Governor spring location

I have a B&S 23 Intek
Model# 445777
Type# 02 63 E1
Code# 030103YG
I am having problems with the governor. It was off along with the carb, got it all back on but not sure where to place governor springs.
Anyone have a diagram or picture of this?
Many thanks in advance. Gator3

Thanks for the picture, that is what I needed.
I hooked the springs up like the picture and started it and it ran wide open, while throttle cable was at idle. I had to manually push the governor arm back and hold it to idle it down.
I set the governor clockwise with throttle wide open made no difference.
Not sure what to do next.

With the above, I take it you got this engine in pieces ?

The throttle cable can be installed two ways, Make sure you have the proper pull direction and travel.

Restrorob, in parts is right. Carb was in box in pieces, bought rebuild kit. Cleaned carb reassembled, there is a shaft spring in the kit is it supposed to go on throttle shaft? It seems that there should be something to help bring the throttle linkage back to idle.
When not running throttle linkage hangs wide open, when started it runs wide open ( only for a sec because I manually make it idle take my fingers off back to wide open ) it does not come back to idle on its own.
Restrorob do you have a breakdown diagram of the Nikki carb I could look at?

PS All the cables are hooked up just like you show.
Thanks for your help and patience. gator3

A recap; Springs hooked up correctly and cable in proper position, Governor shaft adjusted clockwise at WOT.

With the engine off and moving the throttle control back and forth from slow to fast does the governor arm move at all ?

You can look your engine up here for all parts break-downs; http://www.briggsandstratton.com/eng...cessories.aspx

Yes, the governor arm moves and the governor shaft moves with it.
When not touching it, it falls or stays in wide open position. Is this correct?

I looked at part diagrams; carb rebuild I put a metallic gasket in they called a "swirl" something. I don't see that on the rebuild kit in the diagrams.
Having that in would that have anything to do with the governor actions?

Thanks again

Yes, Once the engine cranks the governor gear goes to work and pulls the throttle shaft back to the rpm you have the throttle set at.

Where was it at on the carb you put this gasket ?

Unless the throttle shaft/butterfly in the carb is binding up/sticking, The governor should be working properly with everything hooked up/adjusted and functioning like you say.

The only thing left is the governor gear it's self, The sump/pan will have to be removed to inspect/replace it.

Took the bottom case off of engine and found 2 round pins like carb float pins and 2 metal "ears" or parts of the governor. They were just laying in the bottom didn't like it hurt anything else in the case.
What would make this happen?
What do I need to buy to fix the internals of the governor?

This is the parts needed to go back together properly;
