Idle Problem Honda Mower Buffalo HRU196 GXV160 OHV
Hi folks
I have a Honda mower with a GXV160 OHV 5.5 Hp engine that will not idle. It appears to run ok at full revs, but when I bring it back to idle the motor slows them speed up again over and over at if the engine is running to slow and the governor is compensating for the low revs.
The governor spring and lever are connected at the top of the governor lever to the carby and the lower spring on the governor lever is still connected to another lever attached to the throttle cable.
This problem started after I removed the blade disk to replace the blades.
Any ideas or is it a trip to the dealer

Thanks restrorob
All fixed now. Thanks for your guidance. My local Honda dealer was not that forth coming with info on what could be wrong. I guess he may have been thinking of the lining of his pocket.
