Picket up this nice Cheetah 4HP mower with a broken pull starter.. hardly looks like it had ever been run.. I decided to fit it to a spare Victa chassis that was sitting around and fitted a Masport Quadcut blade to it..
Although it starts and runs fine, it seems a bit lacking in power.. picks up revs when you manually work the governor arm.
The emulsion tube that came out of the carb is a 007..and is the one at the top of the has the largest holes.

Hi Kenny

The cheetah having a fixed throttle makes it feel very anemic. They are governed at 2600rpm from factory.

If you unscrew the spring loaded screw behind the governor arm (half way up in your photo) you can get more revs
