900 snowseries briggs throttle lever

Hello, I am working on a relatives toro with a Briggs 900 snowseries engine. The machine works fine, When I use it the throttle is always on max. I noticed when I go to turn it off I barely move the lever from max and it shuts off. There is no throttle action. It is either on full and engine runs properly or if lever is moved at all from full it kills engine. It seems like some sort of adjustment. Just seeing if anyone has seen this or has any tips.

Whenever I see a post concerning running problems I always wonder about past maintenance and fuel habits.

I'm a big believer in Sea Foam and use it regularly. I suggest a dose of it to see if it helps. Easy, not expensive and if the carb is gunked up it can fix it.

the throttle handle is on the eng? But it has no travel, or the moving the handle has no effect for most of the travel?

Yes,I have had good luck with seafoam also. This machine is out of warranty but has only been used once. It runs fine, and when I move the throttle lever just slightly it shuts off like the kill switch has been engaged. that is why I think it is a adjustment. It is not that the engine runs poorly then quits when throttle is lowered. It runs fine, and it would be at full throttle when it is being used so it is not a real problem,just not the way it should be.

Hello and welcome to SBF Jack. Here is a link to the Briggs OHV service manual. Section 1 shows how to adjust the throttle lever and maybe you will see something out of place on yours.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
