Hart - I answered this below. The cub C 60 engine will run at full throttle all day long with no problems.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!

To expand a little, the governor limits your engine speed to 1800 rpm (if that's what it's set for) no matter what gear your in, so run it at whatever throttle setting you want in whatever gear you want.
