So I changed the plug and that didn't seem to do anything.

I checked the oil again...turns out engines don't like operating with no oil! Whoooops! What I kept seeing on the dipstick I wiped off...and it was 3-dimensional on the shop towel.

I added like half a quart of 5W-30 I had sitting in the garage and it started on the third pull. Still louder than it was, probably because it ran without oil, so we'll see how long it lasts, but I plan on changing the oil again here shortly. Just wanted to put more in to "collect" whatever was sitting in there, in case it turned to goo.

That's the other thing I should probably do is change the oil, not sure the last time if ever that it's been changed haha. I'll have to do that and the fuel filter before the next time I mow. Just changed the blades, deck belt, spark plug, and air filter along with greasing up all of the moving parts. Thing works so much better now, the next step will be taking it to my friends house to get the cracked dash frame welded up so it steers a little straighter lmao

I just changed the Steering shaft and crescent gear on my Husky. It steers a lot better now.

I pieced this one together from 2 mowers haha one I got for free that was my grandma's that the engine wouldn't work on and all the deck pullied were seized up and one I bought for 20 bucks that the rear end was burned up in haha, spent about an hour swapping the rear end over and now it's time to fix the rest of the stuff up. Got about 200 bucks total into it now and it works great just need the one piece welded up because it would be quicker to weld it than swap the dash

Now I really need to get the carb cleaned and adjusted on my weed wacker so that it will actually cut

Got 4 weed wackers for about 10 bucks total and the one actually runs without even messing with it but it just doesn't spin fast enough to really cut and dies out the second you let go of the trigger

Must have mowed a lot of gravel to wear blades like that, I put mulching blades on mine. Supposedly they did not exist for my Husky, then I repaired a truck cluster for a guy and when he came to pick it up I was in the process of pulling the blades off of my deck and told him I'd rather have the mulching blades. He said I'll trade you 3 mulching blades for your repair. Since I'm all for barter I agreed. So he got into his truck and drove back to his shop and brought me back 3 new mulching blades that fit my deck. He was probably financially ahead on the trade but for me it was a win-win and I'm okay with that. He even offered to put them on for to which I politely declined.

I'm pretty sure they were the original blades so they would be 13 years old, plus my brother in law rigged it up when the rear end started going bad and would only go in reverse so that he could still mow in reverse. Did that for like 3 or 4 years before he finally bought a new mower
