Hi,
The linkage between the governor and the carburetor should not have looseness at the connections, or the support ahead of the carb. Looseness or wear makes the governor work slower.

It is loose where the cotter key is. There was originally a pin there.
It needs the pin put in that Don posted above. :)

I adjusted it more inline with the scheme you sent me, and my results were much better to the point I was successfully able to cut a couple of acres. I replaced the jiggly cotter pin with a 3/16, but I do need the actual clevis pin. Someone mentioned undoing the linkage and checking for play that way. I did, and I think I was way off the mark in my original assessment. I’ll attach a video, but it looks like where the spring attaches at the bottom is hogged out, and then there’s play in the shaft itself on the governor side. Either way, I was able to get some solid work done so I’m not scrambling now.

If you fix those two problems, you'll notice a lot of difference.

There is a LOT of governor to rockshaft play shown in your video. Lurker Carl wrote up a really good How-To on a fix for this.

I just did this fix with my tractor and found the woodruff key was not engaging the governor well. I didn't end up using the epoxy as shown, but used it to raise up the height of the woodruff key.

After fixing, the results are amazing! I pulled my 900lb roller (rolling my yard) idling around in third gear up and down the small hills. The governor was VERY quick to respond to the changes in the load.
