  1. Now that makes sense, sometime this year I put a different gas cap on it because the old one wasn't screwing down all the way. Go figure. Will change cap and mow this weekend and see what happens Thanks
  2. I finally got the coil changed, and this made no difference. I'm thinking fuel problem, because now I noted when it dies out, if you wait a few minutes, it will restart and sputter and I made it back to the garage like this, dying out every 50 feet or so
  3. Thanks for all input, hope to have time to work on it this week. Coil is cheap enough I'm most likely going to replace it due to old age
  4. I have a 16hp briggs from a workhorse 1600 in my 414-8. mowed good all last year. This year it runs fine for about an hour,then sputters or misses, and yesterday mowing it actually died and would not restart right away. after sitting for a few hours, it started, still missing, but enough to drive back to the garage. So far I have changed the spark plugs with no difference. Any suggestions or similar problems that may be helpful to fix this? Thanks in advance for any help.
  5. You could also use red locktite on the set screw rather than a lock nut
  6. Jazzed up WH Black Hood

    Is that a mustang emblem on the hood? I like it!
  7. what a picture

    That's the one that was previously listed as a "John Deere 400". At least it has some of it's dignity back now. Maybe someone went to look at it and wised up the seller
  8. Belated introduction

    Second that
  9. That was kinda what I was thinking also. Don't seem to be too much wheel horse action here, the same 10 different tractors have been posted for sale for the last 6 months it seems like
  10. There are things for sale on local CL that may be of interest to others on this forum, I do not have room or collect. Can these be posted, and if so where?
  11. Regretted Projects

    after wrecking the trans on the sand rail, i decided to pull the rough running engine apart, found one cylinder had nothing in it. I don't remember if there was any rod there, but no sign whatsoever of a piston. pretty much decided the fun was over then, and got rid of it all
  12. Seems to be a few of these poor fellows lately. Maybe we need a "wall of shame" to post them on
  13. Regretted Projects

    As an ex VW owner, I think l know the answer to that one. my projects were a sand rail (3 cylinder), dune buggy, Baja bug, old rusty beater. Enjoyed the fun, but not the fixing constantly. Finally got rid of all them for good
  14. Funny green and yellow tractor

    Did anyone else notice the horn? My mom has a JD lawn mower, and it don't have a horn!
  15. Funny green and yellow tractor

    I also thought the one eye thing was good on it. That custom grille is different too
