Parts Used:
Governed Idle Spring - 691859
Repair Difficulty:
Medium
Time Spent Repairing:
30-60 minutes
Tools Used:
Pliers, Nutdriver
The B&S engine went to full throttle after starting the mower. The idle was extremely fast.
I had to remove pull rope cover from the top of the engine with the proper nutdriver. This allowed the throttle lever and two governor springs (one large and one small) to be accessible. The small silver spring was broken. I used needle nose pliers to remove the broken spring. I installed the new short silver spring ( part no. C-147, 691859, 29163227) to the throttle lever and lever located above the fuel tank. I installed the two long screws that hold the pull rope cover to engine. I started the engine to see if the idle speed slowed down. The engine did idle at a slower speed. I stopped the engine. I straightened one end of the small spring just a little to allow the idle speed to slow down some more RPM's. The large spring is still good. The repair was easy and my mower idles at the right speed. The engine does not bog down in high grass. The repair took 45 minutes because you must gain access to the throttle lever and springs. There was a small amount of time spent to adjust the spring to reduce engine idle speed for a more economy. The parts came on time and they were correct for my mower.

    better than new
    My parts arrived quickly, they were in OEM packaging to match the OEM diagram, and one had apparently been upgraded. The little B&S classic engine was better than classic! Thank you.
