I am working on a gensv7 Chinese diesel generator made by buffalo tools. I see a piece which has threads on it near the governor but can't tell how to slow the generator down to idle. It runs fast and when I press the lever to shut it off it shuts off okay so I just have to adjust that pointer piece that hits the governor thanks.

so what is up on the gen set?
is it running at 60hz? that is the proper way to test them...
standard generators have a fixed rpm window they need to stick at for the 60hz.
so the gov is to keep the generator fuel delivery right on that narrow window of speed.
so they run at a "fixed speed" no idle.

the exception is on the inverter generators where they use the inverter to set the cadence for proper output.
and there are servo / steeper motors to control the carb or injection.

set by the hz is the best
click here to see the tools page
a good fluke meter with the hz like the #87 work well
there is also a pn2000 meter that has hz for less than 40 bucks on that page too.
those are handy for working with gen sets and testing small appliances as well.
I was wondering if they make a talking hertz meter. I am blind and I use a talking volt meter thanks.

not that i know of on the talking hz meter..
get in your chat rooms for handicap... I have yet to see fluke make a talking meter...

best solution...
get a friend to lend a hand.
be care full when working on high voltage when you are sight challenged..
it is hard enough to stay alive when you can see!
GRIN!
stay safe out there.
