I don't know if the owners want a new spot just for that or let it just go to open posting. The principles of engines and mechanics is much the same. Several mowers and yard tractors use hardware store parts for simple things and farm tractors would need more intense parts.

If you are having a problem or have questions now just post them and we'll check it out as we can. It's taking many eyes to keep up with even reading most of the posts right now and the site is gaining popularity all the time.

Post away now if you want to,

T

Tom, you're right. Not nec. for a separate board. As for this board's growth. I rec' it all the time. I think you've gotten at least 10 new users (and they tell someone, and on and on) thanks to the help I've gotten here.
Still havent fixed the Dodge Ram electrical problem but I think it's because I need a new processor. My husband is in the auto biz and just took a job w/ one of the major parts company's. This has been completely worthless to me. Laugh He hates cars and doesn't know a thing about how to fix 'em. Go figure.

This thread is 3 years old. I really doubt he's still looking.

Uh, my mower will crank, but won't start. Had my neighbor's brother-in-laws' wife's younger sister's cousin try it. Her tank top fell off when she was yankin' on the rope. Still didn't start. I told her to check the gas. Well, she shouldn't been smokin'. Lit her up like a candle. The fireman said she shouldn't been smokin' with her tank top hangin' down. Drew her 'tention away. Don't know, but they sure look'd okay ta me. Damned thing still won't start. Needs a new oriface, I'm told. Replaced the differential rod in the carbratoor. Poor girl. Looks like a one-eyed monster, now. Didn't know those things would shrivel like that. Maybe, I should wait until the snow melts?

Look, we don't answer questions in private. That defeats the whole forum system. You need to chill out a bit.

I said that cause i didn't think you wanted people talking about stuff that isn't on the forum.
Just trying to offer people as much help as i can cause stuff works both ways.

On this forum, you play by the rules.

Tim - others - there is "Open Posting" spot here and has been there since the beginning. There's too many selections not IMO but I don't own or control format at all.

I appreciate the energy of it all but probably best to limit advice forums to a smaller amount of stuff taken on. I own a real tractor and a Kawi 12.5HP on a Bunton type, zero turn mower - ticking me off right now as it won't start? Has compression spark and gas - nothing? WTF! IDK - I'll figure it out but not a small engine tech and there are differences I'm not used to.

Two stoke engines should be outlawed. Near pulled my shoulder out of it socket with many of them. What gives with that?

For now I'm blaming alcohol mandated use in fuel ruining some older stuff.

Tim - I can appreciate the vigor but understand that with advice on anything and NOT being there is a best guess based on info from folks who stay or pass by. Sometimes we find specs requested. Reading between the lines becomes an art at this stuff on the web - trust me,

Tom
