Wisconsin throttle Question

I have a Wisconsin TFD, I think itís a 22 horse Iím not sure,
Anyway,
Is it normal for the throttle to have increased resistance as you Increase the speed of the engine?. Or is something not right?

Thanks

The TFD engine is rated at 13.3 HP at 2600 RPM.

It is not normal for throttle resistance to increase. I assume you are operating the throttle via the throttle handle/cable. Disconnect the cable and determine if resistance is in the throttle shaft on the carburetor or in the cable. Possibly cleaning can remedy the problem.

Does you engine have all the original control features? Does it have a handle for governor control?

I think in this case the governor is conneted to the throttle with a single cable..
The motor was given to me, Nonworking ...
I'm not sure if it is even hooked up right...
Should there be a solid link between the governor and throttle or A spring of sorts or
nothing at all ?
sorry if I sound duuuuuumb..But this is totaly new to me,I'm sort of learning as I go..

Thanks

When I have time I will scan additional pages from the manual and email them to you.
