Top of my head I don't know but if you will post your model type and code numbers from your engine I will be happy to try and look it up.

I have looked at the parts list and owners manual but the positions are not shown. Other than that I cannot find any info. Thanks a lot for any help.

I have had similar problems with B&S classic's there can be several configurations depending upon the application. I have always gone to a store that sells a mower with a similar setup and remove the air filter to see how the springs are attached. This has been the quickest solution I have found. Have a good one.

Just to add some confusion to the process the springs have a different tension per application and they are no color, white, green, light blue and pink. Have a good one. Geo
