Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.

Governor adjustment

To adjust the governor:


Remove the fuel tank by following the procedures
described in the fuel tank section of this chapter.


Loosen the governor arm nut but do not remove the
nut completely.


Pry open the governor arm crimp with a flat head
screwdriver. See Figure 4.47.


Using pliers, grab the flat section at the top of the
governor shaft and rotate it in a counter clockwise
direction as far as it can go.


Push the governor arm to the right (the spring should
pull it in this direction).

NOTE: Rotating the shaft counter clockwise will ensure

the governor cup is pressed all the way down on
the governor gear flyweights. Pushing on the gov-
ernor arm to the right ensures the throttle is wide
open against the throttle stop.


Re-tighten the governor arm nut to crimp the governor arm onto the governor shaft.


Install the fuel tank.


Test run the engine in a safe area. Set the engine RPM’s to 3500 + 100.

How to Set the Governor Setting on a Kohler Engine

Your Kohler engine's governor regulates, or governs, the speed at which your engine operates. It uses a mechanical centrifugal flyweight system that holds the engine speed constant even when load conditions change. You can set the settings on your Kohler engine governor in a few simple steps.

Step 1

Locate your governor. It is located on the left side of the engine as you face it if mounted on your vehicle. This side is also called the "starter side" because your engine's starter system connects here.

Step 2

Verify the throttle linkage rod is connected to the lever on your governor. You can identify the throttle linkage rod by tracing its length; the other end will be connected to the throttle lever on the carburetor.

Step 3

Loosen the nut that holds the governor lever to the cross shaft with your hex wrench. The cross shaft is located directly above the governor spring, which is the only spring on your governor so it's easy to identify.

Step 4

Push the governor lever towards the carburetor. This will cause the throttle to open wide. Hold the governor lever in this position.

Step 5

Insert your nail into the hole that has opened up in the cross shaft. Rotate the nail counterclockwise until it will not turn any further.

Step 6

Remove the nail. Pull the governor lever back towards the governor. Tighten the hex nut to a setting of 60 inch-pounds using your hex wrench.

Adjust the governor's sensitivity by turning the hex bolt on the right-side of your governor spring. To increase sensitivity, turn the bolt to the right, which will move the spring closer to the cross shaft; turn the bolt to the left to decrease sensitivity.



  • Increase your governor's sensitivity if you feel the engine is not maintaining speed properly.

OK, the manual states "With Engine stopped, advance the engine speed control hand lever to create tension on the governor spring. Adjust length of governor-to-carburetor control rod so that the rod slides freely into the throttle lever when the throttle is wide open--then lengthen the control rod by one turn to place spring load on the throttle lever".

Advance the engine speed control lever to half way then make the control rod adjustment.

I advanced the speed control lever to full adv on the quadrant. So, if I'm reading correctly,
you adv the speed control lever just till you get spring tension?? And then set the adjustment??
THAT may be my problem :oops:[/quote]

The other problem you may have is the governer buffer screw adjustment, this part is a spring that pushes against the throttle lever inside the governer, if this is set too tight (turned in too far) it will cause the engine to not return to idle also.

This adjustment is the screw and jam nut in the horizontal position down next to the fan (the manual also describes how to adjust this also) DO THIS ADJUSTMENT WITH THE ENGINE OFF!!! this is way to close to the fan with the engine running.

I would back it out one turn and see if the engine will idle.This adjiustment screw takes the "hunt" or eratic up and down of engine speed when you suddenly change engine speeds.

If it will then idle then that is the problem. To see if the buffer is adjusted right suddenly go from idle to full throttle the governor at MOST should "hunt " one time then settle down to desired engine speed. Adjusting this screw will decrease or increase the hunt in the governer. Lock down the jam nut when you are done.

Like most things this will be easier the next time, but keep us posted on your progress

Experiance is knowing what NOT to do the next time.......

My wife Olya came from a corporate party very late at about 4 o'clock in the morning, I tried to call, but she did not answer and I was very worried. She was just no, drunken, taking off her fur coat, I noticed fresh stains on the lining, very similar to traces of sperm.

This interested me, but I could not get anything from her, dragging her to bed, I checked her vagina, thrusting my fingers, I realized that she was recently fucked, she. Was full of sperm, it turned me on and angered me at the same time, we have an agreement that we are fucking we are only together.


We play for fun. Because without interest it will be boring. Do you agree.
