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




What do you think about this video?

TIM HAYES: hello, i have a craftsman rider mower with a (ic gold 14.5 briggs and stratton ) and it will run if i put gas into the intake but then dies, i have cleaned the carburetor once already but it still wont work. I believe it has something to do with the solenoid on the bottom of the float bowel but i may be wrong. do you have any ideas about what to try next? and also if it turns out its shot then where can i find the carburetor parts or rebuild kits for sale cheap? 

thanks a lot ,
p.s...your videos are great keep em coming !!

Ruthven Clement: simple demo, thanks.

888Jermae: Thank you so much for this very informative video.  It helped me a lot.  Blessings.

2bellaterra: Hi Donyboy. great videos. i recently cleaned the carb on my lawnboy silver series, and after i reassembled it im having trouble getting the rmp wright. can you tell me what to look for when setting the rpm without a tach? i know you probly just do it by your ear but is there some simple way to make sure im not reving it too high? thanks for your knowledge .

Robertsack100: Hello, Aah it´s notperfect. At first you have to adjust the range of the Lever itself, so that the whole way does Change the spring Tension. Then, in the second step you have to adjust the spring Tension for the max throttle Position of the Lever by simple bend the metalt this Point where the spring is connected, not more.

LinhTinhQuai: Hi I have FJ180V
I try to the but rpm is still same please help

Trucker1363: hey man im just wondering i have the same mower i did a small repair on but the spring is all mangled from the owner not taking care if it. would you have any videos of where the springs hook up underneath the cover? & where could i get a new spring i tried looking on the makers site but they only go by part number and theres no number on the spring. any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

uglyman spasm: Yes!!  20 minutes ago my mower would not even stay running in 3 inch grass!   I clipped the spring and now it's plowing thru the 6 inch stuff with no trouble and the idle is not too high either.  Thank you. 

anniversary4: hey Donyboy,

sometimes I think I am certifiably luny..I am hooked on your youtube videos; watching them till 2 or 3AM on a regular basis. You do a great job and are very articulate and knowledgeable as well. In any case I take serious note of your cautions about not setting engines to rev too high. What is the best source for determining factory recommended hi rev levels? Any single doc for this?

Michael Mantion: I just bend the straight part of the spring with 2 needle nose pliers, takes about 10 seconds. if you want it even shorter bend it more or in a couple spots.

knightrider1545: Will the spark plug get fouled or bad when you manually take the running engine to full throttle, past mfg throttle setting?

Cory Batzer: None of that was necessary because briggs and stratton designed it to be adjusted by bending the linkage to decelerate and accelerate rpms

Michael Lofrano: does the lever need to be set manually initially or does the spring totally control it?

q13855: Hi DonyBoy. I have a 3,5hp classic that seems to run at about double rpm as what it is supposed to , no matter if I shut the throttel. Is there anything else than the linkage you show on the video that I need to play with?

Kevin Isam: Hey,donyboy73 is it possable to put a push mower engine on a ride on? im thinking of buying a ride on without a engine, the two problems i can think of is how to control the throttle and how i would get the key to work, id turn the key to on then pull, any ideas? i know slight electrical. and for the throttle would i hook the "wire" to the spot the spring is on the govener in thos vid? or do i hook it somewhere else, ANY info is fully accepted and a video would be VERY helpful

gertwarringa: Great tutorials !

L P: 2 possibilities , blocked jets , causing need for a richer mixture or check gaskets , you could have a vacuum leak , closing the choke is blocking the additional air source , depends if its running lean or rich

tidymanr: Excellent video...I didn't know you could do this...I would have just bought a new spring and wasted money. You are the man!!!

john oxley: m8 trust me you do it the hard way on the spring just bend the metal tip that the spring connects to and then fix the speed to the high setting job don

DYAC: My friend's business did extremely well with adwords. He basically pay google to put his promotion ads on varies websites and the conversion rate is really high. I guess it helps since he sells gag/prank gifts and his ads get display on funny autocorrect websites. He wouldn't tell me the exact amount, but I'm estimating it is near the mid 6-figure salary. No risk no rewards I guess.
