I HAD A NEW CAM PUT IN MY 18.8 BRIGS AND Stratton engine on

Customer Question

I HAD A NEW CAM PUT IN MY 18.8 BRIGS AND Stratton engine on my Cub Cadet about 4 months ago. Now I heard a snap and my throttle doesn't work. Could this be just the throttle, or could the cam have broke again. the motor is about 12 years old. The throttle stick even comes completely out of its hole.
