Hello, I had just got my 122 running the other day after it sat for a couple years with the previous owner and then almost a year with me. I cleaned the carb and done all the regular maint. to it. I was hoping I was going to get to play in the white stuff today but when I got it out I was in the middle of the yard with blade up and heading for the drive way, I stopped and it was idling when all I heard was a pop and it shut down. I was wondering where is the best place to get a rebuild kit? Thanks mike

Assuming you are saying it threw a rod and you are going to fix it yourself,  your best bet would be to go to the "forum" page and look under "site supporters".  Those folks help keep the lights on around here and will have what you need plus some advise if you have any questions.

"Pop" as in a backfire, or "pop" as in metal breaking, or "pop" as in a fuse blowing?

:welcome: glad to have you but sorry on your problem. Like mentioned a better explanation of what kind of pop you heard, what exactly were you doing at the last moment, any smoke or back fire first etc. Let us know.

Sounds like it could be a rod. try to turn the engine by hand. Maybe a nasty backfire, from having the mixture too rich. Explain the noise. If it turns over, but wont start it sounds like the backfire (if that was the noise) may have sheared the timing key.

Thanks guys, the pop sounded like the rod broke. when it made the "pop" sounded like metal clanging around and shut down rite now. I tried to start it after and it turned over faster and seemed like no compression and the motor keep spinning until it slowed enough to stop. All i done was start it and was driving thru the yard and I stopped and it was idling about 1/2 throttle, I was standing beside it and then it broke. IT is a k301a that has never had anything done to it except regular maint. Im not going to complain considering it is a 1965 motor. sorry I didnt elaborate in the org post more.

That is never a fun thing to hear in the middle of the snow.  You must have been around my area, we had 5 inches give or take.  :wallbanging:

 

I do sell rebuild kits.  A complete kit is $100, piston, rings, rod, and gasket set.  You can go as in depth or as simple as you care to do it. 

 

Are you planning to replace the piston, too, or just the rod and rings?  The reason I ask that, is there are two different styles of rods.  If you plan to replace the rod and piston, it doesn't matter, but if you are replacing the rod only you'll have to pull it apart and find out which piston you have so I can match you the right rod.

Elkton?  I work in Harrisonburg, neighbor.  :thumbs:

 

It was a slushy snow.  The ol' Gravely had to sweat to push that stuff around.

well when I bought this 122 the po had changed motors cuz the carb on the original one was messed up, so he had a 126 that he cut up and junked everything but the motor and rear-end so he put the motor form the 126  on the 122 and that was it. I had to rewire it. So I went out sat and put the original motor back on and swapped carbs and she purrs like a kitten. I deff no the rod is broke in the other one but I haven't gotten it apart yet to see what else if anything is messed up. I be-leave they messed with the gov. or it broke inside just dont feel rite. Will keep y'all up dated on the progress.
