Governor Problems

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of rebuilding a 10hp horizontal B&S #243431 0627-02 7605171. When I tore down the motor the governor was in the bottom of the oil pan in about a million pieces. I purchased a new governor (393720 gear-governor) and put it on the shaft in the engine. The shaft in the engine does not appear to be long enough to accept the governor and cup. The cup does not slide over the shaft at all. Can somone tell me: 1. Did the parts place give me the right governor assy for the motor? 2. Does the cup have to fit over the shaft? 3. Does someone have a motor tore down and can tell me what is the shaft length supposed to be? I have been through all of the resources I know of looking for diagrams and measurements to no avail. Any help you could provide me would be greatly appreciated. I can't wait to get the Landlord back on the lawn. Regards, GR_Made

As I read my Briggs and Stratton parts diagram for your engine I read the following " ref. no 219 Gear Assy Governor part no 393720 used after code no 78061901, Note: part no. 291192 Gear Assy. governor used before code no. 78062001. So in my opinion you were given the wrong part. Those 2 part numbers are the only 2 listed for that engine. I hope this helps, obviously once you have the correct part things will look better. Good luck Al

      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
