2. Start the engine and carefully reduce the speed with
the throttle until the desired idle speed is established.
3. Turn the low-speed stop screw down until the
engine speed just begins to increase.
4. Tighten the lock nut to secure the stop screw in

Governors with Synchronizing Motor
Some hydraulic governors are equipped with a
reversible electric synchronizing motor (Fig. 10)
mounted on the governor cover.
The adjustments on a governor equipped with a
synchronizing motor are the same as on a governor
without the motor. However, the governor cover and
