    Honda fans, look what people throw away

    It was cold when i picked it up and it was left out next to the full trash cans Fri. From personal experience maybe the owner just had a bad day when it wouldn't start and he gave up or maybe the person never turned the gas on and "told dad"(the valve was shut off). For myself almost all the...

    Craftsman Snowblower - Throwing Drive Belt

    Can you post a pic? Sounds like a pulley moved from your description. If the pulleys don't line up, then yeah, you get this. If so, just pull out the allen wrench and loosen 1 pulley and move it back.

    Relatively new

    I have a engine pulley off my Case Skidsteer that cracked like yours. I just had the crack welded. If the flywheel is aluminum, that's nothing. If it is the magnesium then it might be difficult to find a welding shop - it was for me and my BG75 mount breaking off.

    Pls look at this B&D hedge trimmer and give me your op of points needing sharpening

    I don't think it is a total loss. Given i have a Stihl hedge trimmer but i don't take it apart to sharpen the cutting edge. If u don't already have a dremel tool, u can get a el cheapo - 2 use similar one at harbor freight for $10. Sharpen the edges you can get to now, then run it until the...
