SOURCE: how to set timing on 23 hp briggs and stratton intek v twin 23 hp

The only way to set the timing is by aligning the cam and crankshaft gears, before doing this check the shear pin in the fly wheel to see if it has been sheared off.

Governor does not seem to work

Sometimes the governor gear inside the engine breaks and you have to replace it. Did you try to adjust the governor by putting the throttle full and unloosen the screw on the governor arm and push the governor piece the same direction as the throttle opens and tighten the screw.

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.

Think i have a problem with governor on my 21hp v-twin briggs. it jumped to max speed and can't get it to slow down. which part of the governoring system could have let go?

Check for a broken spring on the governor linkage, follow your throttle control cable down to where it attaches to the throttle mechanism. In behind where the cable attaches you should be able to see a spring on the governor arm, the spring may have broken or somehow came out of its attaching point. Obviously be very careful about over-revving the engine, it could result in a broken connecting rod and a hole in the side of your crankcase.

Had the same problem with the same engine. Governor control in the base of the engine fell apart. Requires pulling the engine which is pretty easy, then removing the bolts along the bottom of the crankcase. YOu'll see the governor and or pieces in the bottom. Use a magnet to get all metal pieces from the oil, then replace the governor. Get the model and type off the valve cover from the engine when replacing governor. 3 hour job and you're done..////While it's out check the valve lash by removing rocker covers. Set them at .006 or a tight 007. That way you'll know it didn't through a pushrod when it was over reving..good luck
