The Haban tow behind tiller repair has been Interesting, to say the least, frustrating to be honest and not worth it so far.
Stupid thing needed new grommets on the vent tube. great.... 8.00 worth of parts. It takes a week to get the parts, because fuel is too expensive for me to drive all over town to collect all the parts one piece at a time.
Picked up parts yesterday morning.
Carb and tank come off no problem
Go to pull the muffler, and the bolt snaps off in the cylinder.
I spend the next hour or so drilling the bolt out and retapping the hole, only to find I don't have a bolt to put in it.
So this morning I went and picked up a length of Grade 5 threaded rod, and made a stud for it. (the threads didn't turn out great)
Everything went smooth for a about an hour.....
Got every thing back together, was testing control movements and the stupid crappy little plastic choke arm breaks off.
Crap. now it will be another bunch of calls to all the local shops to see if any one has the part, and a panic to get it installed if I want to return the equipment Saturday morning.
Assuming any one in town has one.. In which case it will be middle next week at earliest for parts.
And I can't (in good conscience) charge for the choke repair since I had the choke rod in the wrong hole. I probably won't charge for the broken bolt fix either.
