Oh you're just saying that because you have one! Lol. Just playing with you, I have heard lots of good things about them and this one is full pressure lubed with a Mikuni fuel pump which is awesome!

I'm just going to start a thread on the tractor later but in the mean time, does anyone have any knowledge/experience/opinions on Aisan carbs? Until now I don't think I've ever actually seen or owned one but I'm impressed with the design and build quality.

Honestly while on the subject of vanguard.

Yes they are the best and probably the only Briggs I like as a mechanic.
Iam more a Kawasaki guy myself though.

I prefer the single cylinder flatheads myself, they don't get any more basic and are really reliable

Unfortunately they have long been relegated to the collector and diy'ers.
Iam talking from a mechanics perspective.
Personally i like flatheads but I've never seen one in the shop.

That being said I often say that Briggs makes an excellent engine once in a while but Kawasaki makes a good engine all the time

Can't argue with you, I agree the Kawis are good engines I just hate the amount of electronics on every one I've seen. I'm adept at electrical but it's usually time consuming and costly to repair in my experiences, one reason all my toys and even my vehicles are all pre-millenium, less to go wrong!

So here's a nice wiring job by the guy next door.
Gator 815 diesel about 1.5 year old.
Customer had previously had disagreements on payments so resorted to an electrician to fix it.
Iam not to the person to disclose any details I just fix stuff but I made some extra insurance vids for myself.

Iam assuming that he just wanted to bypass the control unit inside the display but failed horribly and it kept eating shut-off solenoids and fuses.

Going to take about a day of work and a new display to get this sorted out

So, I have a 32hp Briggs vanguard engine kicking around
I know iam still working on something but I've been thinking about future plans for a while.

Are zero turns allowed in the build-off?
I know it hasn't been done before but if so iam really considering something.
They are tubular frame

Well I got 2 massive front forks that should fit a 20 inch tire and these ones come standard with suspension but don't know what way I want to go really.

Either a rig with 4 or 6 wheels with 30 or 32 inch tires or perhaps a tracked machine.
I have the parts, just need to think wether I really want to and how.

Thanks for taking care of the BO thread Mighty. I hate it too but life just has a habit of getting in the way. Especially as you get older.

Also just thought I would remind you that the MMs original thread is still locked. I would appreciate it if you could unlock it when you get the chance. Thanks!

I genuinely have no words for that… scratch

I found out today that there’s an auction near me coming up with over 100 lawn tractors on the block…. this may not end well for me. OFF-Topic Anything 2022 - Page 21 1098998679 OFF-Topic Anything 2022 - Page 21 2664539216 lol!

Sounds like a great place to spend a copious amount of money,
I know a mortgage broker if you need one.

Too bad @doug doesn't see any of that.  It would keep the site paid up with the premium plan all the time.

OFF-Topic Anything 2022 - Page 21 Img20115

Totally not lawnmower related but I was pleasantly surprised with this garden hose nozzle from claber (Italian)

Certainly not the top of the range but today on Yom Kippur when every jew in the world decides to stay in bed it decided to stop working.

Usually I just buy a new one but I was forced to open it if I can Jerry rig something.
Pleasant surprise but they are fully rebuild able and a few o rings later it works like new

Lovely thing in a throwaway society.
3 years of heavy use and ready for another 3
