maybe there are for the Switch? to the solenoid, that engages the contacts to switch through to the starter. Usually it goes from the battery, to a solenoid, that breaks the Power to - from the battery to the actual "Starter motor". try to "Trace" them out and see where they go. just a thought?

How to adjust governor on a Tecumseh hmsk80?

Static Governor Adjust.

With the engine stopped, loosen the screw holding the
governor clamp on the governor lever. Rotate the clamp in
a direction that will force the throttle shaft open and allow
the governor follower arm to rest on the governor spool.
Push the governor lever connected to the throttle to the
wide open throttle position. Hold the lever and clamp in
this position while tightening the screw.

Engine speed surges up and down


First check for the obvious... fresh fuel? clean air filter? carburetor mounting bolts/nuts tight? cylinder head bolts tight? crank case bolts/nuts tight?

Now to adjust the governor:
Find where the governor shaft comes out of the engine... loosen the nut and bolt on the governor arm clamp (where the governor arm clamps to the governor shaft). Gently pull the governor arm back until it stops, Gently turn the governor shaft the same way (some have a slot for a screwdriver or a hex-head for a nut driver to hold the shaft at it's closed position) as you pull the governor arm. Both the arm and the shaft must be at their full stop of travel while you tighten the governor arm clamp. It may take another person to lend a hand to keep the governor arm at the closed position while you tighten the clamp.

Have hooked spring at throttle to govenor but now seems to stiff. did i get it hooked to the wrong place? it's on a maxim tiller 5 hp briggs 130202 3131-01

on a b/s 5hp the small governor spring goes on a thing that has two ears in it.take the tank back off and as you bring it back in place you will take the gov. spring and turn the top part of it sideways to slip over the ears of the spring holder.when you have it on the spring should be below the holder with the top of the spring in a groove that is between the ears.make sure the white kill wire is out of the way of the throttle cam.this should have the governor spring on correctly.

I will try again here.
1 wire link from the top hole in the governor arm to the throttle on the carb. There should also be a wire link with a spring that goes from the Governor arm to the speed control handle.
