Help with governor on Kohler K321 in my 147.
Posted April 10, 2010 - 04:02 PM
I did the initial adjustment on the governor linkage per the manual where I loosed the nut on the governor arm that clamps onto the cross shaft and pulled the linkage as far as it would go and turned the cross shaft counterclockwise all the way and then tightened the clamp nut.
Now it runs about the proper rpm at full throttle and doesn't sound like it is going to explode. I don't have a tach yet to check the actual rpm. Now with all that being said what I am wanting to know is are the Kohlers suppose to lug down a little under load? Like with my masseys when you put a load on the engine you hear it bog down for a split second and then it is right back to full rpm. The Cub if I put a load on it by either driving or engaging the mower deck it bogs down just a little and then stays there it never picks back up but it doesn't seem like it wants to die either. It just keeps chugging along.
If that isn't how it is supposed to be I am wondering how far I am going to have to dig to find the culprit?
