    hey guys, id like to get into doing tune ups for myself and a few other people, does anyone have any good tips or websites for me to learn from? im not the best with engines etc but would like to be.
  2. Chilton prints a book for 2-12hp 2&4 stroke engines that is very good. Covers several makes. Should be able to get it at Barnes & Noble. Mines getting a bit out of date it was priced at $20 in 93.

    Briggs also has a good repair manual for about $15. Their web site also has a tips area.

    Also check your local tech schools, some still have small engine courses.

    I bought a Briggs & Stratton CD rom repair manual at Wally World for $7.50. Real good graphics and such. I've been messin with engines ever since I was 5, and still luv it. Of course, the only engines I work on is Briggs & Stratton. I have never messed with any others. Good luck
