Got beer?

I personally would sell it and buy a mower with a Honda engine. But I have no skill at repairing small engines.

Pulling down a small engine takes several hours, nothing is beyond normal mechanical skills.
The big problem is getting Correct repair parts.
As far as "best Engines" I still think Briggs and Straton is best. Tecumseh came to the front with it's vertical shaft for rotary mowers.
Honda is new to the game and I know of a lot of snow blowers that have lasted years. But if you need Parts, Amazon is the only place to find reproduction parts.

Worth a tear down? or just junk it?


Depends on how convenient it is for you to do the work. Got tools? Got space? Got time? Got know-how? Got beer? Then why not go ahead and have a look-see?

I think I am going to send an older mower out for carberator repairs. Weed whacking the whole back yard sounds silly.
For now I am going to park the Craftsman until I feel like a tear down or temperatures drop below 85 and humidity falls.
I have other work to do before it turns to Fall.
