HI I'm sure you have the right carbs, did you check the original for wear? did you try adjusting the main jet?

something interesting about the gov.... when you watch vids of people setting the gov.  They first make sure the throttle plate is wide open then losten nut and rotate shaft.  There is simply no way to do this on my 361.  the linkage spring will not let the plate open wide

That throttle bushing will drive you nuts,  I had the same problem it was the BUSHING, Check you tube to see how to change it.

I bought a new carb  from Kohler and it did the same thing. If I pull mine apart again I'm going to add a very small O ring between the bushing and the top of the shaft, grease it well and see what that does.

Hi Beef, adding an "O" will not work it adds to much drag  BTDT doesn't but your right on its the carb NOT the Governor

The bushing size needed is 1/4" X 3/8" X 1/2"

Here is a short video of the governor and again I'm a extreme novice at this so please excuse my ignorance if it's blatantly obvious to others what the problem is just trying to figure this out

I was just looking through the K361 manual concerning the governor. On chpt4, page 13 it talks about governor sensitivity. The spring is supposed to be in the third hole from the bottom of the governor arm and the second hole from the top of the throttle arm. Does that check?

Yes something is wrong, I ran one above the max rpm and threw a rod. Mine goes up in speed as you move the throttle up .

Yes I did DH one but when you pull the arm all the way over it does not open the throttle all the way in or anywhere near it

The spring is in a way that only allows a throttle to open about one-fifth of the way

Disconnect the spring, then do the adjustment.

 

The spring opens the throttle, the more tension the harder it pulls to open the throttle

The governor arm closes the throttle, the higher the rpm the harder it pushes to close the throttle

 

2 forces working in opposite directions set the rpm's
