  1. Let"s do this in a real world setting where you are being attacked by mosquito's ,its 90 degrees feels like 250,sweating you ass off,bolts stripping for no reason kids running crazy knocking parts everywhere,dog trying to pee on you from behind .Finally you get it done,put it back together and still doesn't start !! Then the neighbors are calling the cops cause the crazy guy next door is shooting his lawnmower

  2. Yep, I put it back on wrong gotta tear it back down tomorrow … I Bet it will run when I set it right. But hey at least I have a clean carb lol. I at first thought it was a broke valve, very low compression, so glad I found this video and I hope it fixes my mower.

  3. The engine cover is mostly for looks, a bit of a pre screen for leaves and such. Clean all fins and blower impeller while you at it. New plug, fresh gas and oil, air filter, and she'll run like a top. Sharpen blades, grease wheels, wash and your mower is ready to tackle that beautiful lawn once more!
