6hp, 126402 engine Briggs Stratton. I broke the keeper that anchors the throttle arm to the choke. I cannot find a part number.
Make: Craftsman Intek Briggs
I tried to find the carb leak, and broke the washer and bolt holding the throttle arm to the carb. Without a parts number, I can't order a replacemennt (if available).
Hello and welcome to Just Answer,
Do you see the part you need in this diagram?
Thanks for the attempt. The diagram you sent is in my owners manual.. I have examined the carb, but do not see tne part in box 222. Would the purchase of a new carburetor provide what I need? The carb is 696981 (or 798653). I suspected that a stuck needle valve was causing the leak, and to take off the bowl I inverted the carb, thus the breaking part. The engine number is(NNN) NNN-NNNN If the bracket shown in box 222 is on the cylinder head, that is not the part (s) I need. The rod without the retainer fits on top of the carb, into a lever for the butterfly. After two days without success on the internet, I am considering tossing an otherwise good machine.
Can you post a picture of the broken part?
This Briggs and Stratton small engine is very common. As a small engine technician you must recognize my description of the governor control rod and how it sets into the carb lever. Initiallly, I asked only for something to keep it in place on the carb. I cannot send photo because it shattered into pieces. It was a white retainer/washer/grommet/ or whatever, that fits possibly on the underside. I only want to know how to find another. Without it, the rod pops out of the lever and moves the carb to full choke making the engine race. I only asked for a part number so I could order a replacement.
Have you even seen a Briggs and Stratton small engine?
I have seen several Briggs engines. I wanted to be certain that we we talking about the same thing. The white part you are referring to fits into the throttle shaft of the carburetor. The linkage rod fits into the whitre item. The white part is is available only with the throttle shaft. The part number for the throttle shaft is 690024.
