My 1953 Super C has been unused the past year (due to a job far from home). My meadow grass is of course now taller than me. Home for awhile and intending to do some bushogging I did some basic maintenance (oil, lube, gas, battery, etc.) on it then fired up the Super C. It started up at a very full throttle even though the throttle lever was back. Moving the throttle had no effect. In short, the engine is racing. I suspect something is wrong with the governor. The linkage from the throttle looks okay. I know very little about the governor concept. I see what looks like an adjusting nut and note there is a little wire seal on it. Should I break the seal and turn that nut? Someone told me there are magnets that spin inside the case. How long do those magnets last? Do I have a simple adjustment problem or is this a disassemble and repair issue? For the 20 years I have owned this unit I have had no major problems beyond flaking of the tire sidewalls.
