Loss of power
I wired the gun trigger open, started it up at min pressure and cranked it up to max pressure. It has a lever action throttle and I usually run it wide open and adjust pressure (almost always max). I think it has a governor but at WOT it doesn't look like it can affect the throttle? At first I thought it was the pump,then I thought governor,but now I'm thinking loss of power at the motor..I have misplaced my little compression test kit. But when I find it,what pressure should it make? What pressure should make me pull the head? The unit is 10 years old but I doubt it has much over 100 hours of work. It was always really hard to pull start (no electric starter) and now I'm thinking I can pull it a little easier now? Thanks for your help.
