Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Download this manual first:

See 37 for the governor spring and linkages.

SOURCE: tecumseh engine #143.985510 - carb linkage hook-up

Hello:

The Carbuertor Throttle is Held in the Full Open Position Until the Engine is Started and Running, then the Governor and Spring Work together to Keep the Engine RPMs to the Desired Setting.
The Following is an Explaination on How the Governor System on Small Engines Function.
>>The Governor System behaves like an Unending Tug of War between One of Two Governor Springs, which Pull the Throttle Toward the Open Position, and a Spinning Crankshaft, which Tries to Close the Throttle. When the Load on the Engine Increases - a Typical Example is when you Move your Running Lawn Mower from the Driveway to the Grass - Crankshaft Revolutions Drop. But the Governor Spring is Still Tugging, Causing the Throttle Plate to Open. In Response, a Larger Volume of Air-Fuel Mixture Enters the Carburetor, Increasing Engine Speed to Compensate for the Increased Load. The Crankshaft Speeds Up, and the Tug of War Resumes, until a New Equilibrium is Achieved. With Each Change in Load, the Tension Between the Governor Spring and the Load Brings about a New Equilibrium, known as the Engine's Governed Speed. Neither Side Wins until the Engine is Shut Off. At that Point, without the Crankshaft Spinning, the Governor Spring Pulls the Throttle to the Wide-Open Position. Two Types of Governors are Common on Small Engines - Mechanical and Pneumatic.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, 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, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck

Respectfully

Hook the wire that goes to the governor to the butterfly on the carby , the other should go to the choke.

How do you assemble the two springs on a sprint 375 briggs and stratton ?


The ends of both springs hook at the loop of the metal linkage connecting the governor vane and throttle shaft. The other end of the small spring hooks onto a small upright plate approximately 1 inch towards to the front of hooked end of the spring. The longer spring hooks onto a large hole in the throttle plate.
A problem that does occur is the plate becomes bent when the mower us pushed under shrubs. This drops the speed of the mower to a low idle. If this is the case then with a pair of pliers, gently twist that metal plate to obtain a RPM setting of 3,100. Don't be tempted to increase the revs to much or the conrod will break and punch a hole through the engine block.

Be careful - running ungoverned will quickly destroy the engine. Look at the carburetor throttle lever. There should be two linkages attached -- one from the manual throttle lever, another from the governor. The linkage to the governor is usually a spring. Perhaps that came off or broke, or a foreign object is wedged in there.

go to sears.com and look up the actual engine number. they have a section for lawn and garden and in there there is a link to their parts lookup and they are very detailed. but you will need a pulse tach to set the govenor back to where it was and if it spun the govenor open too far due to the govenor not being hooked up, it could have came apart inside the motor and you will need to take it to a shop. as far as setting the govenor once you get it all back together, you need to push the throtle wide open and turn the govenor shaft in the same direction then tighten it down. yeah its not hard if you have done it before but if you havent and cant understand what i just said, save your time, and engine and have a shop fix it. and i havent seen a motor in my 9+ years that you had to remove all of that to fix a recoil rope.

I will try again here.
1 wire link from the top hole in the governor arm to the throttle on the carb. There should also be a wire link with a spring that goes from the Governor arm to the speed control handle.

The easiest thing for you to do is look at another mower that has a single cylinder Briggs at how the linkage is set up. They will all be the same linkage from 12 hp- 20 hp.
