    I have the same problem. Perhaps for future reference it would be helpful for me to take a picture before taking things apart.
    Can you submit a diagram on the throttle cable linkage to the carburator.
    Each time I place the linkage into the hole it pops out.

I would recommend that you go to a store -- with a digital camera and notepad -- that sells this product and has a display of it fully assembled, and take pictures and note on the throttle assembly.

My B&S engine suddenly runs at full throttle and the throttle lever has no effect ?

Sounds like you have a governor problem it governs the speed of the " governs " calls for more engine speed for hills,heavy grass etc. then back it off when not needed. Sounds is calling for speed but isn't backing off,, most likely dirty..try using carb and linkage cleaner spray and spray the entire throttle and governor area thoroughly. Them some lubricant like WD40 or such ..and operate the handle back and forth to get the the linkage loosened...if this doesn't clear it up professional service is needed..good luck.

I have a poulan push mower that when it starts the throttle goes up and down at any speed can this be adjusted out with the govenor spring?

This problem is usually caused by the diaphragm unit needing replaced underneath the carburetor. I'm guessing you have the Briggs engine with the (plastic) carb directly on top of the gas tank and no float bowl on the carb. You remove the tank and carb as one unit (being careful to note the spring/linkage hookups). Then remove the 5 screws that hold the carb to the tank. Then remove the gasket and diaphragm that is between the two. The replacement kit will cost you about $4 USD. Be careful! there is also a spring under there. Don't lose it and make a note of it's placement. A pinhole or a weak diaphragm is usually what makes these engines 'surge'. Hope this helps and best of luck to you.If you decide to do this repair yourself, be sure to clean all the little holes and indents and the carb itself with carb cleaner too, but don't spray it on the gaskets.

My boyfriend took his carb off of his 18hp Husqvarna lawn mower. For the life of him he can't remember how to attach the choke linkage back to the carboutator. please please help us

Look at the wear marks on the plates they attach to. As air flow through the carb, the throttle will attach to the engine end and the choke is the one at the air intake end.

I always take a picture of the linkage now before taking apart, after messing it up before.

I hope this helps.

Crafstman chainsaw at full power when started

If you had this apart, a few things may have happened. First the linkage from carb to throttle trigger maybe jammed between plastic housing or linkage may have come apart and throttle is in the full open position. You'll have to take this apart again and follow the linkage between carb and throttle trigger to ensure all is connected and moving freely and properly. Use care when putting housing back together.

Hi, I took out my carb on kawasaki el250 forgot how throttle cables were connected. a picture of both sides would help out alot!

if you move the throttle linkage on the carb you will see which of the mounting holes rises and which goes the oppisite way. normally the front 1 is the pull and the rear is the push. do the same on the cables by twisting the throttle on and off so you can see which 1 goes which way. hope this helps
