Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Runaway governor problems are caused by 2 things. Either there is a broken spring somewhere on the linkages / a linkage has become un-hooked due to a broken spring or the governor itself has thrown a flyweight inside the engine. Most of the time it is a broken spring or disconnected linkage. If you would kindly provide me with an engine number and MAKE / brand; I can probably come up with a manual to help you. I will be watching for your response with the engine make and model number.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have one of these beasts on an old go kart, governor is broken or something, rebuilt it a couple years ago, I have picked some bolts and such off it, have a brand new carb pretty much, what exactly do you need? It was a strong running engine, but at this point it's too dangerous for the kids and I'm done dealing with it.

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.
