Should the spring on the governor be resisting the throttle handle pull through the entirety of the quadrant? If this is the case, my spring does not have any tension on it until I have fully opened the throttle on the carb.
A functioning governor with linkages attached properly should fight you as you open the throttle through the entire swing. The more you open the harder it should try to pull you back.
That said, hook everything up correctly. Now open the throttle by hand. You should feel good resistance from the governor trying to pull it back closed.
Preload is the amount of static force applied. In the springs case. With the governor just sitting there on the bench or installed with the throttle closed, the spring should be neither stretched nor compressed. This post was edited by JCinKY at 09:15:04 09/19/13.
