bidders77: Hi, does anybody know of a video explaining this on an old 3.5 horse power Briggs horizontal shaft off a rotavator? Thanks
BobTheSubgenius: Good explanation. Thanks!
marcos22571: Woo! What I also did was bypass the governor and tied it straight to the throttle. I bought a throttle cable but I don't know how to link it to throttle at the carburetor? Please help...
marcos22571: How can you put a throttle handle on a stratton and brigs?
Harrison P: Now I know that the plastic thing, is an air vane governor.
TRUx Voodoo: Fnaguitarplayer, I have a quick question for you: I have a 3.5HP briggs that looks similar to this. (It's a 1988 model 90702 3080) I just replaced the coil and I can't remember how the ground wire was set! It won't restart for me and I know I have it in the wrong spot. On my old coil, one wire was cut and I think the second one was hooked up somewhere on the linkage. I've seen videos where they talk about a wire being ran down under the flywheel, but I'm pretty sure that's the one that's cut on mine. Here's a link to the image, I just had it contacting the metal bracket where the fuel hose passes through but I know that it was wrong now. http://www.lawnmowerforum.com/attachments/snapper-forum/23022d1409020825-help-finding-engine-number-1989-snapper-hi-vac-dscn0066-jpg
Karl Kerbrat: Thanks for the videos there very helpful. My uncle gave me an old 3.5 b&s for my new place and it needs a little work. Its missing the rubber 90 that leaves the left side of the carb and goes to the air line to the engine. What is that for ? Been looking up all the videos i can and its just been mention a bit. Any help is appreciated.
nonutsnorris: Hi.. Mine runs too fast and wont slow down! how do i fix that !
acinomed: Thank you so much for this video. I didn't have anyone around to help me today & mower stopped running right after going under a tree and it had always run kind of slow to be honest. Had no idea what the governor looked like. Got it all fixed up in no time. spring had come off completely.
Veejee: Where can I find the plastic arm that the governor/spring hook into? It got broken and I can't find one anywhere.
Greg Cherry: TY for vid on gov vane . I hav a prob , 3.5 B&g push , it will idle fine but when i throttle up it dies instantly, any ideas, ran fine for bout a month
Ron Holder: Someone gave me a mower that has has a Briggs & Stratton engine with this governor/throttle assembly, or one very similar. The linkage was missing when I got it, but I improvised with a paper clip. I'm not sure the spring in there is the correct one; it seems too loose. Some diagrams I've seen look like there should be two springs, and the throttle bracket itself looks like it would accommodate two springs, but I only see the one in your video. I want to order the correct parts so it will work the way it should. Any more info? Thanks for anything you can share.
Arvind Mallya: Thank you so much my spring was loose and flopping around, this certainly helped me understand.
jayden rogers: i have an old rover easy start 35. the issue is that it is quite the opposite to easy starting. i have to tip fuel into the carboy and pull at least 5 times to get it started (pardon the pun). Not sure if its the primer button not working or something to do with inlet, but once its started it runs fine, doesn't miss and never stalls
urielitocd: Muchas gracias por la explicación me sirvió mucho!!!
rs71355: Thanks for explaining that i wondered how it worked. I have a push mower with a briggs 6hp motor and its about 18 yrs old but still runs strong. Last year at the end of season it started revving up and down like the governor was pulsating, it starts out small then builds till it goes dead & would not start until it sat for a while. I tried cleaning the carb several times and would run fine for about 10 minutes then do it again, so i thought i'd put a new carb on it. I just put it on and it ran great for about 30 min. then did the same thing so i'm thinking something to do with the governor now maybe but didn't understand how it worked. Any thoughts on a problem like this. Like i said it started out of the blue last year. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Tiffany Chance: My mower will start then shut off. Do you happen to know any reasons for this? I have a Briggs and Stratton push mower.
jamesb72: Thanks so much, mower running slow, and couldn't work out why, this is great help !
C Harley: Thanks heaps for the explanation. U made it Real easy to understand
