Hi Sniper!

Sorry, but I can't picture what you are saying. It has no governor shaft? I've never seen a rod that pushes down on a gear to speed up an engine. Is there a way you could post a link to a pic?

Sounds like you have a governed idle engine but i've never seen one on a 3 1/2 engine. Post back with the model and spec numbers of the engine.

Yes, every factory, small engine will have a governor system. Most, as well as yours, has an internal governor set-up. The clip you're referring to is a press fit utilizing a "spring-tab" arrangement for retainment on the governor shaft (which goes into the engine's sump). This governor is adjustable by way of the governor arm (attached by way of the screw you mentioned) to the clip. Loosen (slightly) the screw, hold the throttle wide open, rotate the clip counterclockwise, tighten the screw. Note that this usually never changes unless the operator messes with such and I would say the carb is not OK.
