Did you loosen the governor arm on the shaft? If not, it shouldn't be affected. Did you put the internal governor back in place? You generally set the throttle wide open, loosen the governor shaft clamp bolt, turn the shaft clockwise until it stops, then tighten the clamp bolt. This sets the governor.

hey cheese, i did have to take the governor arm off to get the oil pan off and did not move anything on the internal part of the governor. i notched the governor shaft with the governor arm and put it back like it was when i took it off. will the internal governor have to be re sit before putting the pan back on? if so how do you make sure it`s sit right before the pan is put back on? thanks fore the help
