  1. what a smashing teardown, ive never seen one of those but i have a good idea how to deal with one now, thanks 🙂

    Yep EricTheCarGuy is a smashing man, like yourself, sharing your skill in simple vids 🙂

    that engine looked cruddy but not un-repairable.

  2. You shouldn't have to replace the end of the ratchet for the pull start. if it starts to squeal and and seize onto the shaft, simply sand the end of the crank where it rides, run some steel wool inside the starter clutch, and lube with Automatic Transmission fluid. Great video man, just got done doing this myself. I got a Snowbird Snowblower from my grandpa and im cleaning everything up real nice.

  3. nice video ..I was looking for your link on how to remove the flywheel …did you make one ..you cut that out on your video and was hoping to see that part especially …thanks mate ..

  4. Ok I got a 8 hp briggs moter that is acting like it is trying to lock up n it is a pull start so I turn it backwards about 3 times n it will try to crank then stops like it gets oil on top how do u fix it

  5. so I am wanting to revive a 5 horse horizontal with dual shaft (PTO) exactly like this one, but the cylinder wall is in bad shape. if I get another Briggs 5 horse, with a single shaft, should I be able to transfer the sump with the cam speed reducer onto the newer Briggs? any special tools needed? I wasn't able to find a video of that on the tube. might be an interesting project
