HOW TO Adjust The Engine Speed On A Briggs Quattro Lawn Mower Engine




What do you think about this video?

g scribling: Just kink the straight part of the wire. That way if it's remains adjustable.

John Clarke: Don, I have a new Snapper Ninja muncher with a Briggs 850 engine. It is a constant velocity system that runs at 3,450 RPMS. I would like to convert it to a manual throttle control. Is that possible? It has the bolt to hold the throttle control on the handle bar. The push mower version and the commercial version have a throttle control but not the 7800981 version. I even have the location on the plastic tray on the handle bar to put the throttle control. It appears to be an easy conversion at first blush. What do you think? The reason I want to convert it is because if I engage the transmission I better have my running shoes on.

Andy Freeman: Man $6 for that little governor spring, ugh. Little freakers are expensive. Does anyone know where to get them cheaper?

Uni Sol: Perfect speed Donny! ......

Odulate Emmanuel: my lawn mower is too noise and get over heat easily.
what can I do

surething baby: Dude you're good! The way you adjusted that spring was quick and right on the money. I can't figure out what's wrong with my Briggs push mower. I think it's the governor or carburetor. It worked great for 6 years without a problem. Gradually the last few months the mower's been stalling and now it's reached the point of not even starting unless you open the area with the carburetor and adjust some things. Even then it's still being stubborn.

joel castro: My quattro 4 does not do anything when I move the leaver. I noticed on your video that when you start the engine the governer moves back and puts more tension on the spring semester. Mine just sits the and there is no movement. Could the be something broken on the other side of the governer

Brandon Shreve: What if it revs too which my engine is a Briggs 7.24 the throttle is connected to the governor shaft

Stéphane LHX: Worked perfectly. Thanks for the video !!

Pacer304: Thanks for posting this video. While mowing the lawn with my MTD/Yardman, engine speed suddenly dropped to an idle.  After watching your video and checking the mower, I noticed that the throttle control spring was missing. Lacking the proper replacement part, I used the spring from a ball point pen. The mower started right up and now runs at normal speed.

Erika Bowe: Our's had become disconnected. We were about to take it to a shop. Thank you so much!!!

Chris N: hey dony, do you happen to know the part numbers for those two springs?

Joshua Baker: i have a newer murray lawn mower that is having problems stay running and i am thinking that the throttle is shot would it be best to replace the throttle cable

dntlss: Thanks man, i rebuilt my mower in November last year so i hadn't tried it since, i just went out to mow and i thought all my efforts had been wasted overhauling the beast but then i noticed that spring wasn't doing jack,i actually cut it a little different than you did and of course then it was too tight so i just pulled on it, mower runs like a champ, thanks again!!!!

nixy49: Had the same issue. An easier and quicker way it to simply bend the bracket giving the spring more preload.
I think I must have run into something which bent it in the first place.

ns671fr: you can also lower rpm by stretching the bigger spring to make it loose correct?

Bali *: thanks for your video it was very helpful 👍 👍 👍 👍

0011clem raptor: don't you have a throttle on the bars ?

Athos aimbere Cardozo Bet: very very good!!

danny li: This video was made in 2012 its 2017 now. thank you for sharing this and YouTube... I have the same mower and same problem will try this and hope it works. The shop I go to charges $25 to look at it and if this is the problem they will charge just to do what the video did.
