Well i just brought home my first bolens 2 weeks ago. I have been searching craigslist for a deck but people around here are nuts 200-400 when all i wanted was the spindle. So this poped up on craigslist for a steal it's a G10. I paid 200 but for the mower deck wheel weights and came with a rough snow plow i think i did alright.

John, nice looking g10. And it sounds as if you got yourself a good deal.

BTW, those Briggs are infamous for rodent hotels... I think it's the way the tin is, but it's weird.

As for the spark plug wire, do you have a pic of the damage done? You may be able to remove the wire from the coil, splice and silicone, IDK...

Yea i have had a lot of issues on newer B&S motors that were on the EX inlaws trail mower without mothballs come winter they ate the plug wire. Tomorrow im going to head up to my dads to rip the cover off and see the dammage but it spins over with the starter carb needs a rebuild.

Congrats on a good score. I've had some success with liquid electrical insulation. Paint on several coats and they run. Good Luck, Rick

Danged nice G19 there! Those wheel weights are going for $100.00+ on eBay, and I see that it even has the original muffler.  BTW, that's a 1977

That was my thinking in my area these wheels weights would go for 150+. i was after the newer styly mower deck setup with wheels myself since the 42" one i have with out scalps the lawn to much and i hate scalping with a passion.

 

The way i look at it is like this

wheel weights-100

mower deck setup with all brackets needed to swap to the older tube frame-100

so i got the tractor and very rough snow plow fo free.

Ok was able to gwt up to my dads tonight and get the front cover taken off the Briggs motor and teh mice were kind enough to leave me enough wire so that tomorrow i can solder on a new spark plug wire.

 

I also tore off the mower deck and started investigating that. The deck was very hard to turn after taking the cover off it was just jammed with dirt took a look at the gears and they are mint and the fluid was clean.

 

Here is the deck serial number anyone know all hand what size belt to pick up at napa and what type of blades can be made to work i need something that helps get the grass out quicker my grass is stupid thick.

I'm thinking even though there is a spring to take up slack, that it still would be too long.

Have you tried searching the part number online?

I'd get a kevlar belt if possible

I called my local napa and they ordered me in one for tomorrow.

 

So some good news it runs and not half bad a little smoke at first but that was from teh WB40 i sprayed the cylinder with still leaking fuel from the carb so i need to clean it.

 

Time for my next issue i have no brake or clutch it seems. The brake pedal has no spring to it and someones getto fix was to add a return spring not fix the issue. Also the brake pads are worn to nothing so ill need to replace those.

 

The clutch has me a little baffled if i step on the pedal and stop the drive shaft with my foot i can change gears just fine does this mean the clutch is ok?
