the governor is internal to the engine. The sump on the engine has to be removed and on this generator, the engine has to be separated from the generator! Then the sump can be removed from the top portion of the engine. I could not identify the engine that is used o the Wolf, but it appears to be a Briggs clone! A Briggs engine manual shows the exact same type governor used. Governor would need to be replaced only if it does not control top speed and lets engine over rev.All other problems would be adjustments to the linkage.
