you go to a junk yard and git a carb off of a 5- 8 hp moter of the same brand and serier and put that on the 3.5hp. Dont reinstal the governer and governer likage. If you have the litle screw twards teh back side insetall a cable there going twards the buterfly controling the carb directly. i have done the same on my 3.5 hp but you might not have a 3.5 it is more than likley a 3 hp brigs if it is the horazontal shaft versin. i have had my cart clocked at 45 mph with jist the stock conponents runing it off the carb and bypasing the govenor lynkage. i dont dare not have a lode on it to try to find the rpms.
