  1. Ah ha! Magically at 5:50(ish) you're talking about the main jet, yet in the background,the fuel pump is already removed! Time travel? Are you related to Doc Brown? Lol!

  2. I love working on small engines. I've never had to rebuild the carb on these opposed twin models before though, in my experience they are very reliable. The V-twins on the other hand, I've had to do carb cleanings on them several times when brought in for service. And usually most of the time you have to do carb rebuilds on 2-cycle carburetors. I really loved your in depth video footage. The vids I have made on small engine service haven't really been how to video's. I have done that before and its just too much work. What I have been doing is just shooting video's for general entertainment purpose's. Glad to see that opposed twin running again. Honestly I wish that Briggs still made those. But everybody wants to drive a race car, so they want V-twins on their mowers too, and rev them up in their garage and pretend they are in Nascar. Keep up the good work Jeff, love your video's buddy. 🙂

  3. Very Good video. I use wooden dowels, stick them in the screw holes, slide all the gaskets and parts over them, then take them out one at a time and install the screws. Seems to help hold all the stuff in place. Thanks

  4. Good video but the gasket you used under the float didn't match the one that you took off the carb. I saw one that looked like it would have matched it better in that handful of gaskets that you had. Just an observation but I didn't know if it might would have effected the carb function.
