Just a little update- the 3 Hp Briggs is slowly dying, it is lacking power, and shows signs of an early silvery oil failure, and some torture. No read head lift on this pumping, maybe 4' at best..... but 150 ' of discharge line, uphill,,,,

Ah well, time for another motor. Whadda ya want for 75 buckaroos on CL ? The suction hose, screens and pump were well worth that. :thumbs:

got one here (a 3 HP Briggs horiz shaft)  very low hours sat way more than it was used, was on a power washer that froze

gas tank was nasty (cleaned out and coated, will never have "that" problem again)  carb cleaned and fresh diaphragms, just missing (I forget which now) the gov link or spring so I havent tried to start since I cleaned it all up. 1 hr south of Chicago
