I have a 14.5 B&S mounted on a John Deere LX 176.The governors will not level out.I am going to check & set valve clearance intake- .005,exh.-.007
They have never been set that I know of. All suggestions will be appreciated!

OK I adjusted valves then removed carborator from engine & blew it out with air replaced carb. on engine. The engine is working fine now including the governor.OH!
The valves were really off the true setting.It took about 1 hour to do this. I was not in a hurry.

I am new here and enjoying what I see and read.

Thanks to All!

Hey, Doorkeeper, welcome to MLMF. Glad you like what you see. You sure didn't get any help on your project, but you figured it out anyway. Do hang around and maybe you can help someone looking for some help adjusting their valves or other projects. Enjoy your visits!
