Bill this engine runs about 2500 maybe the governor is all way back and under load it moves the throttle meckenism and picks up speed. tried unhooking spring on governor arm no difference. So I hooked a spring to close throttle shaft a little it slowed down to more where I need engine to operate at. I only run one of my piston pumps with it . I painted spring green tonight so it doesn't look so obvious. cheating a little not original equipment.Going to let my machinist friend tap that carb for me.

Well got spring bracket all fabricated spring and bracket painted hole in carb body retaped 15/32 wasn't quite straight because not much meat around hole in elbow flange that the machinist and I forgot to see if new bolt would fit in the hole. I threaded it in but that made it difficult to line up with threaded hole on carb. But I got it in not like I'm going to take it off every day. Heres a pic of what I did to slow it dawn. Still have to fiddle with the choke to get it started but it runs best I can do with it.

I have a similar early cast iron Clinton engine, it's a model: 730AT, similar to the far more common 700A. It was one of the first engines they made.

I wouldn't say it's only worth $25. It's worth whatever someone will pay for it. To a collector it could be worth far more, for what I see Briggs 5S's going for these days—and that's a very common engine.
