how do i go about checking my engine rpm's
On a mower?
Use a tachometer and refer to a service manual for your engine for proper speed and adjustment procedure.
thanks bob for your reply....
it's on my ride 0n spreader...
is it something a auto parts house will sell?
or tool sellers.
Briggs also sells one
There is also a product called tiny tach that is a permanently attached tach/hour meter that you could get from your dealer and probably from an on line supplier. I think they are about $50 each.
Anthony, Briggs sells a tach, called vibra tach. It is a neat tool costs less than 15.00.
Molerj..Can you give a link to a supply for the vibra tach? I dwould like to order one.
Here Anthony try here. You'll have to copy & paste this cause I don't know how to make it a link.
You also should be able to go to an Briggs & Stratton dealer & ask for a vibra tach. The part number is 19200. Hope this helps.
Then click on Price database and select Briggs & Stratton from the manufacture name & put in the part number 19200
I have one of those vibra-tachs. When the dealer handed it to me I was skeptical, but it has turned out to be one of my most useful tools. You set it on the top of the recoil housing and turn a dial on the face. as you turn, a wire extends out and starts to ocilate. When it ocilates in a steady circle read the number it points to and that's your rpm! Totally cool for $15.
Hey Brian thanks for that xplanation .I just bought one of these gizmos and couldn't figure out how it works. thanks buddy
