How to set goveners

As a rule there is a rod that runs from the governor arm to the carb throttle plate arm, sometimes there is a lot of holes to choose from to put that rod into. For most mowing type settings you push the throttle wide open on the carb and push the governor arm all the way full throttle and connect the rod by using whatever hole will let you or bend the rod to get into a hole. Your throttle cable will be connected to the governor arm with a spring ,this will allow the governor arm to swing back and forth to hold a steady RPM that you selected with your throtle cable. In a non mowing application like generators, the voltage output is regulated by the RPM so it would be adjusted by using a voltmeter and setting the governor to get 120 volts 60 cycle at the plug in, In the USA. Without the make and model it is hard to do more then talk theory but if you're handy this info will help.

Renew throttle senser

you will see a small arm where the sensor goes into thortlebody, use your hand to open the throtle to see which way arm moves, you will look at sensor rear and see that arm, use a screwdriver to see how it moves and springs back. you want that arm on throtlebody to go on with tension. so get hole close then push on and turn to line hole up, this way there a small movement of sensor.

I need to how to connect the throttle to the carb on a briggs and stratton riding mower a diagram would be great.

Don't have a diagram. It's pretty simple, tho.

There is a throttle cable run from the throtle control lever on the dash down to the carburetor. There is a lever on the carburetor -- usually this has a hole in it where the end of the throttle cable hooks.

There should be a clamp in that vicinity to hold down the throttle cable housing to allow the cable inside to move back and forth without moving the cable housing,
