    Itís a good habit to check the governor setting and make sure itís adjusted correctly when reinstalling a carb. If it has the slightest play or gap where it makes contact internally it will surge as you described. That is if your positive the carb is in perfect condition. Sometimes a soaking of the disassembled carb overnight in a cleaner works miracles.

    If its a fixed jet type sounds like the low speed jet is too small. Depends on when it surges idle or high end.
