I have a Briggs and Stratton engine model 135292-0141-01 and it was running wide open (full throttle) tried and tried to adjust the governor after all was lost I removed the side case to find the padel end of the governor crank broke right off the gears and everything else looks good could not find any other metal pieces in the engine so I plan to replace it does anyone know how this installs or hopefully have a diagram any how any help will be greatly appriciated. Thanks in advance your friend Phil.

Thanks but I found it.

It should be installed with the engine crankshaft in the horizontal position and the governor crank should be hanging straight down when installing the side case. Then install all the linkages and adjust.

Thanks for looking.

It sounds like you know your way around an engine. The only thing I can think of, is to make sure you perform the static adjustment before starting the engine.

Best of Luck...

Locate the governor shaft where it comes out of the engine block. Loosen the arm that is attached to the shaft. Hold the throttle on the carburetor to the wide open position and note which direction the arm attached to the governor shaft moves. While holding the throttle wide open rotate the governor shaft in the same direction it would turn to open the throttle, turn it until it stops. Tighten the arm back down to the governor shaft. Thats the procedure for making the static adjustment on any internal governor, horizontal or vertical.
