12 HP Briggs Governer springs

Recommended Posts

Magoo
I Have a 12 HP Briggs on a 3012 I am just wondering if It is supposed to have two springs on the governor like it shows in the picture Mine only has the one between #5&6 On the lever. And If so where can i get one. And what ill effect would it have on performance. This is the origanal engine. Thanks Guy?

Hi Guy, my 12 does have the two springs. They are both the almost the same. The one on the left seems to help push the gov. back into the down position. I have seen them in the Foley-Belsaw catalogues...

This is where I got the information on these engines. Look down the right hand side of the page for B&S. Very helpful for me. I build log homes. So These tractors are just my hobby & and Back savers.^ [url][/url]http://www.simpletractors.com/Main/operation.htm Guy

The spring on the right side of the govenor arm (as per Guys, blow-up), fits into a little clip on the back of the arm, that keeps it from pushing out, and it seems to help push the arm back down. When I first looked at it, I wondered how can this spring be doing anything, the tension seems to be going in the wrong direction for such a light spring. But, it obviously is doing a little work.

I went to the dealer today with some numbers for him so he could look up the spring. He said the one in between number 5 and 6 is just for governed idle. But he had the one I needed. So Thanks for the help. Guy

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
