Briggs governor spring location

I had to remove the tank mounted carburetor and tank on a 5hp Briggs Model 130212 Type 3112-01 Code 89080307. The governor linkage is mounted between the tank and the block. A small spring went flying when the tank came loose, and I did not see how it was connected in the first place, and cannot figure out where it goes now that I am in re assembly. Any body got a diagram or picture out there?

Briggs Governor Spring location

I think only one of your sets of diagrams came thru, but we are really close. I am pretty sure that the spring was attached to the tank assembly AND to the governor assembly on the side of the engine. The spring as very short hook on one side and a very long hook on the other. The short hook was hooked to the mechanism fastened to the tank, and the long one to the mechanism on the engine. I just am not sure where the hook points were. None of the drawings on your post above look like either one of the mechanisms on my engine or tank. The upper drawings, with the "On the carb" controls are accurate. Does this help?

Briggs Governor Spring location

I have solved the problem. The small hook on the spring connects to the linkage that is fastened to the tank Thru a small hole made for it. The large hook goes over a "T" that is fastened to the governor throttle control mounted to the engine block. When you advance the throttle the spring extends with the linkage and then brings it back when the throttle is returned to a slower speed. I believe the spring moves when the load increases on the engine to increase the speed like most governor systems.

Thanks for the diagrams, even though I didn't get the one I needed.
