Anybody any thoughts, machine was left standing in a garage for 10 years, Obviously wasn’t a starter, after carburettor given a good clean, removed the vanish from Inside. It now starts but the rpm is way to high over 4500 rpm on tac monitor. If you manual close The butterfly with your finger the rpm drops as you would expect and runs fairly sweet. Problem being the governor spring appears to tight and is keeping the butterfly open, tired pushing The steel tab the spring is attached ( left side of carb) to reduce the tension but without much joy. Picture of governor linkage, also tried moving the governor arm towards the carburettor, but again no joy, So any suggestions appreciated.
