks for any info, Noel

On the Kohler K series engines the procedure is easy to do.

 

Just loosen the bolt (1/4-20) that clamps the governor arm to the governor shaft, now turn the governor shaft all the way counterclockwise till it stops,  then take the governor arm and move it to the left (full throttle) till it stops. while making sure governor shaft and arm are all the way to the left, tighten the clamp bolt.

 

Good luck!
