Briggs 11 HP Vertical Shaft Engine Question......

Recommended Posts

I have an AC T-811 with the 11 HP Briggs engine, float style carb. The problem I am having is that when you open the throttle up for more gas the choke flapper wants to close. The linkage does not appear to be bent and is not binding. Is there any adjustment on that??? Thanks!!!

Yes there is an adjustment. I always do it by bending the choke link so that when the throttle lever is at the top of its throw, the choke is fully closed. The distance between full choke and no choke is usually like 1/2 inch, but some throttle cables are more, some are less. If you mean that the choke is getting sucked shut, then I would look at the spring issue that BLT mentioned. Although, if it is the choke system I am thinking of, then I am not sure how it could suck shut unless it was disconnected from the link. T-811 is a vertical shaft tractor, isn't it? (EDIT- answered my own question there, after reading the thread title!XX()

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
