Default Good job my workshop floor is strong

First run of my 'D' today.

She started easily enough but she 'ran away' and I had a hard time controlling her. The governor was trying to close the throttle plate (butterfly) but I don't think this is closing fully and reducing airflow.

The only way to stop the engine is to close the fuel regulator to the 'stop' position and hold the air valve down.

I'm going to remove the carburettor tomorrow and have a look around, it's had a new gasket fitted.

I think the engine is getting to much air, what do folks here think?

Spec 18.

I had similar problems with fast running as you are having, I ended up with another carb.

Try adjusting the length of the vertical throttle rod to close the butterfly further, a little trial and error needed but it should work. Also make sure that the governor pushrod is fully in before starting the engine, again adjusment of the rod should correct this if it isn't.

So, after a few runs when my D tried to start a small earthquake and with the help of folk here I've slowed her down and now she runs quite nicely

Garden crank-up

And with the Stuart pump attached.

Stuart type AF2E12
