It’s locked in place. It doesn’t shoot for WOT, the engine just revs up

Just take off the governor if it's not working. That's usually my route to take.

If it is locked, your governor is out of whack.  Loosen it and turn the post the other way and re-tighten. It should rock back and forth.

I can move it back and forth fine by hand, but even if I have to hold it in place, it tries to take off if there isn’t a load on the engine

Don’t think so. The carb is way out of adjustment. It was out of adjustment on my d 11 horse. I think it’s too rich for this 10

I suppose, but running rich shouldn't make it rev up like that. Maybe it does have a bad air like after the intake somewhere? I'd spray carb clean all over the carb and intake while it was running and see if it bogs down. If it does you know there's an air leak.

Yeah. I think I have a spare gasket somewhere. A gasket leak would make sense. If it’s running rich and more air is getting introduced it would be like revving it up. It would equal out the fuel mixture and everything too. Hmmmm...

Actually you wait for er to speed up when you do that, cause you're adding extra fuel haha
