    Put engine back into ride on but wont start now

    Thanks sorted it out, i think the wiring going from the governor to the ignition area wasnt making proper contact, re done that and fired up now Thanks
  3. Put my briggs stratton 8hp engine back into my lawnflite 504 and now it wont start :-( don't seem to have spark, it turns over ok but think i have connected a wire wrong somewhere. Where should the engine kill wire go? Is that the yellow one? Thanks

    Removing a stuck main engine pulley shaft

    Hi, its a Lawnflite 504 with a briggs and stratton 8hp engine Thanks
  6. Hi, im trying to remove the main engine pulley shaft as its broken but I cant get it off, its been on for 25 odd years so seems stuck in place. I have the engine out but just cant get it off :-( any tips? I could cut it off but wanted to try and save it if possible to take to a fabricator to see if it could be welded back together. My other idea if i cant get it off was this that i drew while at work do you think this will work? Or instead of that bolt going through the side, a better idea maybe is to get a longer main shaft bolt and washer to hold it all together? Forgot to mention the pipe i have to slot in is a nice tight fit

    MTD Lawnflite parts suppliers or breakers

    Thanks tried him but non sadly :-( Think i will take it to a fabricator to see if they can weld it back on as £100+ is close to what i paid for the full machine lol Hard part looks like getting the shaft off...... Thanks

    Got it running and cutting great and then snap, the metal drive pulley snapped clean off the shaft going to the engine!!!! Could this be welded back onto the shaft or will that off balance it? Thanks

    Engine only running on choke

    Yea, that's what i was thinking, burning oil Will get a one ordered, but £10 for a spring!! How can you adjust the max revs? Would that be by the govenor adjuster part? Thanks

    The smoke at max revs is more grey / blueish looking but back it off a notch and theres no smoke Just noticed The govenor link spring that goes over the throttle arm has snapped :-( Is the spring an import part?

    Thanks found this one on Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/Digital-Tachometer-Small-Engine-Non-contact/dp/B00HWLTW90/ref=sr_1_1?rps=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1527962133&sr=8-1&keywords=Laser+tachometer&refinements=p_76%3A419158031 Set it to a idle RPM that sounds like my push lawnmower for now. Only thing ive noticed is at full throttle it sort of sputters and puffs smoke out the exhaust, but knock the throttle back a notch or two its fine. But Maybe the missing carb gasket could be the problem for that...
