    Posted: 14 Aug 2013 at 10:30pm


As my Hayter rough cut mower became difficult to start, I decided on a de-coke, and noticed that the exhaust valve tappet clearance was nil! after doing the de-coke and fixing the valves, the re-assembly was quite straight foreword EXCEPT I cant remember how those fiddly throttle springs go back! can someone who knows this engine layout help please? I have painted the holes white so you can see them in the photo, and starting at the top, I think that is the main throttle cable hole, and the bottom one is the governor lever, BUT there are THREE springs, a long one, and two together (one inside the other) just cant remember what hole went where! if you have a photo of the same engine with the springs on... it would be a great help!!

Hope that this helps. On this application the light spring (anti surge/rattle)wrapped around the governor link hooks into the same holes as the link but on others there will be a small hole adjacent to the link ones.

Perhaps a case for using the digi camera before as well as after!

Thanks for that, My phone packed up some weeks ago, and I have a cheap "Throwaway phone" that does not have a camera, so that is why I did not take a photo first, but I did stare at it for several seconds, so that I would remember the layout.... But I dont!...Bugger!

I would agree with that. I recently pulled an Atco Standard apart and took digi pics as well as a fairly rough non-artistic sketch. When it came to reassembling the rods between the frames with their multiple spacers and collars the drawing was of more use than the images! Perhaps there's a place for both?

Out there , someone has a Hayter with the B&S 5 HP engine on it, a photo would be nice of the spring layout, I shall try Wristpins diagram when I get down the barn, and hope that works.
