boonhead Bonson: great simple and informative video.. thanks

THE GERMAMA: hi my quantum engine throttle is all the way open and will not close down when moving throttle lever?

J's WorkShop: Can it damage one of these engines that run at full throttle most of the time to be maualy set to idle? Should you set to full throttle to mow or the semi-idle?

Craig L: I have one of the engines. But when, when I pull the throttle to put it in stop, the engine continues running and won't stop. I can see it's all fully connected and when pulling the throttle lever up and down the governor tightens and loosens.. Help?

swag overload: Thank you for this video. I'm going to cut the spring to add some tension because my lawn mower is surging up and down in rpms, even under load and i'm fairly certain it's because of the spring tension.

Spyked Enterprises: Thank you this was very helpful!

ontariohvac: You're a humanitarian.

tommy hanlon: hi, can u tell me : can i convert my old chokomatic 3.0 hp to the newer red primer bulb type? i have a seized briggs classic engine with the newer primer set up so i have all the bits to try. i luv my old briggs but it's a pain to start from cold (shud be called ''hernia-o-matic!'') & i'v always found the plunger type carb easier to start. thanks from Ireland. oh & what shud the rpm's be .... seems most vids say 3100-ish rpm ?

Eduardo Guevara: Good evening, I have a Briggs and Stratton Quatume 5.5 Murray that the carburator butter fly is wide open. I've moved and push everything on the lawn mower but no luck on closing it. I just completed a tune up and cleaned out the carburator. I am not sure what to do next or what the issue may be. Any help is appreciated. Thank you

Rocky Luke: I got a briggs and stratton 3hp engine like yours. I want to make a gokart engine out of it with a throttle grip. How to i do that? ;D Can someone help me out! ;) ????

PahnduhHD: okay so I have a Briggs I use for my go Kart, its just a one screw adjustment that slows or raises rpm's. is my main goal to get the lowest rpms without it turning off ? what should I set it to

very helpful video..Thanks!

Shaine MacDonald: Why wasn't the throttle plate opening and closing when you were pulling on the Governor arm??

Michel Beaulieu: I have the exact same carburetor as you. I have a problem, the choke always stay on. The mower start instantly, but with the choke on, i will not last long. If i put a screwdriver and open the choke manually, the engine revs up and everything is ok. What can i do?

Mark Lowe: Thank you, well explained and a big help. Cheers.

Michael Engle: might be a dumb question but if the governor arm is broken or missing, could that be the cause for the motor not starting ,or does the vane just matter after the engine is running?

James Marshall: mine keeps backfiring throttle is up and down on speed

pamela parker: very good

justforever96: Okay, I've got a Briggs "300 Series"; it's one of these cheap modern ones that doesn't even have a throttle cable. It's been surging like crazy, barely keep running. I took the top off, and it doesn't have a air-flap thing like that. I can see a rod coming up from by the crankshaft, connected to a lever on the carb, operating the throttle valve. You can see it moving back and forth as the engine surges, but when you try to hold it in place, or open the throttle up manually, it still surges. It'll try to rev up when you open the throttle, but it'll keep cutting out, even when you hold the throttle totally still. I don't know what else to try other than emptying all the gas out and refilling it with brand new stuff. I've tried two different cans, put Sta-bil and dry-gas in, but maybe that wasn't enough?

Thomas Koren: I've got the same engine on my mower, it has one wierd habit since the gastank screw went loose and i retightened it.

Now it only runs full throttle, or if i push the throttle back, it turns off near the zero mark. any way to fix this?
