almost inspires one to go and modify the ride-on. Wonder how you fit a blow off valve

Nice. Terror rather than terroir, I see.

RE: The petrol powered garden impliment thread.
Your correspondent has been fixing a thing.

Specifically, replacing the starter cord on this mower which is now (the cord, that is) new, shiny and equipped with go faster stripes.

Mercifully and despite the engine being made in America by the Americans the job was completed with 7mm and 10mm sockets. I had visions of having to find 7/16ths BSF sockets or something similarly exotic. Whether Briggs and Stratton actually intended metric sockets to be applied to their bolts is another matter.

Sadly and despite the go faster stripes the accursed thing is still a pain to start from cold.

Briggs and Stratton made in that little town Usa, China

Looks like a Renault mower so it could be the Euro model

That engine will never die, clean out the carb to cure that starting problem.

They grenade very spectacularly. Put a rod through the crankcase of my 15HP B&S in the ride on mower. Since replaced by Chinese copy of Honda OHV

I assume the big end let free. That must be rare.

something let go that cracked the crankshaft carrier and I ended up with a sump full of broken pieces. It had done a lot of hard work over 12 years.
