HELP!! 45 Governor

Report to Moderator

I purchased a 45 and is over-revving, put a tach on and it reads about 2500 rpm's. I took the govenor out and had 3 different people tell me it looks fine. I replaced the spring inside and even switched carburator's just to make sure it wasn't the problem. I have adjusted the linkage every way possible.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Or I well have to take it into the AC dealer and I have a hard time justifying $52.00/hr.
Any HELP would be appreciated.
Thanks RJB

The govenor on most gas engines is a simple device. The spring serves to open the butterfly and the rotating weights close it.The engine RPM is controlled by the pressure the spring pulling against the centrifugal force of the spining weights. If the engine rpm lowers the spring opens the butterfly, and if it raises the fly weights overcome the spring and close the butterfly. If there is no problems with the govenor rotating assembly,then your problem is that the spring is to strong or being pulled to far by the throttle lever.

Today's Featured Article - It Can't Be Done! - A Tractor Story - by Neil Campbell. I'll never forget the time back when I was a boy baling hay on our Farm in Big Rapid, Michigan. The most memorable event that took place was a trip up the steepest incline on the farm pulling an old New-Idea baler with a pony-motor for power and a haywagon. I had just talked my Dad into buying an old John Deere B with 6-speeds ahead and I was real proud of it, except it was a little smaller than the Case tractor that we normally ... [Read Article]
