I was trying to use up the rest of the gas in the tank of the mower and decided I needed to do the path to the water meter for the water guy..which runs past my electric meter on the pole..The Chop-Chop method doesn't work too well on steel ground rods for meters..I need a new blade on that mower now..bent the crap out of it beyond straightening it..oh well..hopefully I remember that next time I go but have 4-5 mowers there.Fortunately I had finished mowing..

I forgot about it and came down over the top with the front wheels lifted for the tall grass...OOPS!


I didn't say they all run..maybe 1/2 of them so..lots of parts...My old $100 1980s Ford rider(NewHolland..engine needs a rebuild)quit on me about a year ago...$#$#@#$.
The mowers..are mostly the B&S 6hp(6-1/2?) rotary ones...They use a paper air filter(facing the front..about a 5x5 panel on the right side,one screw holds the panel/filter in place) that clogs every winter if people leave them in there.I've been GIVEN the nonstarting mowers or pick them up like new for $20 at thrift stores because people can't start them in the folowing spring.The secret is to pull out the paper filter and they will start right up after pumping the prime bulb..most on the first pull.Make sure you run the gas out of them after using them and you won't ever have problems..
The dead mowers..wrecked blades(rocks,not ground rods)..wheels fall off,rusty controls..engines still probably work...

I hit a grounding rod once and caused the timing of the engine to be off. Wouldn't start after all the normal prestart things to do. It was a walk behind so I took it to a local repair guy and he found the problem right away after telling him about hitting the rod.

There' is a pin holding the flywheel in line to the correct position on the shaft...like a 1/8" square pin that aligns a pulley on the table saw or other tool.Have I done that also?Let's just say I KEEP 1/8" square stock on hand..buy it by the foot.Every tool I have in my ukulele shop that has a pulley..needs that pin... ;) ..besides lawnmowers that get abused..

yeah, that rings a bell...it was a pin that went through the shaft that sheered on both side and caused the flywheel to go about 1/8" out of alignment. Doesn't take much :roll:

They usually have a keyway in the shaft and flywheel..either a full square shaft or a 1/2 round key on one side for getting it on easier.....Getting the flywheel pulled off might be the tough part...
now..what was this thread about?... :roll:
The Boss-coil stove...! :oops: :lol:

BossCoil burner project has come to an end. My parts supplier for the coil has become unreliable :roll:
