So in the process of pulling the carb on my 11hp horizontal briggs, the damn choke linkage came off.

I just spent an hour trying to put it back togther and got pissed and walked from it.

Does anyone have an clear picture of how it hooks to the governor assembly?

I dont know what im missing here. If i put it on the way it looks like it should go on the spring does nothing and the throttle wont go down past half.

Help, im pulling my hair out.

They are all basically the same. If you take the choke cable, and hook it into the choke 'lever' then tighten it down to the carb you should be all good.

I usually make this mistake as well, but here's where I remind us again; take a photo of the linkage before we take it apart. :thumbs:

It doesnt have a seperate choke cable. Its intgrated with the throttle.

I watched that video but it didnt show what i needed.

That manual really helped. My choke rod is a bit different (its got a much larger hook on the end) but its basically the same, i should be able to get it now. Thank you
