Self propelled Craftsman 6.5 HP mower setting out for th etrash people or people like me.
So wondered when I got it home if it would start as most are pitched beause they have crudded up carbs.
Primed it and 2 pulls it was running but making a GAWD AWFUL noise underneath.


Flip it over and this is what I find .
I went to the sears parts wearhouse in Flint to buy the part. Splirged and got a new blade and the bolt to hold the blade on the crank.


$36.00 in parts, could have been less if i had gotten a new blade and bolt at TSC.
Nice mower almost as nice as my AWD Husky is for mowing ditches.



:D Al

Husband has been recently going to some house auctions that say garden supplies. He'd come home with some good stuff for little money. one of which was a good self starting push mower for 5 dollars. and then there are lots of garden tools, hanging things, etc.

I found one last year that you could hardly pull the rope out. They had overfilled the oil. I drained it, cleaned the plug and it started right up. I love the curb!
