I fell off the wagon this morning and bought another old craftsman. There was a craftsman rider a Snapper frame and a push mower on Facebook close so I went and looked at them. I didn't like the looks of them so the guy said he had another craftsman with a good engine, maybe a Kohler. We walked around the house and looked at it but it was not a kohler (17.5 Intek) and the starter and flywheel cover were missing. I spun the engine through and could feel the compression stroke but am wondering why someone robed parts off a running engine. I told the guy I would give him $60 for it. He agreed and we loaded it on my trailer. When I got home I took the plug out and verified that the piston is going up and down but I believe this engine has a surprise in store for me somewhere.
