Question about Briggs & Stratton Measuring Tools & Sensors
I just purchased a used 23 hp b&S go devil. Its a 2008. Supposedly not used much however I am being to have my doubts. Right now it starts easy but only runs about half speed wide open. When I get the motor into low water it seems to run better. Any thoughts where I should start looking for the problem.

These engines seem to have problems maintaining the correct valve lash settings. try taking the valve covers off and checking the valve/pushrod clearance.on tdc compression stroke it should be .001-.003 clearance. then check exhaust stroke tdc on exhaust stroke. clearance should be same on the other valve then. hope this cures your problem.

Surging is usually caused by a lean condition You can try to turn the mixture screw ccw about 1/4 to 1/2 turn. If this does not solve the problem your carb will have to be removed, cleaned thoroughly, and reinstalled.

sounds like the gov. fell out in to the oil pan. if you remove the gov. springs and let the gov. arm move up. it will fall out. no book will till you that. if that happend you will have remove the motor and pull the oil sump pan. and put it back to gether make sure you keep the motor up side down. untill you reajust the gov.
