Cherry Red Muffler

Recommended Posts


I have a portable generator with a 16HP B&S. The last couple of times I ran it, the muffler glowed red. I had this happen before on another engine and the valves had no gap. Just dug in and the valves look great, good gap and seats look great. What else could cause this? Thanx, Dave

I'll confess up front that I have no photos. I took this carb & the one on my 917 (Got One!) over to a friend's last night, where he has a commercial-size ultrasonic cleaner. This carb looked OK but definitely benefited from a bath. Put it back on and it runs great! C'mon hurricanes; I'm ready. 666

So glad the ultra sonic cleaner worked for you.  I bought one this summer & it was a tough pill to swallow as far as price goes but they work wonders.  Please let me know what you think of your vibra-tach.  I would feel horrible if it didn't meed your expectations since I recommended it.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
