That motor has a little linkage on it. One end has a loop in it. Purchase a new governor spring that matches the model of engine you have. The spring should have a closed loop on both ends that'll come open if you look close enough. One end hooks onto the link with the loop in it, the other end hooks to the section that the cable connects too. Very simple but yet if not installed properly can cause you a nightmare when it comes to rpm's and governor working properly.

I have a 6.5 B&S engine on a RYOBI lawn mower That will not come up to mowing RPM. the mower does not have a throttle cable and the spring on the throttle appear to be intach. The engine starts real...

Normally when you move the throttle control on the handle, all that is happening is that governor spring tension is increasing or decreasing pull on the linkage /governor arm. With engine off and plug wire removed, look for a small shaft coming out of the engine with an arm attached. Attached to the small arm will be linkage to the throttle on carb.. So when you move the throttle on the carb with your finger the arm moves also. There should be spring connected to opposite side of governor arm connected to throttle control at the handle or small lever or metal tab. When you incease pull on the spring, the engine will speed-up. Adjust as needed. Good luck

What is the proper weight oil for most walk behind mowers.

SAE 30. If you run synthetic (hard to find in SAE 30W) then you can get away with using a muti-viscosity oil like 10-30W. Briggs and Stratton are very adamant that ONLY SAE30W be used in their small engines.

Push mower with 4 hp Briggs motot surges, small

If the spring has only become dislodged, and not broken, you just need to find out where it goes. Take a digital picture of the carburetor from the top (you may have to remove the plastic shroud). Take another from the side, and from wherever else you can get an angle. Take the camera and small mirror with you to a place that sells mowers. B&S doesn't change their engines & carbs very often. You just need to find any mower with a 4 hp B&S, or even a 4.5 to 6.5 will probably be similar enough.

Briggs and Stratton Governor Linkage problem

The easiest thing for you to do is look at any 12.5-19hp Briggs single cylinder engine that's on just about any riding mower.. They all have the same set-up.
