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 !
1Maxoverload: 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
CraftinmineralMc: Is it bad that my spring was so weak that I had cut 6 loops out of the spring to get it to run at a decent speed?
PhilQ1000: Hi Dony, I have an older Tecumseh HS50 on an MTD snow blower. I just cleaned the carb (and actually went over the carb twice). It starts and runs good, but only on 1/2-choke. When I open the choke fully, it dies. Any suggestions? Thanks Phil Q- Pittsburgh, PA
donyboy73: it's not recommended because the oil dipper is different on a vertical engine and the carb would have to mounted horizontally
Marclugar Mkw: Hey Donyboy73!
I possess also a Briggs & Stratton lawnmower (sprinting 375) but I wanted to ask if it is possible to convert a horizontal axis because I have a plastic fuel like you but it is connected to a spring and unregulateur
Mower Man: 100 likes says everything. Love your mower vids.!
Randi Del Cecato: Hi Dony, I alway thought that Briggs made a bad decision on putting the carb on top of the tank, they go through 2 many diaphrams and gaskets! Randi.
Tom Ellson: Ok thanks also I changed the oil had no idea what was in the machine befor but I've put sa 10w30 but it had started smoking and giving off a funny smell SOS for all the pestering comments
donyboy73: no but jeremyfountain a youtuber has i think
Tom Ellson: Have you done a vid o how to adjust it because I'm new to restoring mower I know some bits but not enough sorry if I'm a pain
donyboy73: you may need to adjust the governor on the engine
Tom Ellson: It dosent run fast enough and dosent start right
Tom Ellson: the promblem is the mower runs but not high enough to cut the grass i had it running with new oil earlyer and it had smoke coming from under neath the engine( affter i adjuted the carb ) ive replaced the throtel cable to see if it would work any better but the revs are no higer i adjusted the carb ive posted some vids off it so if you wanted to see whats happening you could have a look
donyboy73: can u tell me the prob again
Tom Ellson: hi donyboy73 i assked you about my honda hr 194 on my other account but it wont let me on so ive posted it on my other one named it (honda mower problem reply donyboy73)so if you can help tht would be good ive only just started restoring mowers wiv help frm ur vids but this one i cant get running properly if i lived in canada i would bring it down but im in uk so would appreciate help

smallengineshop: Good trick for getting your go-cart or mini bike to go a little faster.
donyboy73: high speed steel or titanium coated should do, don't spin the drill too fast
Dnuccio95ZJ: Hey dony, i have a husquvarna mower in the shop with a honda gcv160 engine. it runs, but it runs really really fast. ive replaced both throttle springs with brand new OEM parts. linkage is not binding. what could be causing this?
1972FordF150: Looks like the crankshaft is a bit bent lol
donyboy73: oh yes thanks, this is just one way of doing it
jeffy0807: @donyboy73, the easier way to adjust the revs is to bend the tag that you took the spring off towards the front of the engine, if you didn't already know
kodibass: Nice before & after, procedure! great vid!!
sugerbear520: Thanks for the info!
donyboy73: you can use a tachometer for small engines or some auromotive ones work too
donyboy73: you need a new cylinder kit, the oil only bring up the compression reading but does not restore it
outdoorsman310: good video dony!
POLOLOUS3: I have a demo cut off saw, 14" gas 2 stroke. It was hard to start and run for awhile. Took it apart, compression reads 40 psi, heard if you put oil in spark plug hole for a couple days, will help restore some compression? Should I just order cylinder/piston?
POLOLOUS3: Do you use anything to test actual rpms, and if so what?
donyboy73: there should be an oil plug under the engine to dump it out
tivon3: I made a mistake and poured Ford engine oil into my Lawnmower and now it won't start. I'm guess since I poured it out and put the correct oil in it still does not want to start. So I had to resort to using my weed-whacker to cut the grass and boy was that grueling. Do you think I need to bring the Lawnmower to the shop and let a specialist look at because I don't have the tools to correctly asses the problem sense it's impossible to get all the oil out by just dumping it over.
kx80moto: quick n easy fix nice vid dony
donyboy73: thanks you!
Micheal Gabriel: i always look forward to watching donyboys videos !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
donyboy73: the blade wasn't balanced
siemenstraffic: I notice the that mower was vibrating quite a bit, was it a bent blade or a bent crackshaft?
ethan carter: youneed to replace the governor spring
Vet: When I graduated High School, all I wanted to do was kick back and relax without having to do any homework. But I realized I have no money to do anything fun. So I went to a San Francisco Vet School to get trained to make money. But seeing your videos, I am gonna be an internet marketer on the side. Let me know if you have any tips. Thanks.
