I am a homeowner with a 26 month old 20 HP Briggs Intek V-Twin on my mower (yes, 2 months since warranty expired). While mowing Saturday I stopped the blades and the engine began to race. I checked all the linkage and all is fine. Checked the carb and it too is fine. I'm 90% sure the governor gear will need to be replaced. Question 1: What $$$ figure am I looking at for someone to fix it? Question 2: Can I do this myself in a reasonable amount of time? I have pretty good mechanical skills, just never worked on a small engine. Question 3: Can I forget the mechanical one and put on an electronic type governor? (do they make such a thing for small engines) Thanks in advance. Steve Caldwell....soon to be 'Steve, the guy that lives in that tall hay field'
