If you have the Model, Type and Code off of the engine flywheel housing you can go to www.partstree.com and put it in on the Briggs and Stratton Engine Brand.   You have to scroll down to the lower part of the page. This should direct you to the correct engine and from there you can select what part of the engine you are needing help with. It will show you a diagram of how the parts go back together.

How to put spring back on carburetor on murray 5 hp push mower?


Hard say exactly without model of engine, but on most small briggs engines is as follows. One end of the spring will hook into the loop of the linkage wire that connects the governor to the carburetor butterfly and the other end will hook into to O of the throttle plate. Thus as you move your throttle plate to increase your engine rpm it applies more tension on the spring opening the governors up and vise versa when moved to lower your rpm's. Hope this helps.

Need a replacement on-off switch for a DeVilbiss GB5000-2 generator


My switch broke as well. Instead of trying to find one, I removed it, and mounted a heavy duty toggle switch on the front of the shroud, just below the original location. Connect the original wire to one side of the switch, and a wire connected to a good ground to the other side. Btw, the off position on the toggle switch is run, and the on is now off. This repair has served me for years.

We have a 6.25 /Briggs & Straton we have cleaned


You should have two fuel lines going from the carb to the tank, one has a filter,

make sure both lines are good without any breaks or cracks. if the filter is dirty

you may need to replace it. you can fish it out of the gas tank by making a hook

on a wired coat hanger, try to remove the filter and put the line back in the tank

make sure they are both submerged, if it runs just replace the filter, good luck!

The engine starts ok but it keeps revving up and down, as though its about to conk out, although, so far, it hasn't. It has also started to blow out some white smoke? I have changed the spark plug - but...


Your Briggs & Stratton has a Sprint or Classic motor on it. Every few years, the diaphragm in the carburetor must be replaced.
Briggs part #495770

1. Remove the air filter assembly. This is a good time to clean and re-oil the filter.
2. Remove the 3/8" head bolt from the front of the fuel tank.
3. Remove the 1/2" head bolt from the side of the fuel tank.
4. Gently pull the fuel tank assembly toward you and tilt it away from you. While doing this, you will need to unhook the governor wire from the throttle plate.
5. Drain the gasoline (you can use it again later)
6. Remove the 5 screws that hold the carburetor on top of the fuel tank.
7. Pull the carb straight up. Be careful not to lose the spring or strainer on the bottom of the carb.
8. Remove the diaphragm.
9. Clean the carb and tank surfaces with carb cleaner spray.
10. Open the package with the new diaphragm in it. You will find 2 pieces. One is rubber, the other is paper.
11. Place the rubber diaphragm onto the fuel tank, then the paper one. Gently reinstall the carb onto the tank.
12. Push the 5 screws back into the carb. Before you tighten any of the screws, have all 5 pushed through and wiggle the carb a little, this will allow the diaphragm to align properly. Tighten the screws.
13. Reinstall the tank/carb assembly. Make sure you hook up the governor linkage.
14. Inspect the governor spring(s). They should be connected on both ends. You should not disconnect them for this repair.
15. Reinstall the air filter, gas, prime, and GO!

Good Luck!

Motor runs wide open when set @ slow speed


It could be that the governor spring has become disconnected or has broken on an end where it hooks onto the throttle linkage. If the spring is OK & throttle linkage is not binding it could mean the governor drive inside the engine has failed preventing the governor from operating correctly. You may need to take the engine to a mechanic to fix the problem.
