Custom 10e engine races out of control

Post  Brit401 on October 10th 2010, 5:50 am

I have a custom 10e that has been surging all summer, It is now started to race out of control. It apears to be the internal workings of the govenor. Are parts still available for this tecumseh motor? Service manual? How deep into the engine do you have to go to replace the govenor parts? Is there a mail order house for the parts?
Thank you

i had the same issue just the other day. i put a new fuel pump and fuel lines on in prep for the winter. try checking to make sure the choke cable is not resting on the throt pivit on the top of the carb. then i had to reset the carb and dial her in just right. could most def be something worse but try to keep it simple first.

Thank you for your reply, The problem has been corrected with a can of gunk and WD40. Once I cleaned up the linkages and moved them back and forth a few times they freed up and corrected the problem. A slight carb adjustment and the tractor is running great.
