Troy Bilt pressure washer. Govener help
I got a free Troy Bilt pressure washer a couple of years ago. It is an older model with a 9hp Vanguard. It wouldn't run. I did a quick clean on the carb. I got it to start but it ran like crap and very hard to start, and keep running. So I put it in the shed and there it sat.
So last week I drug it out. I seen big clumps of what looked like bread in the fuel filter. I changed the filter and gas. Still ran the same. And after you got it started and washing, if you let off the trigger it dies. Very hard to keep running. So I think there is something wrong with the governer.
So today I'm doing a proper flush of the fuel system and cleaning the carb.
I think I found the problem with the govenor. The control lever that connects to the carb seems a bit tight. Maybe it's normal, but I would think it should be more free.
I've took it apart and cleaned and lubed everything. Still seems tight. I'm wondering if it is put together right.
I can not find a diagram of how it is put together. Just the whole control. You guys have any idea if this is right. From left to right, spring washer going on stud first.
