Governor start-up question

Super a started up earlier then died like it ran out of fuel. I pulled the carb went through it again, put it back on, and nothing. Turns over but won't fire. I checked the govenor rod and it was almost unresponsive with the throttle. I removed the gov to carb rod and the linkage from the gov had almost zero resistance like there was no spring, very sloppy. I'm guessing the spring is either broke or so worn it's affecting the ability too start. Does that sound right? Looks like a pain I the rear to remove cover, is it simple to get to once cover is off?

So if you set the throttle wide open does the carb linkage move to wide open?? If it does ok and then if you move the throttle to idle does it also move the carb linkage to idle?? If it does then you don't have a problem and not likely to be your no start problem

When I open the throttle it will open the carb but when I try to bring it back to idle the carb rod doesn't move, I have to manually move the rod. I have the bend of the rod going to the carb against the block, could I have the rod the wrong way and restricting movement? But that doesn't explain how it ran fine then all of a sudden died... unless that spurring let loose a little more... any ideas

Sometimes the rod moved a little and then it didn't move at all, I had to play with the throttle back and forth for it to move

Did you check for spark? Is it a battery ignition? If so is it getting power? Is the distributor turning?

Today's Featured Article - Product Review - by Staff. When we finally checked out the 3000 PSI North Star, the whole story chaned. This unit was equipped with an 11 HP Honda engine with fuel shutoff, adjustable flow and optional syphon degreaser dispenser. It didn't have a pressure release or electric start to facilitate easy starting but according to the instructions, simply pulling on the trigger while cranking was sufficient. This method of starting proved more than adequate and kept the cost down on the unit. It had all the important ... [Read Article]
