Went to start the L/60
yesterday to haul some plants to the back garden, stripped the starter gear on the 8 HP Briggs!
I had a new gear on hand, so no big deal to change it. Started right off with the new gear in place, so off I went to the garden. Tractor set under an apple tree for an hour of so, then when I got ready to come back to the house, no start!
The engine is locked up! :confuse:
Fortunately, I had a newer 12-1/2 HP Briggs on hand for a winter project! :smile1: Today, I got the old one out & "new" one in with only a little more frame notching. Will have to wait until Wednesday to get some parts to finish the job, plastic elbow on gas line is cracked. ~~ grnspot
