Recommended Posts

Hi I'm putting this thing back together. Bought it early last summer. It was neglected outside for 8-10 years.... Various things were tampered with ect... Anyway, I am not sure where the carb end of the throttle cable connects? Seems stange, but I can't put my finger on it. I've included pics. I have the cable in there on a whim. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi guys. Great info. Are you saying there should be 2 nuts on the top of the throttle rod? I have briefed over the setup in the manual. Guess I'd better look it over more closely since I will have to set one of them for sure! Working through the wiring harness tonight. Mice had chewed thru almost every wire. Not a problem. The wires are old and brittle. New won't hurt anything. Appreciate your help and comments. My biggest worries are if the rearend is any good. I've not owned a hydro. This one is pretty rusty. I have been soaking things with WD-40 most any chance I get. Might be OK. Need the engine running though.... Thanks again. Rick

You need the bottom nut to hold a true stopping point for high no load idle speed of 3600 RPM's. You don't need to nut above the bracket unless you desire to create a governed low idle speed. This is really not necessary on these tractors and normally you would would set a static idle speed on the carburetor.

Any briggs I have ever seen has two nuts just like in the pictue. Yours is the only one that i have seen that doesn`t have the second nut. I would just spend the 50 cents for the nut and set the bottom nut at 3600 rpm`s.
