1 Answer

Govener over reves engine for no reason. Tecumseh 8HP Model TVM195 150220F On a Snapper riding mower Model 3080S. Just replaced the carburetor P/N632991. Engine will idle if I push in the govener lever on the engine, but when I let go it pulls the throttle control on the carburetor wide open. I dont know what cause this? I can disconect the govener linkage from the carburetor and install two seperate controls for the choke and the throttle.

Sounds to me like the throttle linkage is upside down.

SOURCE: tecumseh 8 hp problems

I had exactly the same problem, I tried to clean the carb several times without any luck. I gave up on the carb as it was an EPA style without adjustable mixture needles. Bought a new carb for it, installed it and the engine fired up right away. Took me 10min to let it warm up and dial the mixture, it has been fine ever since.

I recommend to buy the replecement carb old-new stock mfg pn: 632334A Tecumseh Carburetor with mixture needles

This place helped me out with one.

If you want a 'drop-in' replacement, you will HAVE to source a carb that was fitted as original equipment. Following the demise of Tecumseh's engine division, supply is limited to 'old stock', but there is fair spares aqvailability at present. A newer 'primer start' carb will fit, but you will have to remove all the choke operating mechanism. Don't fit a carb from a larger or smaller engine - the mixture will be wrong, and the engine will never run properly.

Lawn mower will not stay cranked unless you keep pouring gas into


common problems to all older lawnmower, lots of dirt and dust the mower goes through and ages. I would first start by taking the carb apart and clean the filter with soap and water, allow it to air dry. also carburetor prob need rebuilding or replacing. Pick up some Carburetor cleaner at any auto part store and spay it down the carb, dont be afraid to spray allot in there and let it dry for 1/2 and hours. carb tend wear and parts need replacing just like any engines. 99% of the time lawn mower carb goes out before the engine will and common problems with all lawn mower. If you not mechanical incline or dont want to rebuilt it, just buy the whole new carb and replace it, fairly cheap easy to replace and will last you another 10 + years or more. www.briggsandstratton.com

Snapper mower electric start problem


On most mowers, that red wire will connect to the battery. that could be your problem.
you didn't say if it is a rider or not, or how old it is.
Touch the wire to positive post on the battery, with the key off, remove quickly if it sparks.
if no spark, hold it to the battery while turning the key.
if the engine tries to start, connect it permanently.
