Briggs and Stratton Governor Linkage Diagrams


Here are the diagrams for the more popular L-head engines. I will post the others as soon as I get them scanned. These images belong to the Briggs and Stratton Corporation. They came from the shop manual, P/N 270962, 1995 Revision.

  • Figure 41 is generally the same setup for all 3.0 to 4.0 HP engines with tank mounted below carburetor. (Classic, Quattro, and Sprint engines)

  • Figure 54 is only model 136200 go kart engine. If you wish to turn a 5 HP chore engine (e.g, tiller or edger engine) into a go kart engine, the pieces marked with an arrow must be purchased. These parts do not come standard on any engine except 136200 model series. (Return Spring, Anchor, and Conduit Anchor.)
  • Figure 53 is generally for generator applications. Turn the nut clockwise to increase RPM and counter clockwise to decrease RPM. For 60 Hz output (US) engine must turn 3600 RPM. For 50 Hz output (Europe) engine must turn 3000 RPM.
