    Homelite HT-17

    I picked up an older Homelite HT-17 hedge trimmer for 65$. It has been sitting for awhile but will fire with fuel in the carb, and overall is complete and in good shape. I will need to rebuild the carb nut overall it looks good. Are these hedge trimmers any good? Hopefully I didn't overpay for...

    Briggs 208cc govenor gear

    I'm looking at buying a generator for cheap that sounds like it might have a bad govenor internally. Assuming it does, is the governor gear on these replaceable? I don't have the exact engine numbers yet. I know it's a 208cc briggs engine on a 3500watt generator. Doing a general lookup of xr950...

    Recommended stator for 8hp engine

    I have a briggs 8hp engine that was made near the end of 1995. It is on a generator I have that runs great and all. I wanted to add the electric start option/charging system to it. I was able to find a flywheel for it used that came off an older 8hp engine. The engine it came off of was on an...

    Can't figure out missfire

    So.. I'm trying to figure out an issue on a twin cylinder 18hp tecumseh engine. When it's running it seems to run a bit rich and it pops and backfires a bit, mostly at idle speeds. But it will still do it at all speeds. If I take off the plug wire on the left head it almost makes no difference...

    Mantis tiller compression

    I have a mantis tiller that is a bit hard to start and won't run at idle. I usually have to hold it around 1/4 throttle or more. I have put a new plug in as well as a new carb since it sat for several years. After checking compression it's making approximately 70-75psi pulling in over with the...

    Exhaust popping through intake briggs 10hp

    I have a 10hp OHV briggs engine on a yard blower. It starts up fine and idles but it pops like crazy through the intake as soon as it goes up in rpm. If I take the air filter out it sounds like a 2 stroke engine without a muffler. The engine sounds like its struggling and it never really gains...

    Need help IDing this Kohler engine/whats wrong with the charging system

    So I suppose this is a two part question... My first question is, is there any way to ID this engine if the tags are all either torn, faded, or missing? Unfortunately the tags on the actual mower are also ruined or gone. I included a few pics of the engine, but it's a twin cylinder fuel injected...

    Adding vacuum fuel pump to briggs engine

    I was wonder how/if there is a way to add a vacuum style fuel pump to my briggs engine. It's an old 8hp made in 1986 on my snow blower. To make a long story short, once it gets a little below half a tank it starts to cut out and wont run. I have rebuilt the carb, (its spotless), cleaned and...

    Push mower drive pulley speed change?

    I was wondering if there is a different drive pulley that can be put on a walk behind mower to change the speed of it. Currently it is a bit fast for my elderly neighbor to use as they have trouble keeping up sometimes. I thought I saw something awhile back about being able to change the pulley...

    Older Briggs Vanguard engine oil type

    I recently had an older Massey Ferguson lawn tractor fall into my hands for free. It needs some TLC but nothing too major. I got it running well and fixed some electrical issues it was having. But more to the point.. I was wondering what type of oil would be best for this engine. I'll post all...

    Kohler SV600 carburator rebuild kit?

    I feel a little stupid asking this question but does anyone know where I could find a carburetor repair kit for a Kohler SV600? I looked at a few sites online and they don't seem to list one. In the picture it says to see a note or something about repair kit parts but I can't find any notes...

    Honda clone engine parts

    I have a Chicago Electric generator that needs a new cylinder head, and maybe a new piston and ring set. I know this is built off the honda engine design but I'm not sure exactly what model to look it up as. All the ID tags and numbers are long gone and there is nothing cast into the engine...

    Briggs opposed twin idle/starting issues

    So I currently have the displeasure of working on my neighbors riding lawn mower that has a Briggs and Stratton twin opposed cylinder engine. (42A707-2238-E1). The problem I'm having with it is it seems to start a bit hard, more so when the engine is hot. (Sometimes it will crank and crank but...

    Toro single stage snowblower won't stop surging

    I'm working on a Toro single stage snowblower with a Techuseh 5.5hp engine. (LH195SP). Its low hours but sat for awhile. The orginal carburetor was destroyed from sitting with bad fuel so I ordered a new one. It starts up fine but without a load on the engine it surges and pops a bit. If I...

    Oil light randomly flashing?

    So, I'm working on a Cub Cadet LTX2045 mower with a Kohler twin engine. (PS-SV715-3002). When it's running the red oil light will randomly flash on and off, sometimes for awhile, sometimes not at all. Oil level is good and the mower itself seems to run fine. I thought it might be an oil pressure...

    Defective ignition switch?

    Well, to try and make a long story a little shorter I have a Murray riding mower from 2003. It has a Briggs and Stratton engine on it. Water got into the original switch and caused it to lock up. I put a new ignition switch in it but I never got around to testing it because the battery was dead...

    Looking for discontinued part for old Echo chainsaw

    I was wondering if anyone on here would know of anyone or any place that has a lot of discontinued chain saw parts. In this case I'm looking for the gasket that would go between the two case halves. I need to rebuild this saw for someone as it's sentimental value to someone. I can get pretty...

    Honda GCV160 Model not found

    I have a Honda GCV160 engine off a push mower that has a bent crank. To make a long story short someone hit a big rock while mowing, (not me) and the crank is bent pretty bad. When I try to lookup the parts for this engine using the engine numbers I can't seem to find anything for it. Maybe im...
