ADJUSTMENT



  1. Connect a tachometer to the engine. Adjust the carburetor to obtain a smooth idle at 600 rpm. Shut off the engine.
  2.  
  3. Check the throttle linkage to be sure that the throttle plate can be set at the wide open position. Make sure that the throttle and governor linkage are operating freely.
  4.  
  5. Place the carburetor in the wide open throttle position and pull the governor handle all the way out.
  6.  
  7. Adjust the governor-to-bell crank rod so that the linkage will hold the carburetor in the wide open throttle position.
  8.  
  9. Close the governor control and start the engine.
  10.  
  11. Pull the governor control out to the last notch and adjust the cable length at the adjusting yoke so that the engine will run at 2,600 rpm.
  12.  
  13. Close the governor control and make sure that the engine returns to the 600 rpm idle speed. Check that the linkage operates freely. If the engine does not return to the 600 rpm figure, loosen the locknut, at the dash panel, which retains the governor hand control to the rod, and back off the handle until the idle speed adjusting screw rests on the stop. Tighten the locknut.
