i have an 840 lp. it seems like the max throttle position is slow. can the governor be adjusted?is it safe to do so? if so, its an internal governor it think? i can pull on the throttle linkage and the engine will rev higher,but it won"t stay. it seems like it would help with the power. when i pull my 7"6" offset disc it tends to bogg down easier than i thought it would. of course i don"t know what the recommended size tractor for pulling it is. it seems like more rpms would help. any advice would be helpful, thanks.

If the governor is responsive, controls rpm within a narrow range, the rod between the arm and the carb should not be touched. increasing the spring tension will bring the rpm up , the spring may be aged and need replaced. If the governor is lazy, doesn't resopond to load the rod may need adjusted, you should get the method from the service manual and follow it then make minor touch up from there as needed if the governor "surges". hope this helps
