HOW TO ADJUST THE ENGINE RPM'S ON A BRIGGS AND STRATTON ENGINE




What do you think about this video?

Marshall Border: Thanks

Creeperboy and friends: Is 3.2k rpm the maximum safe speed for this engine, or can it go higher? I am adapting one of these engines to a go kart, and I’d like to know about this.

Paul Triplett: Thank you.

Davide Formica: Thank you for the tip! Very much appreciated!

Fabricio balladares: Socks

Darrell Lark: Thank you for this info. Just finished rebuilding my B&S small engine carburetor. Put everything back together and noticed that it seemed to be revving up. Now I know what to adjust.

Rob Weaver: Hi, Tx for your video. My push mower with same engine suddenly had a loss of power that I thought was due to lack of gas. I filled the almost dry tank and when i got it started it ran at half power. After your video i did the same adjustment as you showed and there was no difference in engine performance and when the engine was killed there was a bit of a backfire. Since this problem began I have changed the air filter and replaced the sparkplug. Mower is still very difficult to start and often backfires when it doesn't turn over. Do you have any suggestions? Tx much

John & Jodie Alpers: Yup. I adjusted the governor and it sped up. I'll get the blade sharpened and we should be ready to go. Thanks for the video.

Michael Strane: Very helpful video.  I just replaced the carburetor so I had to remove and replace that governor spring.  I knew it had a purpose but had no idea what it was.  My mower was running slow after the carb installation, and I am sure after watching this video that the spring needs adjustment.  Can't wait to get home it out.  Thanks again.

KJCP: Thank you!

Revolutions: I have 2 screw mixture screws. I'm trying to get the rpms up, one is near the bowl other is for governer. No matter how much i play with the govenor related screw it doesn't reach rpms. Tried adjusting them both. Think the bowl one is for fuel and the govenor one is for regulating the govenor, any advice?

Robert Corona: I have the same mower new carb starts up fine but after it’s all warmed up it surges until it turns off can you help? I do notice the throttle body opens and closes quiet a bit when it’s about to die

dee s: i changed the carb diaphragm, air filter, spark plug, oil and gas. the cord was stuck was what prompted the repairs. the mower ran hard, but I was able to adjust the governer flap. it still ran a little hard, but i mowed anyway since my yard is small. one of the repair guys here on youtube made it sound like running a little hard is okay. when i turned it off after i quick cut my grass, it was smoking just a little. the next time i tried to mow, the mower wouldn't start at all. is it too late to have hope for it?

Brandon Bayan: This video got me going......big thanks

Jason Voorhees: my pressure washer didn't start after a few years in storage. I removed the jet on top of the carb while cleaning. it now revs high & smokes I may have put weed eater gas but I drained that best I could. could the jet I removed make it rev high & burn rich?

Rick Morgan: Thank you so much for this video. It made a big difference to me!

Lalocep21: Wth, where are the comments?

SuperAwesomeGuy: Damn cicadas

Laura Lambrecht: I was so happy to find this video to help me with my mower RPM problem. I did what you suggested and the mower started to run very nicely for about 10 min. Then it died and I can't get it started at all again. It seems like it isn't getting fuel now. Help! Did I mess up the carburator?

Dan Brust: Thank you I had the exact problem and you helped me fix it!!!
