Question about Garden

1 Answer

Briggs & Stratton Intek 6hp mower engine (121682-0122-E1) runs at high rpm after pulling the head to fix a cross-threaded spark plug. Governor linkage and carb look fine, but obviously something is wrong. I did loosen the bolt connecting the governor linkage to the shaft going into the crankcase. Does the shaft need to be in a particular position when the linkage is tightened up again?

Yes, in a word. You can riobably rotate the position and find the correct by trial and error. You might be able to feel the roughly correct position by throttling the engine down and feel the action of the shaft.

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.

Lawn mower won't start


to check for firing remove the spark plug insert it in the plug boot and pull the rope while watching to see if the plug sparks be carefull not to touch the plug electrode while pulling the rope or it will shock you. If you don't have a spark, try a different plug. If still no spark the coil could be bad.

Back firing, load engine noise, engine skip


Could use more info but here are some things u can check--Plug wire grounding to block, old spark plug--check head bolts for correct torque--carb adjustment or jet plugged-governor linkage not hooked up or improper adjustment of governor--if these are good then it could be internal--bad valves and valve adjustment--timing gears
