How to put spring back on carburetor on murray 5 hp push mower?

Hard say exactly without model of engine, but on most small briggs engines is as follows. One end of the spring will hook into the loop of the linkage wire that connects the governor to the carburetor butterfly and the other end will hook into to O of the throttle plate. Thus as you move your throttle plate to increase your engine rpm it applies more tension on the spring opening the governors up and vise versa when moved to lower your rpm's. Hope this helps.

I need to know where the springs hook on the governor arm on a 445777-0129-E1 briggs 25hp v-twin

on the governor rod there should be a spring that gos around the rod and hooks on both ends of the rod .then theres a spring and its very important that it is the right tension spring,go to a dealer and have him look up the correct spring for that model once you get it the spring will accually make the governor sping the engine wide open till it starts but from the governor arm you should see a holder of some kind or a hole where a spring goes to,thats the best I can do for you without seeing it,the dealer where you get your spring may hae a diagram of it!

the little spring should go through same holes as the linkage it's purpose is to take the slack out of the rod to keep the engine running smooth a broken spring will cause it too run erratically

Motor runs wide open when set @ slow speed

It could be that the governor spring has become disconnected or has broken on an end where it hooks onto the throttle linkage. If the spring is OK & throttle linkage is not binding it could mean the governor drive inside the engine has failed preventing the governor from operating correctly. You may need to take the engine to a mechanic to fix the problem.

Carb linkage hook up

Hello rebel_auto:

>>Send me the Make, Model and Type or Spec Numbers Off the Engine, Please. With these I can Locate the Proper Manual and Better Assist you.
However, this File may Help.
**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 the Other End of this Spring Attaches 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.**
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or 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, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck
