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.

You might be able to figure out the order by looking at the B&S parts diagram for the engine?

It doesn't break it down that far.

Re: Troy Bilt pressure washer. Govener help

I cleaned the carb, new lines and filter. Still runs the exact same.

It will only run with the choke partially on.

If the pump is leaking will it effect the way it runs. Cause this pump is leaking. The kit to fix it is $80. But I hate to put that kind of money in it if it's not going to fix it.

If I let off the trigger it dies.

I described it wrong in the video. Choke is to the left, of course it will die. But if I move it to the right to the run position it will also die, unless I force the throttle lever over to the left. Then it will run strong and have good spray power. But I am forcing the govenor so that can't be right.

Re: Troy Bilt pressure washer. Govener help

Do a static governor adjustment.
Your governor is not operating.

Then if the governor don't work see if a spring is broken associated with the governor and throttle area linkages.

Look closely at a IPL for your engine governor throttle controls to locate a (the) spring.
