I'd like to hear the details to this story too.  Surely you don't have that many Briggs and Stratton engines that would need all those parts.

I have a good friend that took over his grandfathers small engine parts and repair business.He no longer does small engine repairs just sells parts.He cleaned his shelves off of the older stuff that he does not sale and i bring them home and try to make a new home for them.Mostly the new home is mine as i have a lot of parts for engines that no body seems to have.I do find some good stuff every once in a while.

He had no list so if some one need a part i do not know what is in the mess.Most off this stuff is small under 10.00 dollars and some NLA

Wow nice haul! I am sure there has got to be something in that mix I could use.

 

I am still trying to get used to your new name. Just glad you didn't change to a new picture yet :D :poke:

Looks good, Don.  Is it a lot of bolts and springs?

If his luck goes like mine, no matter how big the lot, the part you need is never included.  Don't ask how I know. :wallbanging:

The part was not in the boxes,that is the interesting thing.He has done some moving around his shelves and had some stuff up on the counter,there it was.I brought these home any way since i could not do any thing outside yesterday.
