Troybilt Pony tiller assistance

Posted by pat.48 none (My Page) on

I'm looking for carb linkage info or pictures for a Troybilt Pony model# 15009, with a B&S engine Model # 135297
Type 0157 01. B&S Parts list shows a mechanical governor rod but not as part of the carb view. Iconnected it to the throttle bellcrank on the side of the carb and the lower end onto the governor arm. The throttle opens okay when sliding the toothed plastic block to increase RPMs,but doesnt return to the idle stop screw when decreasing speed (sliding the plastic block back to idle). Does the mechanical governor control move the throttle back to idle stop or am I missing something? I've researched B&S, MTD and other websites but still havent pinned down a definitive answer. Help anyone?
Oh yes, I had to start a new forum as Dave Danger's was maxed out. A lot of good info on that one and this is a continuation on its Troybilt forum. Thanks all.

RE: Troybilt Pony tiller assistance

I had a similar problem just the other day with a Troy-Bilt Pony tiller. Mines an older model ('01 or earlier) but maybe this will help you.

The wire that grounds the tiller to turn it off was touching the throttle gear, which was in turn causing the gear to governor spring to not be able to pull down the governor when I lowered the throttle back down. Simply disconnecting the wire from the bottom of the gas tank and rerouting it around and under the gas tank rather than between the engine block and gas tank, then reconnecting it fixed it. That way the wire was not touching any of the throttle mechanism.

Even though the wire was only wrapped below part of the gear, which you would think would not effect anything, it actually effected a lot.
