Not sure where to put this but since the engine is on a mounted tiller on my 1256 I put it in there.  B&S 5 hp engine with the pull up throttle control.  Throttle rod has a spring around it which at the top sticks out to the side about an inch, bends 90° for 1/2", then makes a short loop and back about an inch again.  This loop is supposed to hook on something to apply side pressure on the shaft to hold the throttle in any position from idle to wide open.  Spring was unhooked when I got the machine and cannot figure out where it is supposed to go.

Engine MODEL:  150202     TYPE:  0592  02          Code:    79072501

 

Does not have the thumb knob on top to adjust the speed like a lot of the manuals show.

 

Anyone have any ideas? ?

I'm thinking this manual should cover this series

Thanks Brian.  I have that manual and scoured the carb section about 3 times.  They show the thumb knob and a remote control hook up but saw nothing about the simple pull for fast, push down for slow or anywhere in between.  Pic shows what I am dealing with.    Control.JPG      Spring.JPG
