i am going to say it needed to be adjusted out some
yep. that engine is over 30 years old and it's been through some rough times. i had thought that it needed to be adjusted because it was running very badly.
30? dang, and it's still running (better now)
Oh yeah. Them B&S engines keep runnin' strong all the time, with a few carb adjustments, that is!!!
My grandfather's beloved Toro push mower is gonnd bite the dust. That thing is knockin' bad. And talk about smoke, that engine is turning into a mosquito fogger!!It's a 3.5 B&S with a vertical pull starter. Here is a picture of one close to it. only his does not have PTO.
Seems like an ace B&S Mechanic like your self could just overhaul that old engine and get her running like a top again.
It's not worth it. The whole mower is falling apart, and he still has that edger and rider just waiting to be cranked up. And the self-propelled drive on it is shot, and If I do end up fixin' it, I'll just buy a new engine!!:blob3: :blob3: But I could possibly overhaul it sometime.
maybe he should get a lawnboy (you)
Naw. I don't think so. My cousin has a Lawnboy, and he said it's been nothing but trouble to him. He said that it is not worth it.
You continue to suprise me with your abilities.
When I first came on this site you were just a 14 year old youngster and in the couple of months I have been here you have became not only a B&S Engine Mechanic but now the owner of Robert's Lawn Mowing Service.
Pretty soon I guess George and Dick will be turning over their duties to you.
My hats off to you, you are rapidly becoming a legend in your own mind.
Good luck in the future and if my daughters weren't too old for you I would try to hook one of them up with you.
