Did you download the Tecumseh Basic Service Information manual in the engine manuals section. I think it has a section on governors.

Yes, I have that bible, but the drawings aren't really clear enough. It's helpful, but not quite enough.
Thanks

I have the carburetor and fuel tank off of my MF-7, but here are two pictures. One shows the link rod connected to the tab that extends off of the U-shaped bracket that mounts to the governor, the tab that is reoriented when adjusting the governor setting. The second shows the carburetor throttle tab with an arrow indicating the hole for the link rod. If this isn't what you were looking for, let me know and I can probably get a picture of the system assembled (minus the fuel tank which still needs work).

I had made up my own rod, but not sure if the length was correct.
Wasn't runnng right, so I ordered a link from Tecumseh.
Will post pic once I get it, and installed.

On the setup on my engine, the length of the rod wouldn't make much a difference, because of the way you can move that little tab that projects from the governor U bracket. I don't remember the exact procedure (I'll need to brush up on it shortly when I connect mine) but you loosen the retaining screw on the tab, hold the throttle full open and the governor at full speed position and then tighten that tab screw. If I remember this allows for a pretty significant amount of play (at least 1 cm) which would compensate for different rod lengths. I am not sure if this type setup was employed on all the Tecumseh H-70's.

I'm dealing with an HH60 and I'm using the setup you are talking about. The engine sounds like it's gonna scatter if I open the throttle all the way up though (revving WAY too high) Any suggestions? Pics of the rest of the setup might help if you have or can get them.

And on another MF7

 

It had the wrong spring when I got it.

Correct spring at idle.

At wide open.

 

P8270215.JPG

 

The linkage ratios are out of wack on these MF7s, so

you'll only get this much travel on the throttle lever, when at wide open.

Or, maybe I'm missing something, but I've never had any luck with it.
