3hp Briggs Air Vane Govenor

I have a little problem with a 3hp briggs that is on an
leaf shredder attachement for my lawn tractor.

Heres the story as my friend told it. While using the leaf
attachment the blower housing fell off and the motor
quit running. Appartentally the Air vane gov. fell of also
but I did not figure this out until it was too late.

So, I need a new air vane gov piece and the linkage that goes
with it. I could also use a picture of two of how this all goes
back together. Where would I find said stuff ??

There are no numbers on this engine anywhere.

You can find info on Briggs engines here http://www.briggsandstratton.com/display/router.asp?DocID=64103
Perhaps locate the #'s or contact Briggs directly. Info for both is on their site.

The Model, Type, and Code numbers should be stamped on the blower shroud at the cylinder end.

The numbers Cheese mentioned may be rusted over and you may need a piece of emery cloth to sand down the area near the cylinder head of the blower shroud in order to expose these numbers. Without them, it will be nearly impossible to get you exactly what you need.
