jet engine leaf blower

Recommended Posts


...well, its not supposed to be. My Little Wonder walk-behind has a poorly running 5hp B&S. Hard to start, needs to run with the chute closed for a while (no work load) before opening the chute to use, uses oil. Today I noticed a little jet engine-like flame coming from the exhaust. I looked closer and the muffler was cherry red. Uncombusted oil residue coating the muffler then burning off? What say ye. Thanx, Dave

Might be out of time. Neighbor sheared flywheel key on his Kohler equipped Deere and was firing late. Ran horribly and muffler glowed red hot 30 seconds after starting. I fixed it for him with 75 cents worth of parts.

      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!😁
