Hi peeps, I just got the k181 engine rebuilt and put back together, and when it came to setting the throttle linkage back up, I was looking in the manual and I noticed that the guy who I got the horse from had the throtle linkage way off, hence why the gov tab broke off inside the engine. He had the little arm that is suppose to stick at 9 o'cock pointing up at 12 o'clock and the throttle conected to the little arm that is on the disc with the holes. The manual shows that the throttle cable is suppose to be in the holes on the disc. like I have here
My problem is that you see the "bumps" of the spiral shielded cable,( I have 8 bumps sticking past the little tab on cable) that has the tab screwed to it, and that is connected to the arm sticking out at 9 o'clock. How many bumps are to be past the tab so that everything will work right. I have tried everything, and I either get 1/2 throttle, no throttle, or a 3/4 throttle. Do I need to place the cable in another hole lower down on the disc down is increased speed, up is descreased speed. Also the disc with the holes that has the gov spring slips into the little slot it is pointing about 4 o'clock as you can see. Does it need to be alitle higher closer to 3 o'clock or what? I have alreaady adjusted the governor by loosening the bolt and turning the shaft counter clockwise until is stopped, then retighten the bolt. But anyways I need pics. of how your alls is set up. she is almost there but she still dies when under a pretty good load.
