Governor adjustment required after carburetor replacement ?

I replaced the carburetor on a 7 hp Tecumseh Snow King (631954 HOOAI brand from Amazon). Full throttle seems to be much faster that before the replacement (when I could get it to run). I thought I replaced the linkages correctly.

This is in the engine off position. Top link goes to the carburetor. Bottom goes to the governor arm where it is inserted in the hole closest to the pivot.

I had the same thing with a blower I just sold. It was a 5HP and the carb was labeled for 5-7 HP. The original carb was faulty, so I put the same carb on the OP describes, and it seems to have been running fast. The guy who bought it didn't seem to care, he just lowered the throttle.

Tell ya what, it didn't have that lean pop on idle, and it was easier to start. I think it may be jetted a little big, making it richer, and running a little faster on top. This is a WAG, but I didn't want to spend what little brain power I had left focusing on it.

You can open and edit the title in your original post, changing "gubbamint" to "gubbanah". It will make thread-searching easier for future readers.

New Husqy ST227P for 2014-15 snow season.

I love my snowblower. Every beat of it's little heart is one mine won't have to take.

Donnyboy73 to the rescue !

Well, the serious cold snap we had in SE MI finally broke yesterday and I could get back in the garage and work on that blower again. First the the governor linkage at the throttle is in the wrong hole. It should be in the TOP hole.



Second, and most important, the "overspeed" issue was due to the governor arm (at the other end of that linkage) being out of adjustment. I'll let him explain it.


Yes, his example engine is a 10 hp Snow King and mine is a 7 hp Snow King. Basically the same governor linkage. As he noted, overspeed kills many Tecumseh Snow King engines. The rods just can not take it. If you want just a bit more engine speed, use the WOT screw on the throttle.

There is a Speed Adjustment Screw on the Front of the linkage. Once Your Linkage is in the Correct Hole, Adjust That Screw to get the correct Speed. Leave the Governor Alone.
