    Snapper RER Blade Issue

    Snapper rear engine rider model 2812523BVE Serial 2013121925. 28 inch blade. Long story short. Daughter in law hit a rather large root. Now the blade hits the deck housing. I thought maybe it was just a bent blade. I guess things are just never that easy. I put a new blade on, same thing. Let...

    Massive, massive, paint analysis, no expense spared.

I lathered up the scoop, impeller and chute with the paint and a brush. Took a little while to dry, But it dried hard. No snow will stick to...

    5 HP Tecumseh governor issue

    Well, I had some time to look at the situation so I put on my x-ray specs and what I found was the connecting link between the governor arm and the carburetor had a bend in it. This caused the link to be at an angle as it went thru the hole on the carb and bind. Once I straightened it out, I ran...

    Fimco Sprayer

    I guess this is a throw away society. I bought a 15 gallon tow behind fimco sprayer. Why? I don't know. I needed something to spray my apple trees. I saw them at tractor supply . The one on display outside was a wreck. The hoses were all cracked from the sun. I'm sure that was a cost cutting...

    Help Snapper Honda GCV160 replacement engine Identification

    My 2 cents. I had a Briggs with a bent crank shaft. Put the mower on its side, found the high side and hit it with a small sledge. Brought it back in close enough. I'm sure the Pros don't want to hear this but it worked for me. What did I have to lose. I continued to mow with the machine.
