Engine Redlines / Revs out of Control!
I've got a Scotts's L2048, which is really just a John Deere painted orange. It has a 2 cylinder Briggs Indek mower.
I pulled it out of the barn to use it the other day and noticed a tire needed air. So I backed in and shut it down. I aired up the tires and got back on.
When I started it back up it revved out of control to the point I thought the engine would blow. I shut it down and checked the cables, linkage and springs.
Nothing had slipped and everything looked to be where it should. Started it back up and same thing. Any idea what could be causing this?
