Setting the governor on a mower engine depends on whether it is a mechanical or pneumatic governor and the type of control that is used. The governor plays a very important part by keeping the engine from overspeeding and causing possible damage. I suggest you check out a book on Briggs engines at your local library and find the procedure for setting the type of governot equipped on your engine.
