    Rittenhouse trial, jury is still out

    But I suspect they won't be out long. The prosecutions case was garbage, so sayeth the defense attorney, Richards. This man is like the real Goliath. (Billy Bob Thornton's character). This is an obvious case of self defense. Especially after the prosecution failed to understand the gun laws in...

    Brave Browser

    I just started using the "Brave" browser. And I'm liking it. Now there's like no ads on any of the webpages I go to. And there's something on the right side of the home screen that says I'm making money from using it. I'm not sure what it is. It's only about .20 cents since last night. I think...

    KT746 Locked up

    KT746-3011 BD: 08/02/2015 Feeling pretty good today, so I thought I'd check out why this Kohler was locked up. It's impossible to turn from the engine fan. Put a big pair of channel locks on the crank (the rusty part, just below the crank seal) and gave it a tug in both directions, and it...

    I drove a gravely for the 1st time today

    Well, the first time I've mowed for a long period of time on one. Spent about 2.5hours on it. It's a 52" cut, IIRC. Decent size Kawasaki engine. Darn thing bout beat me to death. The landlord said she'd knock $100 off my rent if I mowed her big ass yard. Good grief man, she's got a huge place...

    Apple Scmapple

    I didn't get the chance to watch much TV last holiday season. But this year, I'm in a better situation and can watch all I want. One thing I've always looked forwards to was Peanuts (Charlie Brown and Snoopy). Since I'm streaming this year, but can still watch local TV, I wanted to find out...

    German Roaches

    So the new house I'm moving into, well was. At the moment almost everything is in the garage waiting to get rid of the roaches. I looked at the house about 1 week before I started moving in. And didn't see one roach. Not a one. The day I hauled my first load, they were everywhere. Some house...

    ECH749-3016 Stuck flywheel

    This is on a scag 61. Horizontal engine. Only one place to get a prybar under the fly wheel at, being there's not much room without taking the intake off. So with the one place to pry from, using the snap-on air hammer, didn't do the trick. So I've got the puller on it, and using the tire...

    Anyone else into online golf?

    I used to play "Winning Putt" til they shut it down. I think that was in about 2018. I haven't played anything online since. But an old friend of mine from that game sent me a message the other day (haven't heard from him in years) and said he's playing "Shot Online." He likes it. So I thought...

    Nikota gen, different V's from same receptacle

    6.5hp Chonda engine on a NIkota 3500w Gen. It has what looks like a capacitor in it. This thing is old, so I'm guessing that's also a regulator. Anywho, After making the repairs on this (carb mainly), I checked the voltage. From one plug, I dialed up the governor to 120v's. The other plug...

    BR600Z crank seal leaking

    This thing runs pretty good. Just not closed to the RPM's I think it should run. Adjusting the H out, really doesn't change anything, unless I'm closing it. Took the recoil off and found a pretty bad crank seal leak. Very wet around it. Question: Would a crank seal have that same affect on...

    GT201 Solution post

    Some of you guru's, please correct me if I'm wrong about this. I'm getting some of last years left overs ready to sell this spring, and ran across this trimmer someone gave me last year. The carb was junk, so I tossed it into the "rebuild later bin" and put a new Amazon carb on it. The carb...

    What I'm listening to (for the 3rd day straight)

    This isn't really my type of music. But my kids sent it to me, because he knows how I am about druggies. (Can't stand their guts and livers). The first time I listened to it, it was tough to get through, because it's not my kind of music. But the words drew me in. And after listening to it a 2nd...

    460 Rancher chainsaw

    The both L and H are limited. The H was turned as far as the limiter would allow it. Customer just wanted new primer lines, so that's all I did. (I've been griped out lately for doing a little more than another customer wanted so I'm sticking to doing just what I'm told to do) Anywho, this...

    2012 Grizzly 300, I think

    The vin numbers that are supposed to be stamped on the frame (behind the left front wheel, are not legible. So I took a part number from the fuel tank cover and researched it. 1SC-F171A shows to fit the 300 grizzly. The customer doesn't have any paperwork on the ATV, so I'm just trying to match...

    What did I do wrong?

    Poulan Pro PP5020AV chainsaw. Compression at about 150. Good spark. Prime it, choke it, and it cranks and idles fine but bogs when revved up. Over and over, (having to crank it a dozen times or more) I finally starts revving without bogging. I'm opening it up trying to find that strokin...
