1970s Briggs vertical shaft 7 hp engine with issues, the governor doesn't seen to hook to the carb or throttle, as in nothing seems to operate together. Secondly, I don't like the stock carb, want a side draft on it. Thinking that plus bypass the governor all together. Not working the tractor, or mowing with it, just joy riding. What is everyone using to do this, or rather, what do I need lol.

Casey, what engine do you have first of all?

 

Second, what do you mean that nothing operates together?  Is the engine hunting or is it just not hooking up right?

 

I would be careful bypassing the governor.  Briggs engines are not airplanes.  They will go boom fast.

No hunting. The throttle is hooked to the gov plate, the carb is hooked to gov linkage. Nothing seems to move each other ever...

Will run out and take pics and get the numbers off of it.
