    Well just did the early oil change on my 651V

    Got to 7.6 hours today after mowing on my Liberty, so did the early 8 hr oil & filter change. So whenever I get to 50 hours, I plan to service the HG 2800's early as well. Oil is the cheapest thing on the machines. Now the hydro filters are a bit more expensive,.

    New NGK Spark Plugs assembled in Thailand ?

    This is a 1st for me. Just got my order in, & the Spark Plugs are made in Japan, but assembled in Thailand.. Boxes look slightly different, but same everything else. I tested the Ohm resistance on these & they are between 4K - 6k Ohm. Which is fine. They are resistor spark plugs.

    (UPDATE) My Vintage Briggs Flathead is getting low on Compression.

    My vintage B&S Flathead push mower is getting low on compression. Since it does not burn oil & plug is clean, I suspect the valves, in particular the Exhaust. There is no valve lash adjustment in the conventional sense on this Flathead. Mow season is possibly close to over, So when done, I'll...
