  1. Oh… it never ends… My incandescent headlamp just went out on my Bolens 824. It dies while it was on during the only night time use I've ever done… at the worst possible time. The bulb did not blow and I don't see a fuse anywhere. I wired in a LED tractor light with no results. Any ideas?

  2. Wow… the older I get, the less I know. I looked at this vid for a few days because I couldn't understand what I had done after my carb rebuild that made the linkage so screwed up. It finally dawned on me today after viewing this once again that I had the throttle arm hanging down instead of up- where it needs to be. I couldn't understand why the arm was rubbing against the throttle cable shroud, then my mistake finally hit me. I removed the carb and repositioned the governor linkages so the arm is up. All is good now. 

    You keep saying "thanks for watching", and I appreciate that, but more so… I want to sincerely thank you for making these videos. I've learned a lot from all of them.  If you ever have a guitar-related issue, please don't hesitate to ask.
