So this isn't the Techumseh forum but I'm desperate!
Incredibly, I can do a few DIY repairs on my MBs with relative success, but I can't get my freakin' lawn mower to start! I hate to have to go out and buy a new one because any that have the same features are close to $400! Mine's only three years old anyway!
It's a 6.75HP Sears Craftsman. I changed the oil, spark plugs and filter. Had to replace the whole pull starter unit a few months ago, and after the stock transmission engagement cable broke twice, retrofitted with a homegrown aircraft cable.
This year, the mower requires about 1000 tries before it starts. I have to set aside about 45 minutes just for the starting ritual!! I also use fuel stabilizer. I have a compression gauge, but I don't know what readings I should be getting.
Anyone here have a clue what is going on? My right shoulder is incredibly sore!!!
