    No, I don't have a diagram, but remember the SOLID link goes from GOVERNOR arm to THROTTLE SHAFT. The SPRING goes to THROTTLE CONTROL ARM. Spring tension pulls engine INTO fuel. Governor pulls it OUT. Engine speed is determined by tension on spring (YOU giving it more gas) and the GOVERNOR trying to pull it out. Resulting balance between those two forces results in engine RPM. Hope it helps some.

    Tecumseh had way too many variations to give you a decent response without an engine/spec. number........

    I have seen you asking for help on another site, I am not sure if this is the one you are looking for because there are so many, has many have already told you, but you should be able to work it out from this one.
