JD L110 Tractor (Kohler 17.5) Governor
I have a JD L110 rider mower with 17.5 HP Kohler engine.
The engine runs, but the throttle cycles between high and low throttle. (Governor??)
The throttle mechanism is moving on its own.
Mice formed a nest under engine cover over the winter.
The wire going to the igniton module (non contacting sensor on fly wheel) was chewed thru. I replaced this wire. The caburetor was slightly corroded. I removed and cleaned the carb, added Seafoam to a the gas. Changed air and gas filter, and spark plug. It appears that gas is flowing to the carb. The engine still run as described above.
When the non contacting electronic module connector is disconnected, the engine does start, and runs the same as described above.
What should happed if this electronic module (JD# m133019) is disconnected on a normlly operting engine?
Any other suggestions?
