    Okay,
    I've removed the gearbox, on the Briggs shaft there's a gear pinion that has teeth on it. How do I go about removing it from the Briggs engine shaft?
    If I can get this figured out I'll be good to go.

    Ahhh...... jlbf0786......


    Having never seen one of these machines I had no idea it had a gear reduction box on the engine, The gear on the crank IS part of the crank..... It doesn't come off, Therefore the HF engine isn't going to work......

    Sorry for the confusion and wasted time...... :hammerhead:

    picture of the gear box pinion.

    can it be removed or is it just part of the shaft.. which it seems to be. and that sucks.

    The gear is part of the crank....
    The good news is ..all you have to do is remove the side cover to replace the governor gear..

    I'm just going to take it by the repair shop tomorrow and see if I can get my buddy to take a look at it without having to charge me. I've already put the briggs back onto the aerator frame and installed the gearbox back on it. I know he can fix it, but with all the aerators and other equipment they've got coming into the shop I hate to ask him to take time out and look at my equipment.


    -Thanks for all the help guys,

    Good point for some reason this one flew right over my head. I was thinking 2 strokes revving with air leak.

    Although Rather than clean a carb people are likely to tighten the governor spring to raise rpm. So carb may have been the issue.
