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




What do you think about this 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

Bob Sinclar: Hello, is it a two stroke engine ?

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

0011clem: 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.

Jayden Lawson: Perfect - exactly the advice I needed!

godless life: i have a brigs from the 80s i can run it full rev over an hr

Joseph Jenne jr: thanks man, am good with a wrench but was clueless to this. spark plug, oil change and air filter along with a spring clip and I have a new mower. thanks again

Fred Leisentritt: Thank you sir!
My lawn mower at camp started running erratically after going through some bushes. Your video showed me how to adjust the throttle but I also realized that something must have bent the metal attachment the spring was attached to and when I straightened that out it ran much better. Then I gave it just a nudge to bring it up from the factory setting.
Thanks very much!

Rudayy65: Donyboy73, you are the man, you saved me money. Thank you Sir!

GPglider: Thank You! Helped me with my Briggs &Stratton MDT

Tarzan Ape: what does the little plastic arm do that is attached to the small spring. not the throttle body - I get that.

richardsaddress: What is a connecting rod?
What's it connecting?
