SOURCE: pull cord switch

If it is a 1 way switch circuit (2core +earth cable) it should be LIVE/HOT in COM and Aux live (to the light) in L1 . I

f you have a 2 way circuit (3 core + earth cable) the aux strappers go in L1 & L2. and LIVE/HOT to COM

Remember to disconnect the power before working on electric wiring.

SOURCE: tecumseh engine #143.985510 - carb linkage hook-up


The Carbuertor Throttle is Held in the Full Open Position Until the Engine is Started and Running, then the Governor and Spring Work together to Keep the Engine RPMs to the Desired Setting.
The Following is an Explaination on How the Governor System on Small Engines Function.
>>The Governor System behaves like an Unending Tug of War between One of Two Governor Springs, which Pull the Throttle Toward the Open Position, and a Spinning Crankshaft, which Tries to Close the Throttle. When the Load on the Engine Increases - a Typical Example is when you Move your Running Lawn Mower from the Driveway to the Grass - Crankshaft Revolutions Drop. But the Governor Spring is Still Tugging, Causing the Throttle Plate to Open. In Response, a Larger Volume of Air-Fuel Mixture Enters the Carburetor, Increasing Engine Speed to Compensate for the Increased Load. The Crankshaft Speeds Up, and the Tug of War Resumes, until a New Equilibrium is Achieved. With Each Change in Load, the Tension Between the Governor Spring and the Load Brings about a New Equilibrium, known as the Engine's Governed Speed. Neither Side Wins until the Engine is Shut Off. At that Point, without the Crankshaft Spinning, the Governor Spring Pulls the Throttle to the Wide-Open Position. Two Types of Governors are Common on Small Engines - Mechanical and Pneumatic.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, 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, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Briggs Stratton 5hp I/C starts ok, runs, but will not rev

My money is on a partial blockage of the main jet or the passageway to it. You're having to force it to run through the idle jet by fully choking the incoming air. There's not enough gas coming in with the choke open to allow it to run.

I'm thiniking total carb disassembly, carb cleaner and an air compressor combined with a ton of patience will take care of the issue.

Leave the unit unplugged for at least 4 hours then plug it back up, if it still clicks and doesn't cool, the compressor is likely burned out. It sounds as though it just overheated and is tripping out on overload, it should restart and run fine if it didn't get too hot. Good Luck...

hi sounds like the main spindle shaft that operates the carbs has seized spray penetrating oil wd40 or similar all over the outside of the carbs giving them a good soaking leave for a good few hours
and gently try and wriggle the throttle cable till it starts to move then spray it some more if this doesnt work remove the carbs and clean them out putting penetrating oil inside the throttle bores
you will probably need to take off the lower fuel bowls and clean them out too if its been standing a long time the fuel avaporates away and your left with a lot of corrosion inside that must be cleaned
out as it will block fuel flow through the carbs

How do I adjust(set)the engine speed govenor on an Atco 114cc engine.

Some ATCO carburettors have more than one hole for attaching the throttle cable to the governor pivot, which will allow some variation of the speed setting by moving to a different hole.
Just before the throttle cable reaches the governor pivot it passes through a metal lug (separated from the pivot by a spring) here there is threaded screw on the throttle cable - loosen or tighten this to adjust running speed.
There is also a throttle stop adjusting screw which on the side of the carburettor which you can adjust to set the idle speed.

I am having a problem with the Acceleration, The petal may be loose? It feel like the petal doesn't go down as far as it used to, the cars takeoff is significantly slower now. I have inspected the gas...

Real good chance the throttle valve cable and linkage from throttle to top of linkage is seized, or seizing and needs lubrication. You'll have to remove battery to see it good under battery tray, and look for the piece of linkage on top where shifter linkage attaches.It needs to move freely. It also regulates your shift points as well, when passing etc. If you push gas pedal hard, it will begin to stick in lower gear longer (revving) before it shifts up, and will downshift hard as well when slowing to stop. Gas pedal will feel stiff, until you get it freed up. Try penetrating lube like WD-40 first to get it freed up, then spray white lithium grease or similar on it after. Do not try to remove nut holding it on, and remove linkage, just leave it on there and keep working it until it will move a full sweep back and forth freely. If you remove that piece of linkage, shaft will drop down and need to remove pan etc to fix it. If you need a picture, let me know, I have one from past experience with same.

Have a look at throttle valve cable, which will run to transmission, close to shifter cable. It runs from throttle linkage area on throttle body, to the transmission. The cable and/or linkage may be partially seizing at transmission end, and hanging up too long resulting in symptoms you are experiencing. With engine off, have someone press throttle to floor slowly, and watch what that linkage does, then have them release pedal, and watch as well. When pedal is pushed it should pull that linkage around, and when pedal is released, that linkage should return fully in the opposite direction. If that linkage doesn't return all the way freely, then transmission will hold up in lower gear longer. Give that linkage area, a good spray with penetrating spray, such as WD-40 or similar, and make sure it is returning all the way freely. Once it's freed up real good, spray it with white lithium grease or similar to keep it from doing same in near future. You can probably work that linkage by hand as well, to make sure it gets loosened up real good, and is returning fully. Give that a try and let me know how it goes.
