I DonT think you want them to slip at all when you're sawing, but mine stopped the engine cold when it happened.  :o  I musta had'em honked down really hard. ???  I shoulda just trashed the log when it first happened. You can bet I will if it ever happens again.

Another thing I learned while poring over the manual. The governor holds the throttle wide open when the engine is stopped. This also means it holds it open when the governor stops but the engine DonT, like if the governor belt breaks. That engine will go to 97 kazillion RPMs in a skinny second. Be SURE your governor belt is in good shape. I'm thinking of putting a rev limiter on mine, like the racing folks use, if I can find one that will adjust down to about 3000 rpm. When I first started mine after the overhaul, I had the governor hooked up. It was out of adjustment, somehow, and I thought I had blown the thing up again. I still haven't hooked it back up, since I haven't defeated all the oil leaks, yet. There is a procedure in the manual for setting it up.
