The objective is to adjust the linkage so the measured high idle of the engine is the same as measured high idle
without the linkage. Proper use of the over-travel spring on the governor will cause this to happen.
Start engine (TM 5-3895-379-10) and allow to operate at low idle for five minutes to warm up.
Turn engine off (TM 5-3895-379-10).
Governor lever can be pushed past the contact point between the high idle adjustment screw
and the idle screw adjustment stop. Ensure that the throttle linkage adjustment is made such
that high idle position is between the first contact point of the high idle screw and the idle
screw stop and the maximum lever rotation angle. Too little angle will result in decreased
Adjust throttle cable linkage by turning the lock to the left to lengthen cable and clockwise to
Slide spring-loaded sheath (Figure 18, Item 3) away from governor lever (Figure 18, Item 2) and disconnect
ball joint assembly (Figure 18, Item 6) on throttle cable (Figure 18, Item 4) from governor lever.
Lock throttle cable handle (Figure 18, Item 9) at full throttle by pushing down on button (Figure 18, Item 1),
pulling throttle handle up as far as possible, and turning friction lock (Figure 18, Item 10) clockwise until handle
is held in position.
Push governor lever (Figure 18, Item 2) until it is half-way between where the high idle adjustment screw
(Figure 18, Item 8) makes contact with idle screw adjustment stop (Figure 18, Item 7) and the maximum point
at which the lever will rotate. This is half-way through the over-travel adjustment of the spring.
Loosen locking nut (Figure 18, Item 5) at throttle cable ball joint assembly (Figure 18, Item 6) and adjust linkage
until ball on governor lever (Figure 18, Item 2) is aligned with cavity in spring-loaded sheath
(Figure 18, Item 3).
