I have a 17 hp vanguard how to you increase the engine RPM's
does it run bad? too slow? i would think you should adjust the high speed screw on the carb.
Yes it running slow It's only 2 yrs old it has no high limit screw on it I believe it is preset at factory
im not sure, but i would think that the governor should be adjusted somehow.
I need the same info. I think the carb needs adjusting some how, But I cant find any help on this subject.
I'll look for that info on my Briggs CD rom repair manual, I'll see if there is any related info in it. If I do find it I'll let you guys know.
No problem, all I need is the model numbers off your engine!
Daves,do not increase the RPM based on sound,the Briggs Vanguards are very smooth and quiet. I thought mine was set to slow also,but i checked it with a handheld RPM tachometer,the RPMS were perfect,the engine just sounds like its loafing along,where as my Kohler at the same speed sounds like its coming unglued.
Make sure the throttle is moving all the way open. If the RPM's are correct (and they probably are) any attempt to gain RPM's via the governor will cause a lean situation with no high speed screw.....Mike
