  1. A little maintence and helpful tool

    Enjoy those times with the kids they grow up very fast. Mine are 38 and 32 but I still have memories of those precious times.
  2. Happy Birthday Oldlineman!

    Thank you guys for the well wishes. At this point in life we do not get as excited about birthdays as we have in the past and am sure some of you know what I am talking about. Just thankfull for the smaller things in life, my health my family, my faith in Jesus and for good friends. Thanks again Bob
  3. Middle spindle bad?????

    I would drop deck and check that nut is tight on middle spindle as far as the cracks in deck at that spot that is common. I have fixed some by welding and or plating with 1/8 in steel or alu. plate. Good luck, others will help with other ideas i am sure.
  4. I am praying for all in the area, especially my daughter and son in law and three grandsons in south east Ga. We feel so helpless here in Pa.
  5. Happy Labor Day!

    I being a 41 year retired Journeyman Lineman, member of L U # 126 IBEW, Norristown Pa. I second what Sarge just said. I would not have the retired life I have without my 41 years working UNION and all of the former IBEW and all UNION members that have gone on before! Bob

  10. Onan p216G bad after 10..15 minutes

    check the gas cap, it has a vent that may be blocked and will cause a vacuum on the gas tank. When engine starts to shut down try opening the cap and see if that helps.

  12. Gearbox 5025

    not an expert carlos but I believe a slite in out movement 1/6 to 1/8 inch is normal. One of our transmission guys will correct me if that is not right.
  13. Need 5 speed transmission

    try A to Z in our vender section.
  14. Magnum 8 stater

    I believe your brushes need to go on top of the springs , as mentioned above you can make clips that will hold them in place while reasembling the starter.
