Suzuki Govornor Inards

I have never seen a picture of the mythical suzuki mechanical governor system so since I had my motor apart I thought I would post a picture just to document it so that it may prove helpful to someone in the future.

Two 'wings' (there is another wing 180 degrees from the one pictured) open up due to centripetal acceleration and force the collar they are holding down towards the connecting rod and it pushes the metal rod that is also in the picture turning it a little. The metal rod goes directly to the exterior and hooks up to a large arm and then the governor spring......looks like zero wear on the parts on this machine:

Re: Suzuki Govornor Inards

the metal rod wears out but not much else does on this marvel of desighn and build quality.i had to tear one open to replace the gov rod but this engine had 20,000 hrs on it. ran fine after the fix. but i retired it to back up status. engine was in service from 1990-2011. this was constant commercial use. never any other repairs except carbs

Re: Suzuki Govornor Inards

Which rod you talking about Dan? The bottom or upper right?

Re: Suzuki Govornor Inards

the rod that goes tru the block and connects to the external linkage. it pushes the inner parts via a fork -like a trans shift fork. the rod wore down and could not engage the fork right . i tore my hair out trying to find the cause of the gov issues on this motor. finally i decided to tear it apart and found the worn down end on the gov linkage rod.

Re: Suzuki Govornor Inards

This is MOST helpful I was ordering parts for 2 rebuilds and knowing the actual internal parts are unworn ... Leads me to believe my governor rod too is worn. Thanks Mantas. Also Lawnboy Dan, I know the gov rod that goes through the block has a seal can the seal and rod be replaced with out opening up the case?

Re: Suzuki Govornor Inards

Mantas have you figured out the surge issue yet if the internals are unworn?

Re: Suzuki Govornor Inards

no the seal and rod can only be replaced after spliting open the case. it wasnt a hard job at all. before you condem the gov rod make shure you check the carb throttle shaft for wear. this is common on these and causes the engine to race mimicking a gov issue. on the inside of these engines everything is so robust you then know why these engines have such a long life. the crankcase seals are huge! i doubt they could ever fail to seal.

Carb throttle shaft replaceable or has to be whole carb?

Re: Suzuki Govornor Inards

As promised, I grabbed my camera to get a better picture of the gov system. Instead I just made a short video:

I don't know about that. My upper seal is compromised upon visual inspection and I believe it caused the rusted bearing in my other thread. I don't know if the bearing was giving off heat and roasted the seal or if the seal let humidity/moisture in and rusted the bearing.....either way I'm changing both the seal and the bearing. For an extra $8 I'm changing the bottom seal as well.

The engine was only used at the guys house BUT had some issues. Gov spring had a bend that seemed like an accident or someone didn't take it off properly, carb was gross, gas tank/fuel line were gross and a bad seal must have been letting air into the block. The key was partially sheered and that had to mess up the timing:


It was a mild surge and I don't think there is much wear in the engine or carb so I would assume she will run strong. My other 2cycle Toro surged much worse before I cleaned the jets.

I'm really happy I decided to split the block because without that notion I wouldn't have discovered the key, bearing, and seal issues.

Re: Suzuki Govornor Inards

it takes a really hard strike to damage the keys on these. suzuki uses a hard steel key unlike most. good luck finding another key. they are hard to come by. i had to special order the last one i needed from toro. gtp-there used to be a kit to replace the worn throttle shaft on the mikuni carb. if its no longer sold -then sadly you must replace the whole carb! the mikuni carb is the bane of existance of many and its too bad more didnt use the far more reliable walbro carb. yes the gov spring on the mikuni is fragile and care must be used when removing and installing it. a pair of tweezers is the way to go.

There seems to be many keys on eBay for part #81-2370. I picked one up from a guy in-state for $2.75 shipped.

To re-open an old thread, whats in the kit? A new throttle shaft? Does just the shaft wear and not the carb body?

Both my Suzukis leak around the shaft--my ex-commercial will overspeed big time when sprayed with carb cleaner so you know it's leaking good!

Re: Suzuki Govornor Inards

yes the throttle shaft can be replaced but the carb body can and will wear to the point it will stick and suck air. this is one of the weak points of the mikuni carb. the trottle shaft is brass and the carb body alum. both wear fairly fast
