Most storage unit rental places usually rent trailer parking places around here for cheap. Maybe try that?

@Deleted User did you ever find your car?

2018-01-14 00:56:23 UTC  

I should be all set

2018-01-14 00:57:48 UTC  

What did you end up getting? Got any mods lined up yet?

@Deleted User what car did you get?

@Tanner - SC is that something you just found on the net or did someone you know do it? @Deleted User sweet how are you liking it so far?

2018-01-28 17:06:46 UTC  

Its alright, very economical. Going to pay off another thousand or so and close the loan, then I'll start modding it.

@JesseJames found it on the net

2018-01-28 17:28:44 UTC  

Glad to see you being smart about it. It will be a fun car for ya I'm sure.

2018-01-28 18:14:13 UTC  

Sweet! What all do you have to do to it? I had a buddy who built one into a truggy back when we were all into rock climbing.

2018-01-28 22:37:01 UTC  

Plugs cap wires and everything would be good for it.

2018-01-28 23:05:49 UTC  

Yessir. Will keep you guys posted

So, old Lawn Chief tiller dating back to the 1980s. 5 HP Briggs & Stratton 4 stroke pull start. Haven't used it in a couple of years but kept in pretty good condition. New gas, won't turn over. Bad spark plug; replaced it and tested new one, which works. Still no turn over. Removed and cleaned gas tank, line, filter, and carb. Still nothing. Carb starter fluid. Nothing.

2018-02-07 01:40:39 UTC  

Any ideas?

2018-02-07 01:40:52 UTC  

here's the address for the manual

2018-02-07 01:41:06 UTC  

Model 130202-3205-01

2018-02-07 01:41:39 UTC  

Pull spark plug with wire still attached, pull starter, see if spark is made.

2018-02-07 01:41:56 UTC  

Tested with voltimiter - has juice

2018-02-07 01:42:07 UTC  

also zap test

2018-02-07 01:42:08 UTC  

But does it go ZAP

2018-02-07 01:42:13 UTC  


2018-02-07 01:42:41 UTC  

Fuel tank plugged with debris?

2018-02-07 01:42:50 UTC  

Cleaned it, dried it

2018-02-07 01:42:58 UTC  


2018-02-07 01:43:01 UTC  

Does it flow into the carb?

2018-02-07 01:43:51 UTC  

Seems to. Have to take rubber seal off to check but it's wet in there

2018-02-07 01:44:11 UTC  

Also, “won’t turn over”, you mean “won’t fire”?

2018-02-07 01:44:19 UTC  


2018-02-07 01:44:49 UTC  

You could run the primer button 50 times with the spark plug removed and look to see if gasoline is in the cylinder.

2018-02-07 01:45:00 UTC  

no primer button on that model

2018-02-07 01:45:12 UTC  

Pull start?

2018-02-07 01:45:15 UTC  


2018-02-07 01:45:36 UTC  

but that's a good point

2018-02-07 01:45:44 UTC  

i havent looked into the cylinder while pulling

2018-02-07 01:46:21 UTC  

Gas sitting for a while makes me thing somewhere between tank and cylinder the flow is plugged.
