View Full Version : Troy Built 6.75 hp engine running fast

The manual does not show my choke adjustment which seems to consist of a cord running down to the fast/slow area (not called out as such) and I have seen a write up by someone saying it has one speed. It ran fine until going into some bushes and that triggered something to make it faster. There is a small rubber torpedo type piece with indentations on it that fits into a metal bracket to hold the wire in the cord at a certain position but I don't see how to vary the speed? That is a Briggs & Stratton Engine.

That is a Briggs & Stratton Engine I forgot to mention.

Sounds like you have a stick stuck in your governor linkage.

There are a few different variations of throttle controls on these engines.

Post the model and type numbers off the engine AND the equipment model and serial numbers so we can see what you have.

If you have a throttle control lever up on the handle there is a CABLE going down to the engine, The outer part is called the cable housing the inner part is called inner wire.
Every time I seen cord I was thinking pull rope/cord.
