TheKokojoe: What does the other set screw do. Is it for low speed adjustment, it looks like it does nothing?
Daniel Lawler: Correct, as per manual max governed rpm is actually 3100rpm +/- 150rpm.
A. Miller: The engine is capable of 4kw (5.5 hp), but like almost all small engines (and many diesel engines, especially in caterpillar equipment) it is governed down to reduce wear and tear on the engine. having made your adjustment, you get more power now, but you will have it for less time, if that makes sense.
matt bryant: are you located in Sydney?
Ryan SHANNON: great video...got to the point and drew on real world knowledge. legend :)
Insidetech101: Adjusting the governor like you did , puts some more pressure on internal gov, bearing. However will take years to whear down. Just FYI.
Phillip James: thanks very much
Benjamin Royster: Skip to 3:00 to get what you came for
lawnboy1100: I would like to thank you for the vid. I will get me a guage now. Many mowers come in and i adjust but just by ear.
RAiSNiX1: Good vid mate ! I was not a mechanically minded as you and I just had the repair shop do it for me but I think Ill have a go next time !
ClassicTVMan1981X: The engine may develop its rated HP at 3600 RPM, but the governed speed by law for a 21" deck mower is 3456 or less RPM. In most cases the engine should be running in the 30/3200 RPM neighborhood when on high speed.
