Mark Lowe: Thank you, well explained and a big help. Cheers.
Laddie Meadows: My Troy Bilt 554 edger is struggling to stay started. I made use it had fresh gas. I was wonder if it could be that the spring has gotten loose and needs to be tightened? Any advice? Thank you in advance.
Jos Boheme: thanks!
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?
Jakeornot: Dull-witted, here. What is the solid piece that is just to the left of the spring, please. Mower was hard-starting without direct priming, so I finally checked the spring and in doing so, the tiniest bit of the end broke off. So, I reattached the spring. I thought my eardrums would explode. Persisting in my stupidity, I ran the mower for 15 minutes, and I figure I'm lucky the blade didn't fly off or something equally horrendous. ( Grass height ordinance demanded attention today, at least in the front). At least I stopped then, but I've probably hurt the engine. Went out to buy a new spring - fat chance on a Sunday. Then I notice, finally, that that solid piece of metal isn't moving. I stopped there, and found your video, but I don't understand what the solid piece is. PS There is no oil stick - just an open hole - Briggs site says to somehow stick a piece of cloth in the tiny hole to check the oil?) Thank you.
Eloi Wolf: Hi thanks for your vid., would you be so kind and give me your guess on my B&S ? It was working fine til last summer then I changed carb. diaphragm and now it runs like this.. It does the work even so, but it's suffering :-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rM8Pr-PdBmY
striker1211: Thanks so much for this video. I had a Tecumseh 3hp auger running slow, unless you leaned your chest onto it for some reason. I couldn't figure it out, how the air coming in the top could do anything to the fuel mixture.... This explains it.
Carol White: I am a female who is trying to fix her own mower. I own a Bolen's 3.5 push mower by Stratton Briggs. I did everything right as far as the carburetor goes, but I got off track when I had to put the parts back where they originally came from. Now I can't figure out which hole on my carburetor throttle lever that my linkage goes back into. As a result, my carburetor throttle lever won't move at all. Great video and thank you!
TheSiamese Rat: myn is a 3.0 exactly like that one so when I point it torward me and the spring tightens up is it full throttle I forgot
Robert Sykes: Thanks for posting this
osovideos1: One more thank you. I fixed my slow running lawnmower in about 15 minutes after watching your video.
Doug Zeringue: Thanks so much for this video. I fixed my lawn mower in about 5 minutes and it's running great! Peace from New Orleans.
Doug Zeringue: Thanks so much for this video. I fixed my lawn mower in a few minutes and it's running great! Peace and Good Karma from New Orleans.
Maxitikos: Thank you, I also have issues tightening the carburetor. Two of the screws will not tighten fully when I try to install the carburetor to the fuel tank. The screws do tighten without the carburetor, however. Does this mean the carburetor is warped so much so that it can't be installed tightly?
Maxitikos: Hello, when I screw my governor blade onto the coil the governor is too tight and will not move. How can I solve this problem without loosening the bolt too much?
How a Briggs and Stratton Push Mower engine governor/throttle linkage is set up, and how it works.5
