LOL. Tore down my B&S on my Toro leaf blower last fall and I can't seem to remember where the little wire goes, that apparently allows the motor to shut down when you throttle down. It's just hanging in the air, and, no, I cannot shut it down unless I pull the plug wire.
Also, when I pull on the shaft for the blower, I get a bunch of end play. I put new crank bearings in last fall.
