Re: Old Rover vertical pull starter cord replace NormK 35 minutes ago
I have never bothered replacing the cords on these, always had boxes of these pull starters, easier just to replace the unit. I have thrown a lot of them out now, the days of these old Briggs are numbered around here

Re: Scammers maxwestern 27/02/24 09:46 AM
Hi Norm,

Yes I don't see the problem answering private number calls ,I've had a few when selling on Gumtree and just ask
them for their number so you can message details back.

If you get a time waster on a private number I just hang up .

The thing is there are people who won't answer a call from a private number ,I've even seen a few ads on Gumtree
and the sellers say that private numbers won't be answered but as you say they could miss a call from a Doctor or
a Hospital.

Another phone scam is when someone rings your phone so it rings once and hangs up before you answer
, then if you ring back it's a high priced number that you receive an excessive bill for.

I saw a show the other day where scammers in India were making $20,000 a day ,all from people who weren't
very tech savvy but the governments have now arrested them so it looks like it's not a good time for scammers ,I just
don't understand why the governments have let them get away with it for so long,

Cheers
Max.

It's easier than you think MM ,you undo 4 bolts and remove the circlip then get the clutch drum out and the bearing, if the bearing is
worn out ,but you could just find an old 2 stroke 52cc line trimmer at a tip shop for $10. and use the shaft assembly from that..

Hi QSR,

If no one here has a muffler to sell it may be worth looking on eBay ,I see there is a new old stock one for sale now.


Cheers

Re: Some people are dogs NormK 20/02/24 10:12 PM
Hi AVB,
Yep that is about how it is. I have worked on many trashed mowers that have been flogged into the ground, but this mower was in good condition, the only thing wrong with it was anything the fool fixing it had touched.. I pulled the blade carrier off it yesterday to fit new blades because the 2 new ones that were on it were an inch short and when I took the blade carrier off the 3 locating tabs were missing, and the blade carrier was not old because it still had the nickel plating on it. This fool should have his fingers smashed so he can never touch anything ever again

Yes I know AVB, but it is a chance you have to take with these motors, they are not worth the hours you can spend pulling them down because nobody is ever going to pay for it

I usually drill the manifold to suit the port on a different carby Tyler but it's not usually worth the time messing around with them.

It's quicker just to grab a better snipper for free ,found a Tanaka today at the end of my street ,took the fuel and primer out of the
Ryobi blower and put them into the Tanaka and it ran well and starts easy.

When I took the flywheel off the Ryobi blower vac it was a little dirty and oily ,the crank seal looked dry ,it had a little bit
of play in the bearing whereas the Ryobi snipper engine crank bearing had no slop in the bearing.

Re: SOS VALVE CLEARANCES Dave107 08/02/24 06:19 AM
Hello again Max

Well, let me begin by saying that the only reason I felt the need to adjust the valves was because I bought it brand new and 12 months had passed. I thought it was running OK.

But now that the adjustment has been done using the method you described Max, it definitely has improved power output. Better throttle response. Not quite so loud on the exhaust too.

Full disclosure, I did put a new plug, fresh oil, new air filter and new set of cutting blades so I can't give you all the credit. Ha ha ha ha. Just kidding.

Thanks again

I haven't put the two catchers side by side to estimate the size difference QSR but thought they would be roughly the
same size.


Cheers
