On Briggs and Stratton engines , and probably other makes, that I have worked on for years, often there will be a linkage rod (heavy wire), that runs through a very small spring. In cases like the 4 HP horizontal B & S that I'm working on now the link wire and the spring both hook in the same holes at each end. I wonder , since the link is a solid piece of wire, what is the purpose of the spring? Thanks.

I've always wondered that too. Seems that spring on one end is always worn thru on older ones and not doing much.
