When he cranked it up to unload it off the trailer it was the last time it ran.
    Don't extrapolate your customers problems to cover the entire run of engines.
    Most Husqvarnas sold down here are fitted with Courages and very few of them have problems with the bolts loosening.
    As for balancing, most are balanced very well, far better than the equivalent Inteks so it will be a 3rd , 4th or higher resonance that is causing the problems.

    The new kohler engine has 2 in it now. Their reason is for quieter but the main is for the balance.

    Picked up another Toro Timecutter with a Courage. This one runs great but has the typical hairline crack. See pics. What can I expect to pay to have this welded or should I just use JB Weld or similar?
