8 HP Engine Swap Question
Good Evening All!
New to the forum and I have a question regarding swapping an 8 hp motor from a generator to a log splitter. Assuming shaft size is the same, is there a way to convert the generator motor from a governor run throttle to a manual throttle? The motor on the log splitter has a manual throttle and the generator is run by a governor. I don't want to tear apart the engine if possible.
Generator is a BS 8 HP 190412-2933 02 from 1987 if that helps. I don't have the model of the splitter motor on hand, but they look pretty much identical except the throttle.
Thanks much for your expertise!
