SS 522 revs out of control

I have an older ss 522 blower and it has been acting funny for a while it would high rev some times and now it does it immediately, All the springs are in good condition and connected , when I push the arm back twords the carb the rpms settle right back down so I assume it has some thing to do with the governor . Could some body tell me how to adjust the governor setting , Thanks any info would be appreciated

If it was fine but gradually has been acting up and the rpms go too high the chances are you governor is not out of adjustment.

It could be the throttle shaft is getting gummed up or sticky and does not move as freely as it should. The governors don't slowly go out of adjustment. If no one touched it, it doesn't need to be messed with.

Take the carb off and ensure the throttle is nice and free when rotating. The check your governor linkage to see if it is binding or rubbing anywhere.

Agreed - I would rule out everything else first. Otherwise check the governor adjustment if you want:

I am deathly allergic to shovels!
