1060E 10HP 24" Briggs - New Carb


My snowblower is model 1694440
The engine is a Briggs and Stratton 20G414 0111E1

I installed a new Briggs carb (796122) and when I started it up the engine immediately began revving too high (overspeed?).

Can someone help me with instructions for adjusting? Is it the governor?

You might have the governor rod on the wrong hole on the carb, or bought a constant speed carb.Others will come on with more detailed advice.
