I asked a few days ago about my 77 surging all the time. Today I took time to mess with it, as suggested, I lengthened the rod to the carb. It took 6 full turns before it settled down and ran good. It's blocked in the shed by the 880 that I'm waiting on parts for so I couldn't get it out and drive it, but it was getting warmed up pretty good, so I think I got it. What I don't understand, it ran fine for years.When it started surging, I adjusted the screw on the front of the governor housing and cured it for a while and then it started surging again. Lengthening the rod cured it. How did it run good before and now the only cure was to lengthen the rod to the carb that had been in the same position for years? I'm cornfused. Thanks for the help, Chris

Did you happen to remove the carb in that time.

Or did you rebuild the carb and replace the throttle shaft? They are not all equal and sometimes need to be readjusted as you did.
One of the things governors don't like linkages that are wore. A common repair is to weld the holes shut and drill them back to
size. Also using a torch build up the rods were they connect with the arms. Weld and hand file and weld and hand file. Best done on
a winter day when things are slow.

If you haven't changed anything externally, I would be thinking about the inside of the governor or the bushing in the block that holds the governor. There are wear points that will change the positioning of the governor rod.

Haven't had the carb off and the linkage all seems to be nice and snug. Maybe someday when I'm in the mood I'll take the governor out and check it for wear. Thanks, Chris
