16hp Briggs Governor problem

Recommended Posts

I have a 16hp Briggs in the Homelite T16S I bought. Problem is I can't get the governor to work right. Either it is always at idle or full RPM (not for long don't want to blow it up!!!). The adjustment procedure in the briggs manual is not to clear to me. I know on the Kohler twins you rotate the shaft one direction and then the lever the other to set the governor. Any tricks like this for the Briggs. Or do I have to tear it down and replace the weights/gear? Any thoughts? Thanks GregB

I believe that has a 2 pc flo-jet carb. The main fuel jet screws up from the bottom half and goes into a hole in the top half. If the jet is not seated into the hole in the top half, you will have the problem that you describe. I know this from first hand experience.

      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
