I looked at the governor today. It seemed like it moved freely until I compared it to another one. The old didn't move the last little bit where the outside plates pull away from the inside. Also there wasn't a pin in the gear. So I'm gonna put this other one in and see if it does any better.

Quick99 Just takes a tiny bit of debris to stick a valve.

Thanks for the reply,
The valves are all free, I just updated the springs in them. I'll look at the governor today. The gear looked ok, but I haven't rechecked its movement. I don't understand why that would go bad. I know its the right gasket I triple checked that.

Quick99 I forgot also if you pull the valve body make sure you used the right valve body gaskets. Make sure no holes are covered by the gaskets.

Does anyone know what is making it do this?
