Hello. What is the model number off the engine? It should be stamped in the sheet metal above the spark plug.

no sheet metal above spark plug

closest thing had JT-06-06-03

Expert:  CJBennett replied 6 years ago.

Is this a Briggs and Straton engine? Is the carb made of plastic?

CJ

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

all I can see is MTD products

 

also the carb is metal NOT plastic.

Expert:  CJBennett replied 6 years ago.

You have the Chinese MTD engine. That long spring keeps all the linkage tight. It goes into the same hole that the governor link is in. Throttle shaft and governor arm holes.
