Pd $3 for a small book Chiltons Repair and Tune-up Guide for Small Engines 2nd Edition. It's from '79 so fits right in with stuff we are working on most. Has the basics of tools and engine workings and making repairs in front and brands later chapters. Covers some odd ones,  Briggs, Kohler, Onan, Wisconsin, and Wisconsin Robin, Tec Lauson in 4 and 2 stroke sections and even Clinton (spit!) engines has big section. Nice diagrams and some little diff "HOME" methods that the orig manuals don't show how to do that is neat. I like it!

That sounds like a neat book.  Where did you find it?

Sounds good. Nothing like having a manual in your hand when you need some info. Much better than trying to look up the info on line and then print it off without getting grease all over the keyboard!

...and even Clinton (spit!) engines

 

You knew that would get a reaction out of me, didn't you?

Ah Ben, he means spitting with love to shine it up so it will look so good in front of the Speed-crap (Speedex).
