SOURCE: Briggs and Stratton 17HP Intek Governer Overspeeds

Can you Regulate the Engine Speed Using the Governor Arm? If Yes, then Reset the Governor. **To Reset the Governor; Loosen the Governor Arm Bolt and Turn the Governor Shaft Clockwise Until it Stops. Using the Governor Arm Hold the Carburetor to Full Throttle. Now with the Shaft Full Clockwise and the Governor Arm and Carburetor Held at Full Throttle, Tighten the Governor Arm Bolt. If the Engine Still Runs Full Throttle, then Reverse the Rotation of the Governor Shaft, but Still Hold the Carburetor at Full Throttle with the Governor Arm. If it Still Runs at Full Throttle, then Check the Internal Governor.** If you Can Not Regulate the Engine Speed Using the Governor Control Arm, then Check the Carburetor Throttle Valve. If the Throttle Control Valve (sometimes called a Flap or Plate) Mounting Screws Came Out of the Control Valve, then you will have No Control Over the Engine Speed. Send me the Model and Type or Spec Numbers Off the Engine, Please. With these I can Locate the Proper Manual and Better Assist you. **The Throttle Cable Attaches to the Throttle Control Bracket. The Cable Moves a Slide that Moves a Pivot. The Pivot has the Spring Attached to it and to the Governor Arm. The Solid Link Connects to the Governor Arm and goes to the Throttle Shaft on the Carburetor. When the Throttle Cable is Moved it Moves the Pivot and the Pivot Pulls the Spring. The Spring Pulls the Governor Arm and the Governor Arm Moves the Throttle Shaft. Usually the Spring is in the Lower Hole in the Governor Arm and the Solid Link is in the Top Hole of the Governor Arm.** If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance. Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens

SOURCE: OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS FOR SOVEREIGN/MOUNTFIELD COMPACT RIDER LAW

I see that is a British machine. I've looked everywhere and it seem they do not have operator's manuals online. Your best bet is call the manufacture in England. It seem they don't have any American distributors. The number is 0-845-600-3207. The 0 is the country code and you'll need to dial it. If you get an operator they can help. I've never called England so good luck.

SOURCE: is there an oil filter on a Briggs/Stratton riding lawn mower. Model#42A700

Yes there is a spin on oil filter. Depending on the date code when the motor was built there are two possibilities. The easiest way is to measure the length of the filter, If the filter is 2 1/4" long the Part Number is 492932.
If the filter is 3 1/4" long, the Part Number is 491056.

Cant get my mountfield lawn mower started, it is petrol and i have primed it by pressing the pump button as per the instructions on the mower. there doesnt seem to be any resistance when i pull the start...


make sure there is a spark plug in. that would be 1 reason why there is no resistance when you pull the cord. if there is a spark plug in then check to see if there is a clunking sound when you pull the cord if this is the case then the engine has a broken conecting rod..good luck

No such thing exists - but you can get an Operator's Manual for the engine if it's a Briggs & Stratton, direct fron the Briggs web site.

Bckfired, died and will not start.


Check the flywheel key. Sometimes a backfire can cause the key to break and the flywheel to lose its position on the crankshaft which will change the timing.

Change the Oil


the easiest way would be to purchase a manually pump up oil change device that draws a vacuum and you put the tube from that device in the oil fill hole and draw it out to its own container
