Re: You get what you pay for.

The last command twin I did with blown head gasket only came as a kit with the improved gasket and studs.
The gasket was great and very improved but I didn't like the studs. I ended up using factory...

Re: Briggs OHV Single Missing, Out of time?

The jet was the problem. It was running rich and chugging.
The jet will work installed either way but the correct way to install is from the top. That way it can not fall out ans sit in the bottom...

Re: Sixth terminal on key switch

My local auto parts stores carry 2 mower ignition switches- a 5 term and a 6 term.
They are pretty common.

Re: Snapper 1650 Value

I'm not good with garden tractors just cheaper riding mowers.

Some would only pay 500 or so but others looking for a certain mower would easily pay 1200-1500+ for that nice of shape, esp if with...

Re: Best way to fix a bad bolt thread

Don't be afraid of using red loctite. I don't even own BLUE. If it gets thread locker- it gets red!
I have never had anything break or been unable to disassemble after using red.

Re: B&S 40s877 Governor help

If the other engines had rtv instead of a gasket...they had been apart before and NOT assembled correctly.
Don't get into a habit of using rtv on crankcases. You will get burned eventually.

Re: Craftsman T2400 loses power when climbing hills

If you would have gotten here before calling sears we could have told you they are almost useless and WAY overpriced. Also, never buy parts form them...they mark them up almost 2x what others charge....

Re: Briggs Intek pushrods

I have no proof that the loctite actually makes the repair any stronger or more durable but it makes me feel better. I have to look up the specs on what temperature you have to heat it to to release...

I don't find it cost effective to tear into the hydro transmissions.

Re: High Zinc (ZDDP) Engine Oil: My 2 cents

2100 is great but you can't run it on straight Lucas. Lol
Many oils are only 800 PPM. Most additives like Lucas or STP (which I think is even higher zinc) say to run at 20%. You could go 25-30 and...

Re: Briggs 28N707 15HP Died and Won't Start

Yep. Always flip at least the aluminum pushrod which is on the intake on the 31 and 33 series but some are different.

Re: Briggs 28N707 15HP Died and Won't Start

Pull the valve cover. Sound like a rocker arm stud is loose or a bent pushrod.

The intake (bottom one) is .003-.005 and exhaust (top one) is .005-.007.
Have to set at 1/2 inch past TDC of...

Adjust valve first and watch them move to make sure they look ok.
Too tight intake lash will do this.

Re: High Zinc (ZDDP) Engine Oil: My 2 cents

There is no oil on the market with too much zinc today though. 1200-1500 PPM would be great but hard to find that even.

On the abuse thing. It's not about a cure additive. It's about keeping the...
