Throttle control spring

Recommended Posts

peter lena

added pull springs to my throttle / choke spring pull point , found this to be the easiest way to control throttle creep , also added one to my carb throttle plate , just tempers setting enough to make for easy quick starts . have this set up on 3 kohler magnum 12  engines . lots of hours , with no problems . just an experiment that works , pete

So do the springs pull to full throttle to help keep it high RPM?

Or just the opposite?

@ebinmaine spring will maintain any setting you put it at , like the fact that you can really dial in what you want , makes the control more secure. another thing is that it assists the slide function on the cable , solid and smooth . the delicate tension on the carb throttle plate is just enough to assist starting . just something i tried when i had a constant erratic start , since trying the spring , instant starts and less choke . have lots of hours on this set up , when i change or correct anything , i road test it for quite a while , and continue to improve it , till it constantly works , pete

I did the same thing on my Raider 12. Got sick of having to pull on the throttle all of the time. This spring assist was one of the best things that I've done to improve the tractor.

@Achto  , also installed a 10 / 12 ga wire ground to the , spring mount , rectifier bolt , off the lower corner of engine to frame , ground point , die electric grease . that perforated steel at the base area is a good spring mount point . while you are there , why not ?  good for you , pete
