Heres a pic of the carb linkage on the 3.5hp Briggs on my 78 Snapper self propelled mower. I just wanted to see if you guys could tell me if everything is kosher with it? The spring linking the throttle cable linkage to the actual throttle seems a little odd to me. I was curious because it starts and runs fine, but if i back the throttle lever back close to half way, it will shut off like its running out of fuel. If I go back to about 1/4 throttle with the lever, it hits the kill switch and dies instantly. Is this normal? The pic was taken with the lever at full throttle/start (throttle cable is in the far left of the pic).
