    Re: 19.5 Briggs threw a rod

    What is the model and type number? If the crankshaft and/or block are damaged you might be further ahead installing a complete engine, they are often cheaper than a short block.

    The governor spring pulls the throttle into the wide open position, once the engine starts the governor tries to close it. It sounds like you have the spring incorrectly installed.
