Question Lawn mower throttle spring

Is there any trick to making it strong again?

It was 94 in TX today and yesterday, and so I decided to work on my 2 lawnmowers and get them ready for the spring.

The throttle was kinda weak on one, I turned the throttle sping all the way and it was weak, I took the mower apart and pushed the spring together, and fixed one of the ends as it was almost ready to bend off

Perhaps if the metal was a little thicker or something or maybe if I could find a place in town that sold just the spring without all the other parts

What brand engine? Horse power? Any small engine shop should sell what you need, or order it.

A weak spring will always be weak unless you have a way to temper it to factory specifications and then it just isn't worth the time when you can buy a new one for a couple bucks. Post back with the brand engine and the ID numbers of such.

Briggs? Tecumseh? Otherwise, like puey said, the springs are gonna be cheap, just about for any other engine as well.
