    Question Briggs 5hp throttle linkage

    This has probably been answered many times on this forum, but I canít find it. Is there a standard practice for converting this type of old push/pull wire throttle linkage ↓ to typical braided cable and return spring?


    Iíve done this conversion on the linear type linkage ↓ using the Briggs kit #692316, but not on the radial type.


    Thanks for any help.

    this a top mount, it does away with the linkage on the bottom....no governor either... http://www.out2win.com/catalog/images/RR4452.jpg
    in some cases it's only original once...in others, unrestored it's a piece of crap forever..

    Was hoping to keep the governor functioning. This there a p/n for that kit?

    Thanks.

    Not that it matters, I guess. But that compression fitting is on backwards.

    The throttle kit posted by others works great and it is a very good value. We've used them on numerous engines (both 3 Hp and 5 HP) and been very satisfied. There is a "head's up", however, that you should be aware of if you are purchasing one of these:
    1. The kit does NOT come with the small Briggs shoulder bolt that secures the bellcrank assembly to the carb (it assumes you already have one I guess). So you will need to purchase one- we got ours at a local mower shop and on Ebay.
    2. The kit does NOT come with the short Briggs linkage/rod that connects from the bellcrank to the throttle plate. Again, you will either have to make one or purchase it separately.
    3. You cannot use these kits with the governor linkage connected- it MUST be removed.
    I thought members would like to know this ahead of time....
