3 years ago I was given a Horse tiller with Briggs engine. I went through the carb and got it running. Used it to till the garden after plowing and cultivation duty. It would run fine for a while then it would act up and only run for a few minutes then cut off. It had electric start and I ran the battery down more than once trying to get it to crank back up. Long story short, I delt with this for 3 years, cussing and fussing at it. Thought about a carb kit but they were $40, HF engine is $100. This year i finally broke down and bought the HF engine. Took a few hours to put it on. Filled it with gas and oil and it fire up on the second pull. It has done that every time since then. Plenty of power and alot less headache! I should have done it sooner.
Anybody need a Briggs 8HP?
