2210 Governor

Postby MizzouBeach » Wed Oct 31, 2018 7:07 pm

So, I just put my 2210 engine back together, and it runs great. One problem: the governor adjustment. I looked in the manual, and didn't see anything about the adjustment at the front of the engine, which is an adjustment screw with a lock nut, and then an acorn nut to cover it. I tried adjusting the screw out all the way (not good), and in all the way (better), and many places in between. I settled on in more than out, but it still doesn't idle well, and seems to surge somewhat. I've attached pictures showing the adjustment screw. If anyone has had experience with this, please let me know.

I'm not familiar with the 2210 specifically but if no better info, generally a governor is adjusted with throttle wide open all adjustments and components are set for full throw, (wide open). I wouldn't think the governor would have any effect on idle quality.

Instructions from an I&T manual that includes the 240. Would guess it would work on your 2210. Doubt you are going to be able to use the instructions unless you take it back apart.

Thanks, guys. I didn't change the settings on the end of the shaft (dimension "A" in the detail), so I'm assuming that is OK, but I will have to look at the adjustments inside the side cover plate, and see if that helps it.l

A sticky injection pump rack will also cause that. The rack should slide back & forth just by tipping the pump side to side.

I know this is over two years later, but thought I"d share in case it was helpful to someone else.
When I took the engine apart a year ago to rebuild it, I noticed that the adjusting bolt and nut (#3 in the top diagram) that connects the governor slide bar to the governor mechanism inside the front engine cover was loose....apparently, I had forgotten to tighten it when I had the engine apart the last time. And before I rebuilt the engine a year ago, one of the last problems I had was that the engine ran wide open until it puked lots of black smoke and then died. For good.
