How to Repair a Lawn Mower Engine.
Cable might be broken in the cable housing
Could you expand on how the brushes are made and attached and what to use as a rubber band?
I had oil on piston finialky cranked then changed oil....it ran shaking then started smoking from top of motor under rope swealing then slowly cut off what happen and what do i do to fix it
My self- propel function us not working. Cable moves normal heading into housing, front wheels move fine. Mower starts right up, but I" m pushing manually..
white smoke was coming out of the exhaust. I checked the oil and it was low so I put a little bit back in and checked it again. Started it, still smoke a little bit. as I started to mow... all of a sudden it started billowing white smoke. I let go of it so it would turn off and for a few seconds it continued to sputter before finally turning off. Now I see oil on the body near the filter. Not sure what the problem is. Its only about a year old.
I have a Craftsman Brigs & Stratton with 4.75 Gross, recently when we start it, the engine begins but them almost immediately turns back off. We gave it a tune up, but there's still no difference.
I haves Briggs motor took apart carb and cleaned it new plug it will only start for a second or two if I squirt some starting fluid in carb then I dies out
I agree http://lawn-mower-reviews.com/
This is good guide on how to select the best one.I really loved your comparison chart and look of the site. You seem to be expert in this.
Whatever you do, don't buy any mower made by MTD. As for the battery operated rechargeable mowers? What an absolute joke . . . sure love the environment as you are forced to buy new batteries every year (do you have a clue as to the environmental impact of making these batteries . . . your better of burning diesel and it will also cost far less). We've all got a pile of "expired" rechargeable power tool batteries in our basements . . . This is like the old razor industry or printer industry rule . . . buy our junk for cheap and we'll make a killing on selling you short-lived razors, ink cartridges and power tool/mower batteries.
OK its not a lawn mower but its fuction is similar. honda gx160 driving a waterpump has a fixed jet carb. origina carb missing so i bought a jap cone. the problem is it starts/runs fine on choke but if i take choke off even sightly it dies out! took carb apart to look for problem everything seems fine. i happen to come across a youtube vid by a kid who had similar motor and carb and he had the SAME PROBLEM!? i also was able to get full throttle to work by manipulating choke. so it seems to be completely missing low/midrange. i drained float bowl and it had plenty of gas in it.
Does the light bulb have to be dead?
Can anyone help me with what they use to seal between the air box and carb intake on a honda gxv120 engine. Seems they used a black gasket sealant would this be right? Tia
