    Someone asked for a better picture of this.
    It's really an easy job. If you have the gear puller you can use the same pully but the 4 inch x 3/4" shaft works great. I had to put the pully on backwards.

    That's a troybilt econohorse.
    To get the throttle cable hooked up would require shortening it and anchoring it to the muffler heat shield. I'm good with the hand one.

    When I bought it I started it and it smoked like hell I knew that Briggs days were numbered. I got two seasons out of it and I think it lost compression.
    Might rebuild the Briggs for kicks we worked on that same engine in junior high school kind of. We had a small engine test and we all got one to work on..
    Seems like forever ago. My junior high was in the old high school. Very big school. Had an indoor pool.
    The shop classes were more high school but we got to use them. I always wondered why it was so nice.
    We had a forge or whatever its called for melting pot metal and casting with sand. That was fun but I sucked bad at that. Oh yeah and we had lathes. Imagine turning a 13 yr old loose on a lathe today. Lol


    The predator is really nice imo.

    The mods can fix it. They're diligent and nice about this sort of thing.
    I'm so ashamed.
