I buy most of my parts from a local small engine repair shop. These are all B/S branded parts and they are not cheap but at least I know they should be high quality. At least I hope I'm getting high quality.

I got my governor parts from Jack's Small Engines. They were the only place that had everything I needed listed.

 

When I got this tractor it had the cable attached to the governor arm by one spring that was way too big. It looked like the throttle return spring on my truck. I had to get everything except the governor arm itself and everything was B&S. I didn't order bolts and nuts from there, though. $3 for a nylock nut is, well, just nuts when they're less than a quarter at the hardware store and there's nothing really unique about them. I also stocked up on gaskets since the shipping stayed the same. I had to wait for a couple of parts to come in so it took a little less than two weeks.
