I recently purchased a Craftsman II, Model 917-255913, Engine; B&S Model 422437. The carburetor was off when I bought it and I am having a problem on how to hook up the 2 spings on the carb/govenor. I've looked at the B&S Engine Repair Manual, but there are no clear pictures as to how they should be hooked up. If anyone has a photo/illustration on how to setup the govenor I would be very appreciative. Thanks, Dennis

Strange, mine must be older.
