Awesome, do you know if they sell linkage kits, or spring kits? Pretty much all the "extra parts" are gone

Can't find anything about kits on there, but try this: https://outdoorpowerdirect.com/pages...6A1/28050010/y
A lot of the parts look generic, and even then, with common sense and guidance, you should be able to rig a throttle up yourself.

If you go to the Briggs and stratton web site (http://www.briggsandstratton.com/na/...r-engines.html) you may be able to find the parts/diagram/etc. you're looking for. I did the same with an old BS 5hp. Hope this helps.

These older threads might shed some light on the issue:

You are missing the tank mounted engine control "quadrant" which utilizes one slide lever for the choke and another lever for the on/off kill switch.
EDIT: You're also missing about two carb mounting screws. Best to have those installed to plug the holes and prevent leaks.

It's not absolutely necessary but I think the choke control & linkage is very useful for keeping the choke plate from flopping around and closing while you're on the throttle.

You're also missing a steel 'L' shaped bell-crank and a thicker rod that connects to it and to the governor control under the tank but for go kart use, I don't think it's needed at all. That rod is for connecting to a stationary throttle linkage that pivots on the side of the carb, like on a roto tiller where you set the speed and leave it.

If you're still using the governor, what you need are the related throttle control pieces & return spring that are situated under the tank. Do you have them?



Lastly, if you wanna ditch the governor for some real fun, I have a setup in mind that ditches all those rods and levers and uses the Briggs Raptor racing style throttle.

I’m thinking that if you showed us the gas tank and carburetor (as a unit) removed from the engine, we could determine what parts you needed to return it to factory condition.

Show us the portion under the gas tank too, where the governor-to-throttle linkage resides.
I might have the parts you need, for free, if you pay for shipping.
