I'm working on my friends Murray mower , it has a 12.5 Briggs on it and is about 10 yrs old. The motor wouldn't turn over because the crankcase was full of gas. I took the carb offu and pt a new needle valve and seat in it. I drained the case, took the plug out and turned the motor over to blow the gas out of the cylinder. Put it back together and it started right up and I thought I had it fixed, then it started to smoke more and more . I checked the oil level and it was good. The smoke was white/light blue and I only ran it for less than a minute. Any Ideas ????

The damage may already be done white/blue is oil smoke i would start it up and let it run it may just be oil in the muffler if not your not going to cause any more damage then what is already done

I have a Toro 8-32 briggs and stratton Engine Riding Lawn Mower. I have alot of mowers, this one specifically is not functioning correctly. I have ALWAYS kept up to date on oil changes, gear oil, tune ups, belts, Etc. I bought a new spark plug, degrease the ENTIRE engine and assembly, New Belts, New Tires, Etc. It worked just fine 2 days ago, I went to start it today, and it didn’t make a sound, needless to say prior to me starting it, I sprayed EVERYTHING down, well after it dried again, I tried to start it and finally it turned over but it wont completely start up and run. So I changed the gas, used carb cleaner and cleaned the carb and the jets. Still wouldn’t start, I sprayed some starter fluid in the card intake, still wouldn’t start… I looked online, NO HELP AT ALL! I was thinking of maybe pulling it with my truck and maybe jump starting itr in gear… not sure how successful that may be, but its worth a try. I need help finding out WHY this is happening and yes of course help starting it. BUT, Should this problem ever occur on any of my other equipment i’ll have an upper hand as to a possibility of the problem.

The cable broke in the lower section of my ryobi trimmer rendering it inoperable.. please help! I do have 2 lower attachments for the ryobi trimmer however both the top section and the lower sections are male ends making it impossible to spin the cable. The cable seams to be installed and crimped at the factory to where you cant replace the broken cable. Also i am looking for replacement brushes for the ryobi electric trimmer plus with no luck at this time. please help ! Amarillo Texas.
These inexpensive trimmers are designed to be “throw-aways”. It usually isn’t cost efficient to repair something like this. Do yourself a favor and buy higher quality such as Echo. It will pay for itself and you will have less headaches.
Craftsman lt1100 17.5 ohv engine won’t start without help. Starter won’t spin engine. Battery is new and fully charged. It tries to spin the engine but engine won’t continue to turn over unless I manually spin the top of the engine with my hand. Then it starts right up. I changed out the cables, solenoid with no help. Suspected the starter, took it apart. Brushes are in good condition. Cleaned, lubed it and reinstalled. Same problem. It is like the intial compression stroke is stopping the engine from turning over. New Starter????? Any help would be appreciated!
