Re: [Appliances] Need to know where to get my gasget's from.

said by diablo1892:

Engine is still good as new but wasn't running right so i thought tearing it down and rebuilding it would be so much better than buying a whole new one.

Specifically what is the reason for the rebuild? Valves? Rings? Low compression? I don't see any reason to rebuild an engine that is "still good as new" when it sounds more like it just "wasn't running right" without more information as regards the actual problem.

I admit I lied there.. I am no professional in any of this kind of stuff (maybe more vehicle). I was told that my carbitrator may need cleaned out. After priming on it atleast 2-3 times and then firing up just fine (5 minutes later) it starts bogging down the entire time i mow and its been doing this for atleast a whole year now.

I'm not a professional in any of this, i should say, because i never messed with such small parts. Me and my uncle work on vehicles, vehicles is where i'm better with. With small engine type of appliances, I think all it would need is some stuff to clean with, new belt and all coming to a cheap cost but nooo, supposedly its expensive (according to my uncle).

I thought rebuilding it would be fairly close to "sham wham bam thank ya ma'am" so to say. Just get some clean stuff (couple dollars) and then buy the gasgets (witch are expensive i guess).

probably just a gummed up carb. put some seafoam in the gas and see if it runs better after a tankful or two.
