Briggs and Stratton 17HP Intek Governer Overspeeds

I am working on an Yardman by MTD Riding mower with a 17hp Briggs and Stratton V-Twin engine. I repaired the starter and on start up the Governer goes to wide open. What is the procedure for setting it properly so it functions as it should? Thanks, Ed

Can you Regulate the Engine Speed Using the Governor Arm? If Yes, then Reset the Governor. **To Reset the Governor; Loosen the Governor Arm Bolt and Turn the Governor Shaft Clockwise Until it Stops. Using the Governor Arm Hold the Carburetor to Full Throttle. Now with the Shaft Full Clockwise and the Governor Arm and Carburetor Held at Full Throttle, Tighten the Governor Arm Bolt. If the Engine Still Runs Full Throttle, then Reverse the Rotation of the Governor Shaft, but Still Hold the Carburetor at Full Throttle with the Governor Arm. If it Still Runs at Full Throttle, then Check the Internal Governor.** If you Can Not Regulate the Engine Speed Using the Governor Control Arm, then Check the Carburetor Throttle Valve. If the Throttle Control Valve (sometimes called a Flap or Plate) Mounting Screws Came Out of the Control Valve, then you will have No Control Over the Engine Speed. Send me the Model and Type or Spec Numbers Off the Engine, Please. With these I can Locate the Proper Manual and Better Assist you. **The Throttle Cable Attaches to the Throttle Control Bracket. The Cable Moves a Slide that Moves a Pivot. The Pivot has the Spring Attached to it and to the Governor Arm. The Solid Link Connects to the Governor Arm and goes to the Throttle Shaft on the Carburetor. When the Throttle Cable is Moved it Moves the Pivot and the Pivot Pulls the Spring. The Spring Pulls the Governor Arm and the Governor Arm Moves the Throttle Shaft. Usually the Spring is in the Lower Hole in the Governor Arm and the Solid Link is in the Top Hole of the Governor Arm.** If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance. Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens

Lisa, Make sure fuel supply shut off is on and fresh fuel in tank. Could be clogged fuel filter, fuel pump issue if equipped or a fuel shut off solenoid,dirty carburetor, etc. Check the attached links,instruction and guides on trouble shooting no fuel to engine. Good luck

Lawn Mower won't start


Its a thing of beauty to see problems solve themselves. It seems to me this trial and error approach is very taxing and could have been avoided if 1, your small engine repair guy/Craftsman/Sears had sold you the right parts from the start, or 2, you had bought the right part... from the start.
