It's toast. The piston, the ring, and the cylinder are galled and scored. I doubt you have hardly any compression at all.

The other sizes are to help eliminate crankshaft end play if you have excess. I pretty much always go with the standard.

Lock nuts would be best for that kind of repair but the ideal thing would be to run it by a shop with a welder and let them weld it back down. It would probably be less than $50.

The surging is not because of the governor, it's because of the carburetor. It needs cleaning.

Usually you can spray the shaft in the throat of the carb and on top and work it by hand and it will free up. You can do that with the carb on the mower.

Not true. This is an engine with an internal governor, not an air vane. Even if it had an air vane, it is still very possible to overspeed and blow it up.

The throttle shaft should move (rotate)....

When you check for spark, the spark plug must be grounded or it will not spark. Make sure the spark plug is touching a metal part of the engine housing/block and then re-check.

Make sure the choke isn't sticking shut, make sure the oil isn't thinned with gas, and then take the carb apart and pay attention to the needle area. Probably some junk in the needle inlet area at...

Personally I'd toss it but if you have time to burn and want to, it could pan out. The carb will probably need new diaphragms, etc... might be best to replace it. Surely the lines too, the fuel...

Many carburetors has a drain valve on the bottom of the bowl. Usually it's a phillips head screw with a spring on it or a 10mm bolt going in at an angle. Take that out to let the carburetor drain,...

As much as I hate to give props to chinese anything but I have to sya I've had pretty good success with their cheap carburetors. OEMs are made in china too much, maybe most of the time.

Both axle keys MUST be present or the mower won't even attempt to move. The side without a key will just spin the axle in the bore of the rim. A lot of times the key sticks in the rim and falls out...

I would use it without worry. If you have enough contaminates in your oil to clog a pleated automotive filter, your engine is probably toast anyway. That much contamination in 1.5 to 2 quarts of oil...

If that unit has the red engine GX series honda, it's a dang good one and probably paired with a good pump. If it's surging in unison with the pressure pulsing, then its probably an unloader valve...

It almost sounds like it's not getting fuel delivered to the carb bowl fast enough if it runs fine for a bit and then starts surging. I'd pull the bowl and check fuel flow through the inlet needle. ...
