  1. Really enjoyable video 🙂

    Love to see dissasemblys, i learn so much and primes me for the day i have to take my 3.5 briggs&stratton mower to bits, panic panic ha ha :-):-)

  2. Glass shards work very well in cleaning the inside of an old metal gas tank,just be careful not to cut yourself,bust the glass so it is real small,put the shards in the tank with some carb cleaner,cap it and shake the shit out of it, and drain and clean it again,it will be shiny,I have done many like that.

  3. I used an old motor like that with an horizontal shaft. I welded a bracket on for a alternator and daisy chained old car batteries together. I also built a gasifier to run the motor off of wood

  4. How did you remove the pin that moved the arm in the points and condenser set up?  I am working on one of these engines from 73, and everything works except that the pin is stuck so there is no spark. I tried using pliers to take it out, but it would not budge and I didn't want to mash the pin too much.

  5. Just coat the gaskets with white grease and reuse them if they come off in one piece (not the head gasket in this case if it pulled apart). New gaskets are a waste of money if the old ones come off in one piece. 
    Coating old gaskets with grease and reusing them is straight out of the Briggs and Stratton service manuals from that era.

  6. I've got the 60102 too, mounted on an edger. It was out under a tarp last winter and got rust on the flywheel…it was working fine before this. I've cleaned the flywheel and magneto surfaces but get no spark. I noticed what I'm guessing is a broken wire coming out of the case behind the flywheel. I don't know, but suspect, that's my spark problem. I don't know where it is supposed to be hooked up to. Can you get me going again?

  7. That wire that's broken or seems to go to nothing should go to your condenser, I don't think that year engine had the throttle kill for the engine,as for removing the pin for the armature that make your points funtion,use a pair of tweezers or needle-nose plyers, but for your condeser,the spring is tricky to pull down to insert the wire,but it could be done…

  9. Does this engine have a carburetor diaphragm that goes bad? Mine isn't getting fuel into the cylinder and don't know what I need to do to the carb. It had been outdoor in a dog house for 20 years.
