I have a B&S Model 8 on a Bolens Versamatic.

The governor control linkage to the carb is missing.

Does anyone have any photos and/or the linkage for this?

I saw (in a parts breakdown) what appears to be a very short piece of rod wit a "Z" bend on each end. I do not know if this is what I need or what the length of it is.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

 

I did get it running!!

In this photo, FIG 60......The small circle shows the throttle lever, spring and the short rod I am looking for..My throttle lever only has 2 holes...one for the spring, and 1 for the governor rod.

I have disassembled the carb and am soaking it in carb cleaner...The float and float needle were stuck big time.

Now I need some gaskets too!

Depending on the year of the engine they had Airvain or Mechanical governor. I had to order a couple for 2 model Ns and 1 model 8.

 

Briggs parts numbers.

 

For Mechanical governor Briggs part # 26548

For Air Vane governor Briggs part # 26391

PM these fellas they may have a both.
