alright, I got it running by taking it more-or-less apart and guessing as to 
which hole the governor's spring went into. that thing is a death trap. my son 
and I love it. 

but it's still doing the rpm oscillation. so basically, I fangle a way to 
connect the throttle cable to the butterfly in the carb throat (where the 
governor is currently connected)? and then I can remove the associated governor 
parts? I ask like that because whatever's driving the governor is deep in the 
case. I don't know that I'd take it apart to get the stuff out of there, so I 
can just remove the lever that attaches to the throttle butterfly and call it a 
day? or should I assume something in the case is messed up and it needs to come 

and why should a friggin' chinese lawnmower engine be even this complex? 

but anyhow, it runs. and it's got a little power. someone's going to end up in 
the e.r., I'm sure. <grin>

It'll be crisper with a direct connection and should run just fine. 
Depending on the carb size, it may bog slightly if you floor it too 
fast; the governor damps that action a bit. 

Worst that can happen is you blow the motor, or run the cable 
incorrectly and the throttle sticks and you plow into a wall.
