Hello Everyone,

My D17 will only produce power at low RPM. At high RPMs it powers out. I have cleaned the carb. and tuned the engine. It sounds like a governor problem ie. fuel restriction, but why does it only happen at high revs? I would appreciate any assistance in this.

Thank you,

Thank you everyone for your assistance!
It turns out that the throttle plate was installed backwards. :)

Had same problem. try taking inspection cover off gov and check that the weights havent flown apart their made of aluminium and mesh real good with the timing gears causing more damage.if this is your problem I hope you have better luck than i did and be able to catch it before more damage.

Check timing, air intake or exhaust restrictions. Also, make sure you gapped the points correctly. Does this happen even when engine is cold or does it run for 10-15 minutes before you see the problem? When it does happen, quickly disconnect the fuel line at the carb and observe the flow--which should be pretty steady. If not, then you have a fuel restriction in the tank or in the filter.

I'm no governor expert but that may be the problem. You can try setting the throttle say, at about 800 RPM and then start out in high range, 4th gear. Have someone on the ground observe the governor linkage to see if it adds fuel to take the load on the engine. At least you'll know if the governor is trying to work.

Hope you get it straight.
