Got it running again!

Recommended Posts

Special thanks to UCD for the advice for repairing my cylinder head on my 3212H. I cleaned up the head and used JB Weld on the damaged surface where the gasket seals. Sanded it down flat and got a new gasket from a local small engine shop for only $7.50. Got the head back on and fired it up over the weekend. Sure runs better without the head gasket leaking! Only thing I'm worried about is the JB Weld stuff only works till it gets to 600 degrees. What does a 12hp B&S run at for temp? Now I just have to get the hydro lift working and put a new belt on the blower and I'm all set for the snow!
