Right in the middle of the leaf harvest and my cobbled leaf vac decides to deep six on me. 5 HP Briggs...topped with oil in the morning for some reason it runs low in the afternoon. I noticed it when I went to start it..it was locked up. Yikes! Fearing the worse...I topped it with oil...pulled the plug and dropped a bit of oil in the head. Manually started pulling the impeller blades through and slowly she loosens up. Gave it a start and everything looks good. Great Save! I think when about 45min later something let's go inside the engine. Clank clank clank ..smoke..I quickly shut her down. Currently weighing my options. Horror Fright has a 6hp :engine on sale for $99 this month ...same size crank(3/4") and keyway (3/16)so t hat is what I am leaning towards. Also surveying Craigslist.
