locate the linkage from the throttle on the carburetor that extends to the arm comming off of the engine. This arm is the governor arm and is attached to the governor shaft coming out of the engine block with a mtg screw or clamp.
To adjust the governor, loosen the screw holding the arm or clamp, push on the arm in the direction that opens the throttle on the carburetor to the full open (fast) position and hold it there. Now turn the governor shaft or clamp in the same direction that opens the throttle until it stops. Tighten the retaining screw or clamp down. Thats all there is to it.
JUST REMEMBER THAT THE GOVERNOR SHAFT SHOULD ALWAYS BE TURNED IN THE SAME DIRECTION THE GOVERNOR ARM TURNS TO OPEN THE THROTTLE WIDE OPEN.
The governor shaft must be turned until it stops to make sure that it is resting on the governor spool on internal governors. Air vane governors have no adjustment other then the spring tension.
