    Yeah, well....in fact mine needed a filter when it bent the rod too, lol. It had tipped over on my trailer and flooded the filter with gas and then that caused it to plug up. Most engines are more forgiving though!!!!

    I gotta take out the trash and get some sleep...good luck to you too.

    I got lucky, I was able to put in a new pushrod, tighten the valves, changed the oil, and air filter.......seems good to go. Will keep my eye open for a honda replacement.

    I don't know or care what kind of equipment you have Orange mower but there is no need to criticize people and their equipment. Everyone has to start somewhere and some aren't as privileged as others as to the type/condition/brand of equipment they run. I started out with a 50" Craftsman ZTR and and it wasen't as good as my Ferris or Exmark but it got lots of jobs done and sufficed until I was able to get a better mower. (and it still goes, so we use it as our farm campground mower and it still runs good) Would I advise someone to buy one? Not reall, unless that's all they can afford. A person that starts small, with rougher equipment than they would like, once they grow and are able to afford better equipment, they are able to look back and realize that what they have now is from all their sweat and hard work. VERY SATISFYING! Just think before you type. Thanks

    The main thing is, it is profitable and it's paid for. It's all quality equipment. I buy as I grow. [​IMG]
