Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton Intek V - Twin Vertical Ohv Engine with Electric Start 22 Hp, 1" X 3 5/32" Shaft, ModelNo. 44K777 - 0027 - E1
18hp Briggs intek wont slow down no matter where throttle is set
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
