I recently aquired a Briggs and Stratton 8hp horizontal shaft engine.
Model 19052 0552-01 73121410
It was pulled from a sears 3 point tiller that a friend bought and repowered with a Harbor Freight Predator engine. He had never ran this engine but said it reved at full speed when started. I looked and the idle screw wasn't touching but is fully open and when you turn it by hand so the screw touches, it is spring loaded so it turns hard and opend full throttle when you let go.. I am thinking that someone has something hooked up backwards ot the governor is way out of whack. I would like to find a manual online but don't know what to look for.
So my questions currently would be"
Where do I get the correct manual?
What about that spring loaded throttle?
