Small Engine Oil

September 28, 2009

Small gasoline engines are becoming more and more like miniature versions of automotive engines. Today’s larger small engines are utilizing both air and water cooling, carburation and electronic fuel injection. Some even use electronic control modules or “computers.”

From the beginnings of small engines most were what is known as “flat head” engines. This meant that the engine’s intake and exhaust valves were located in the side of the cylinder next to the cylinder bore. Flat head engines worked extremely well for years but were not very efficient.

Basic Chainsaw Information

September 22, 2009

chainsawWarning: Chain saws are very useful tools but they can be very dangerous. So please be careful when using a chain saw.

You should always match the saw to the job at hand. For occasional use, a small, 14” or 16” bar on a 2.5 cubic inch saw, or smaller, is best for run of the mill landscaping jobs and small tree trimming chores.

Chainsaw Depth Gauges

Chainsaws use a chain with both right and left-handed cutters to saw the wood. The cutters have a depth gauge which controls the amount of cut each tooth “bites.”

In order to insure the saw chain cuts properly, the cutters need to have the same relationship right to left with the depth gauges. If the cutters are of unequal length from left to right, the chain will cut in an arc toward the longer side.

Briggs & Stratton Recoil Starters

September 16, 2009

On older recoil start Briggs & Stratton engines, there is a starter clutch. It’s a mechanism that utilizes ball bearings on a cam to catch the flywheel and rotate the engine. The starter clutch doubles as the flywheel hold down nut.

If your rope is being thrown back out of the recoil housing, this is caused by the starter clutch locking up. If there is a high pitch squealing noise coming from under the starter recoil housing then there is a good chance that the start clutch is bad. The best way to repair these problems is to replace the starter clutch with our part number DOP43-404.
