Jim.... You're right. I measured it and found it to be just under 1/2 inch.

As I mentioned in my other reply, I rechecked everything so I'm pretty sure I'm doing it right.

If I take up the misalignment it looks like I'll use all the thread on the carb rod.

Do you think I should do that and then try the low speed bumper adjustment or just go straight to the bumper adjustment?

When you say you have the same problem, do you mean you don't have enough threads to move the yoke on the carb linkage to get the holes to line up?

When I set the throtle all the way up then hold the carb rod up to match the yoke to the gov.rock shaft I have to run the yoke all the way out to the end of the carb, rod to get it to match, then when I start it it will not idle down, it wants to run wide open,I have a manuel and have read every thing I can find on here, I have had the gov.of several times replaced thrust bearing, spring,little spring on the end of the gov. shaft.I am at my wits end. any ideas? thanks.

Jimmy... Sounds like you have the opposite of my problem. It looks like I'm going to have to turn the yoke towards the carb.

I haven't taken the gov apart but I've read the instructions a couple of times and one of the things mentioned was making sure that the large spring was not only hooked in the correct hole on the rock shaft, there are 2, but also that it was facing the right way since apparently the hook can catch on something if it's put in "backwards".

Can you manually operate the gov from the carb side of the engine and get any control over the engine speed? That at least would tell you that the gov is not restricting the throttle movement.

Other than that, I'll defer to the other guys on here because it's clear to me that they know a lot more about this than I do.

good luck,

the spring you mentioned comes with both hooks turned the same way, on my old one the hooks were turned opsite one another but they do not come that way now.

What does your manual tell you about that spring. Mine has a diagram showing the spring and the direction of the hooks. Does yours show 2 holes on the rockshaft lever? My diagram shows an "A" and a "B" and there is a chart showing what hole to use.
