    Hi there evryone need some help?Have a 15hp kawasaki i replaced the governor shaft seal,and put it all back together and the engine was screaming
    revving high with throttle in the lowest position.I finally got it not to race
    after playing with the governor for 4 hours but now when i engage the blades
    it stalls governor not kicking in.Any help on how to adjust this thing would be awesome right about now.Thanks John:confused:

    Hey there Restrorob i did that adjustment like you said.But I can not seem to
    get it right it is better but when i engage the blades it wants to stall,i have
    to engage them really really slow for it not to stall.I also replaced the long
    governor rod spring because the old one was broken.They sold me one for a
    17hp said it was the same.I checked both and it does look the same.any ideas
    would be helpful Thanks John:)
