my panzer 1107 runs great after a carb rebuild and governor work. But, kow it runs perfect when ur on a flat but looses rpm and power when goin up hill or pulling a trailor. what could be wrong. Idk if the 7hp has enough power to pull a 800 pound tractor with a 235 pound me on it. Whats wrong

Is the engine loosing rpms? When you say pulling your trailer is it while going uphill also? If it is could just be your float setting on the carb.

If you are driving on the flat and then start up hill, does the governor respond? If it does, it probably is just what Nutndun said, if not... Hopefully just gov adjustment.

Idk but that is alot of weight for the little 7hp to pull. You could look at the gearing off the motor also.

7hp is plenty if the gear ratios are right

If the float level is set right then we can rule that out. Can you tell if the governor is kicking in when the engine starts getting a load on it?
