Questions & Answers

What's the right governor spring for My Briggs & Stratton model 135202 type 1259 E1 code 971029 YA. This is my log splitter and only # on tag.
Ron asked on 2018-09-20
Hello Ron, thank you for your question. There are two springs that are coming up under the model information. The Spring-Governor (Blue) Part Number: 690549 and the Governor Spring LINK Part Number: 690498. The springs are visually quite different and one is red and the other blue. I'm not sure exactly which one you need, but both are listed on your model information parts lists. I hope this helps!
