Looking for a book about small engine rebuilding.

What book do you guys recommend? I have a B210 that will need help someday and a pair of Kohler and a Techumse (sp) Troybuilt tillers that will need help sooner or later. I have rebuilt big tractor and car engines but never a lawnmower engine and I am looking for info such as setting timing, valve clearance and govenor adjustment. Thanks

Hey Matt! I'm not sure about Tecumseh or Kohler but I could fill you in on Briggs and Stratton. B&S publishes service and repair instuctions on most all of thier basic model series engines. These manuals are real in depth and the steps are all laid out like a Chilton's manual which brings me to my next point. I have seen at various stores Chilton's manuals on small engines. How well they cover the different brands and thier ignition and carburetion I'm not sure about, but it's worth looking into. I know I haven't helped you much but my advise is to explore at auto parts stores for these manuals. Have you asked your local small engine repair shop about these manuals? Good luck Randy

Matt Kohler and Tecumseh both make an excelent service manual that can be used for detailed repairs. The Kohler manual is publication # ENS-575 and covers all K engines 4 to 16 HP. It gives all specs for the engines and is very good. Tecumseh has several manuals and you will need the one for your group of engine. IE They have a mechanics handbook for 3 to 10 HP engines. This is for the side valve engines and not the overheads. They also have manuals for other types of there engines. I have found these manuals to be a lot more detailed and easier to use than the generic manuals that try to cover all brands. For the difference in price I feel it is worth the extra cost to have the origional manufacturs manual. If you need more info drop me a note and I will try to give you more details. Larry
