Hey all. I've been through the manuals section and 2/3 of the internet ans still haven't found what I'm looking for. Does anyone have a diagram, pics, or part numbers of the throttle and governor linkage on a 16hp Briggs in a 72 Monty Ward/Gilson tractor.
The previous owner concocted a goofy setup with a really stiff spring from the throttle cable to the governor arm with one link going up to the throttle and another spring going to a homemade bracket that is bolted to the block. His thinking must have been to use the lower spring to counter the excessive pull of the other one. I know it isn't right--and it almost kida works--but can't recall what setup these things had and none of my books shows it for this series engine with a Flo-Jet. The last time I worked on one of this type was 20-odd years ago and I'm lucky to remember where my keys are, much less what I did back then.
It's a 16HP B&S 326434 0134-01 in a 72 Monty Ward/Gilson 33144B with a Flo-Jet 392587 carb.
If anyone has any info, or a link to it or a book I overlooked in the manuals section it would be appreciated.
