Ariens 1965 6hp throttle adjustment?

H60-7500-3d
Serial: 17931

Just purchased. Cleaned carb, fresh gas, starts great, two pulls.

My issue is with the throttle. Looks all original. The throttle cable moves the arm on the carb and the long spring seems that it's too streatched or too weak to move the arm to increase rpms.

I've got a video to that I'll try to post.

Thanks for looking.

Those are my least favorite engines to play with....everytime I learn about the governor linkages on those old Tec's ...I forget by the time I see another one.....

I'm sooo close! I'm sure it'll come down to bending an arm or rod or something.. I'm just not sure if I'm missing something or not. I believe all the linkage is there.. idk.

I'll get it, just got to walk away, think about it and research. Lol

Have you adjusted the gov linkage? Typically push the gov to full speed, loosen the screw, setthe throttle plate to wide open, and tighten (check the engine manual). The springs are very weak, and simply counter the gov, so getting the gov setup wrong will give an errant top speed very easily.

Happy thread ending.. I believe it's fixed.

The thin rod linkage (that's intentially bent) was too short and not moving the linkage properly. I stuck a screwdriver in-between the u shaped gap and twisted. This opened the gap and therefore lengthened the rod.

By doing that, the linkage appeared to work property.. and I now have a throttle.

Forgive my second grade discriptions of what I did.. hope it was clear enough.

Thanks to all that posted.

That "U" is the adjustkent point, as per the factory docs, and most of mine have the sides pretty parallel. If you had to move it much, youcould have the wrong spring, or something in the wrong hole, but it reallydoes not mattter if it works correctly.
