Hi every one my 876 wheelhorse with the k181s 8hp engine. She will start up at just the slightest bump of the key, andwill idle and rev noprob. But she will shut down once it is under a load. She throws out a pretty good lot of bluesmoke at times when you first start her, and even some while starting to get under load. So I thought it may have been the carb. I cleaned it and put back together, but still does the same thing. What do you all think it is? I then thought that maybe that the piston and rings may be worn so I took the head off and checked for slop on top of the piston, no movement an walls are as smooth as silk. I then thought well maybe the govenor may need to be adjusted so I tried to set it. But the little shaft that the gov link is rideing on you know the one that you have to loosen the bolt in order to move the gov. backwards making sure the carb. is wide open. Well anyway it does not stop or tighten it only spins and spins or turns and turns which everway you want to look at it. So my last thought is the fuel pump. What do you all think I now have the engine setting here off the frame waiting on parts to arrive for a rebuild. Here is what everything looked like then after cleaning best I could Here is the Gov Here is the carb Here is were it is ATM waiting on parts
