I bought a dead machine for $25. There is a knob above and beside the carburetor housing that has a sticker by it that says, speed control, Pull up to run and push down to stop. It is broken. I doubt that I can repair it and get the angle correct because it has two bends to get it to go around the carb. body. I looked for a replacement part on two different sites but can not find it. Is this the engine throttle?

The key is missing also. Is this key a piece of plastic that prevents the ignition from going to ground when it is in the slot? Does pulling the key out kill the engine?

1691023. Most likely an 860 E model. 8 hp BS, 24", two stage.

Stop & Run. Is the throttle control. If you remove the plate to expose the lever. You may find that the lever comes into contact with a ground lug that kills the engine.
The "Key" is a safety that keeps the engine from starting.. Without it the coil is grounded and the engine will not start. You can buy the keys at any shop that sells blowers. You can insert any plastic thing that will fit into the slot and between the contacts. I have used the handle of a plastic spoon a few times to get one running until I could pick up a key.
As others have stated. You will need to look for parts for the engines make and model to find what you need. They will need to be for a snow blower engine. For the carb setup is different from say a tiller engine.

Try ereplacementparts.com or call BandS directly. Just ordered an obsolete hose from BandS a couple months ago and had it in hand four days later.

If the throttle is mounted on the engine, the parts were probably supplied by the engine manufacturer, not Simplicity.

The engine sounds like a Briggs & Stratton (most likely), or a Tecumseh engine.

Find the model, type, & code numbers from a B&S engine, or the model & spec numbers from a Tecumseh engine. ....More info is available.

Great advise. I thought it was odd that the parts break down did not show the engine. It is an 8 hp B&S

The throttle device can be replaced with a cable and push pull knob. The governor control should not be affected by the change in positioning of the pivoted link that controls governor spring tension. The pull out key will shut it off, as will the push pull control in the stop position. Jim

That is what I thought I would try to do if the part is NLA or expensive.
