It's one of two things. Most likely, the screw(s) have come out of the butterfly valve on the throttle shaft and letting it run wide open. The second thing is that the governor gear inside the engine broke. Unless you a pretty good mechanic, I'd recommend taking it to a shop. If it is just the butterfly in the carb, you still have to deal with...where did the screws go? They may have passed through the intake and exhaust valves or they may be stuck in one of the valve seats or embedded in the piston. Like I said, better take it to a trusted shop, if there is such a thing, unless you live close to me. lol.

Sounds like the butterfly on throttle shaft has broken loose or the shaft has broken I have repaired several of these and it seems to be a common problem. Be sure to check for all the parts as they could be loose in the cylinder or stuck in the intake

I have a 18hp b&s inteck that want idle the govenor goes back and forth


I believe the condition your describing is called "hunting" this sometimes happens when engine has a problem with it's air/fuel mix usually due to a carb problem
id start by cleaning out the fuel tank and filters and then moving on to the carb

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.

My intek 18hp will only run with choke fully closed.please advise possible problem &solution .the throttle seems to have little impact on the running of the engine


Hi and welcome to FixYa. It sounds like the metering jet in the bottom of the carb throat is clogged.

1st turn off the fuel supply

You will have to remove the float bowl from the carb and then the BRASS jet / orifice. Once removed hold it up to the light.. you should see a pinhole of light thru the jet. No pin-hile = run only with choke. ALSO the nut / bolt that holds on the float bowl has 2 holes in it make sure those are clear.

Before you reinstall the float bowl turn on the fuel and catch it in a spray paint can lid or something similar. It should flow rapidly and stop as you GENTLY raise the float. If no flow then you have a stuck needle and seat or a clogged fuel supply line. Correct same and reinstall the filter bowl. It should run fine after that.


Thanks for using FixYa!
