Governor linkage

Hey guys,

I had to tear into the motor on my 2008ish Storm 2410 and now putting it back together I can't seem to get the governor linkage right. From all the exploded diagrams I can see I've got everything hooked up right, but so far as I can tell the governor is actually closing the throttle as the engine revs up.

If anyone has any thoughts that'd be great. Some pics of the correct setup (or an actual tech manual) would be much appreciated as well.

Thanks everyone!


Anthony

Check youtube for Honda or clone carb videos. They should be about the same.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

That looks correct. I've worked on quite a few of those and that is the correct orientation of the linkage.

Everything I found agreed as well, but I could never get it to run right. I have since switched to the Predator 6.5hp from Harbor Freight and won't be looking back. It's an infinitely nicer engine than the original...AND it runs correctly.

Were you having surging issues?

I just started up my Father's 2410 yesterday. Ran some seafoam mixed with some fuel. It is practically new, used for only a couple of hours, and then it sat for awhile before my Dad bought it from a friend of mine.

It surges when the choke is fully open, but if I adjust the choke somewhere between closed and open, the engine will smooth out and run beautifully. But it surges terribly when the choke is fully open.

The carb may need cleaning. I know it had some gas in it when he bought it, after it sat for awhile.....but it started up on the first or second pull when we went to go look at it before picking it up (with the old gas that was still in it!)

You carb needs to be cleaned. It plugged up and casing the motor to run lean. And choking it, like your doing confirms this. You can try just taking the float bowl off and screw out the jet and clean that. And also spray some carb cleaner up the tube, with the jet out.

I will try this next.

I watched a video on YouTube with another surging 2410. Their fix was to use a carb jet cleaning "drill bit" for the idle jet.

I think another one of the posters used one of the wires from a wire brush to clean the jet out as well. I have done that before with a small pin for a Craftsman mower a few weeks ago.

Get a set of welding tip cleaners. They have some sidges in the wire that clean good and will open up the jet a little. Those carbs a jetted real lean and opening up the jet makes them run way better.
