Adjust Governon B & S Vanguard Model 303777
Just bought a used Simplicity riding mower. Governor has been "tinkered" with. I have worked on it some and had it working pretty well. That is until I put the mowing deck back on it. When I started the mower this appears to overload the governor setting that worked OK with no load on the mower, when test driving it. Still ran OK, but the governor did not hold the RPM up enough to mow with it.
The governor spring had been bent some and attached at the wrong place. I believe this is the problem, (probably too much tension on it).
Any adjustment advise would be welcomed. Motor is type: 1111-A1 5526, Code is: 907221. It is 16 HP and motor runs good other than the governor setting.
