Sunrunner owners question.

Recommended Posts


Ok guys, I pulled the 12hp briggs motor today and in doing so one of the engine studs has a spring holder on it that holds a tight coil spring that is used as a pto disengagement return spring for the pedal.

How in the world does one go about reattaching the spring?? I spent the better part of 2hrs attempting to get this spring back on with no luck at all.

Well I did manage to get the spring back on today after taking apart 1/2 of the mower to do so only to have the 139" drive belt brake!! Piss me off!:(!

Good news is the horn works!!:(

I guess this is to be expected on a 75 dollar tractor....Slowly but surely this baby is eating me up cash wise...new belt new battery fresh oil new air cleaner element ect...The joy of owning old tractors!! Are we having fun yet??sm00

Does anyone have a spare dash for one of these laying around that is not too expensive??

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
