Governor question

Our GCX50 has a Perkins 4 cylinder propane power. Has anyone had a problem of when you accelerate it bogs down to a crawl. Have replaced regulator and vaporizer. Looks like the governor is not working properly. Vacuum advance on dist. is working. Anyone have experience with this?

I'm not sure what governor you have but if is velocity type mounted under the carb it will do that if the spring in it broke. Take the side cover of the governor off and take a look.

It is a velocity type. The side cover looks like is riveted on. Is that how you get it off to check spring drill it out? I found out that this is a obsolete part and no where to be found. Any ideas on what else will work?
