Briggs and stratton engine over idles runs so fast that oil spits out can only be shut off by pulling spark plug wire?

The governor is stuck, causing the engine to over-speed and not return to regular idle speed. You can check the travel of the governor by moving it back and forth with your finger - there is not much travel, but there should be some. Check for debris or accumulated gunk at the lever where it joins the engine and clean it well. Ensure that the engine oil is clean and at normal level. A stuck governor will make the engine over-speed so fast that it can cause the piston rod to break. Good luck.

What is the Horsepower for an 1800cc Honda gold wing engine?

There is no direct correlation between engine displacement and horsepower. One 1800cc engine may produce lots of horsepower, while another of the same size will produce more torque but not as much horsepower. It depends on the engine design and what it was made for...In general, a long stroke, slow turning engine will produce more torque but less horsepower than a fast spinning short stroke engine. A typical example would be a 1400cc sport bike, like the Suzuki Hayabusa, which turns out almost 200 horsepower, while a larger 1500cc V-twin Kawasaki Vulcan
