  1. Hi again Richard, I'm sorry I have searched everywhere for the wheel bolts without success and can only assume that I uncharacteristically threw them away when I installed the new lugs.
  2. Hi Richard, I'll have a look in my spares box as I may have some. I replaced mine with a lug conversion Kit from Red Square, but unfortunately they are awaiting new stock! 7/16"-20 LUG NUT KIT. OUT OF STOCK Take the work out of aligning, holding, and installing your rear wheels with a lug nut conversion kit. NEW, LOWER PRICE. $15.00 PER KIT plus S&H $8.25 Up to 6 kits can be sent in one Priority Mail package for $8.25.
  3. Thankyou Wristpin, that does look like mine, is much clearer than what I have and should be helpful in making the connections.
  4. The numbers on the engine cowl are:- 170702 5638-01 80082211. There is also a spring which has several possible fixing points and the correct one is not obvious to me!
  5. Can anyone help please with a picture or diagram of what fits where on the control unit. It is some time since I dismantled my engine and although I took (the attached) photo of the unit, it is of little help now I wish to reconnect the carburettor, Governor choke and killer switch and nor is the parts and service manual!.
  6. I wished I hadn't watched - it just made me even more envious of your skill.
  7. Hi Richard, I'm fine and hope you are keeping well. Thank you for your post, armed with which I will revisit the Choke. I think you may well be right that the spring has been in the wrong position for some time and is probably bent so I intend to replace it with a new one. I couldn't figure out how to remove the old spring and discovered by trial and error that the lever pulls out of the 'choke butterfly' enabling the spring to be removed, but it will be fiddly to put it back whilst keeping the spring under tension. Regards
  8. Hi again Wristpin. My Internet is now back up and running and the details are 130902 0226-01 75091910. It would be much appreciated if you are able to post an image.
  9. Thankyou both for your responses. I will post the Model Type and Code numbers after Monday when my Internet is due to be restored. I am using someonelse's Internet at the moment and do not have access to these details.
  10. Can anyone help please by telling me where the Choke Spring attaches on the Briggs & Stratton 5HP engine. It has become detached as can be seen in the photos, but is still attached at the other end and does not appear to be broken. It may seem a simple question but after spending some time trying to find the location, it is still not apparent where it connects..
  11. Good news Nigel!- I happened to spot one on Ebay and it has now arrived and been fitted.
  12. Hello Nigel, The recoil housing is alloy, but the main cowling (the part I need!) is steel. Ray
  13. Hello again Nigel. Thank you very much for hunting out the cowling, but regrettably it doesn't look like it will be a suitable replacement. I have now taken some photos of my Cowling (which I should have done in the first place!) and they are attached. Yours seems to be a differing shape and have the fixings in different positions. You can see in the photos that all 3 fixing holes have 'enlarged' and a crack is appearing above the one next to the throttle clip so I think its days are numbered. I'll have to look out for a scrapped engine from a Hayterette or another 21.
  14. Thanks Nigel - that will be great if you have one. I couldn't believe it when after refuelling I pulled the starting rope and the whole cowling can off. The 3 bolt holes had 'enlargened' so I put some repair washers on, bending the two front ones to fit the curvature of the cowling and managed to almost finish the paddock I was mowing when it came off again. It seems to be a problem with Hayter 21s that even with spring washers bolts need more frequent checking to ensure that the vibration of the engine has not loosed them. Ray
  15. Has anyone got a spare cowling for a 5HP Briggs & Stratton vertical crankshaft engine (like that in the photo). I think the part no. was 392277 and is now 490192?
