    Looking for engine dimensions

    Anyone have a link to a diagram of the dimensions of where the bolt holes are for a Briggs 281707? I'm playing and would like to know where to drill holes vs eyeballing it. TIA.

    Stihl Hedge trimmer ignition

    I came accross a HS56 but it is missing the pull cord assembly. Before I buy the missing parts, I want to test if it runs so I am using a drill to crank to see if the ignition works. Compression feels good but that is for later. I do not get any spark(or is it I just can't see it???) with the...

    Does 'Project Farm' live by me???

    If you have seen some of his experiments you know what I am talking about. I just found a mower with a Briggs Quantum engine. It ran bad. Taking a wiff of the tank, I noticed the owner used paint thinner as gas. Dumped it and added gas and it runs fine.

    Weed problem

    Every spring, I spray weedkiller. Every spring, many of the weeds curl up but stay green. Some of them, 1 branch is curled up, the other branch looks untouched. They look like they are laughing at me with a black eye instead of being dead like they are supposed to. I read the instructions temp...

    bolt broke off

    I have a quantum mower motor where 2 bolts that held it to the mower deck broke off in the engine sump. I never had to extract this so for anyone who did - is it a pain to remove(I assume heat it up wiht a torch and whack the bolt) so is it worth the trouble?? TIA.

    Old BR430 problem

    I have a problem\question on the trigger. It starts but when i squeeze the trigger nothing happens. I opened it and see a slot but nothing to catch the "ball" at the end of the cable.

    Need new cylinder??

    I have a "chopsaw" "cut-off saw" K770 where the compression is too low - 60psi. Spark OK, spray starter straight into dry cyl no go. Looking from carb side, the piston looks perfectly fine if not better than some pistons that work. My first assumption is it needs a new cylinder\piston but as...

    Want to ID my blower

    I just got a few blowers (for $10 each :LOL:). Just changing the primers did the trick and they all run. Looking around, I see all stickers that would tell me what model i got are gone. I think it looks like models BR500 to 700. Can anyone tell me what else would tell me what i got?? Thx.

    Hydraulic Trans problem

    I have a Sabre(JD) but the problem is more a Tuff Torq problem. The mower has the k51a trans. It moves kinda slow so i figured to change the fluid. The fill plug is just under the battery so to avoid removing the trans each time to change the fluid, I cut a hole to reach the fill. From watching...
