I am running an 11 horse Tecumseh engine on my blower and I notice that it is not
performing as well as some of the smaller blowers in the neighborhood.
I think its being governed a little to slow. How do you adjust the governed speed?????
Being older it would be a bad idea to bypass the governor unless you
want to put the piston out the top of the head. Also, over revving an
old long stroke causes the piston to tilt and making your cylinder bore
egg shaped. Try changing the gear ratio by putting a larger pulley off
the engine or a smaller one on the blower. Of course you may loose
torque doing this.
Check your manual and verify the full speed RPM's are correct. If they
are indeed under, then speed it up to specs.
