The diaphragm stretches out in those push mowers and they wont run. It doesn't even look bad, they just don't work. Its a cheap part and is usually the only issue with the lawn mowers. Here is the part: https://amzn.to/2TmP5AP
that mower is one that Walmart put in the dumpster it was thrown away because it was excess inventory that did not sell, and they put foam in the gas tank to make it no good but if you can clean it out good it will run
I'd do my Jobs like this( Fixing Small Engines and Equiptment) during my Winter-in my Heated Garage and get them all fixed uo for the Spring/Summer/Fall. Our Winters last Longer up here In Wisc .. I'd get all my stuff done and then Go around on my SnowMobile and Help my Neighbors with theirs to get done sooner and then we could Snowmobile more , before Spring came..
From the age of 12 I had to know about engines and how to fix just about everything mechanical by 15. I was also home tutored in the UK. My two boys will have to undergo the same learning curve starting next year. These videos are priceless thanks for posting Andrew.
JUST OLD GAS IN THE ATV IF IT IS BROWN OR COULD BE ETHANOL IN NEW GAS SOAKED UP WATER INTO THE FUEL BUT BEST THING TO CURE IT TO STORE GAS LONG TIME IS MAKE SURE GAS CAN OR EVEN A GAS TANK IS SEALED REALLY GOOD FROM OUTSIDE AIR
It would be cool Andrew if you found broken items a long side the road, take them home and fix them and then return them to the house that was throwing them out.....Just for fun and to see the faces of the people you return them to....would make a good video.
I guess they are fun because they are very cheap, fast, and can be carried around easily, I can ride it ok, I think its meant more for kids who would fit it better. The stand up scooter is much more practical.
I like you. it like watching my self , except i throw wrenches and stick around and yelling when i cut my fingers or hitting my head in to some scrap i have laying around.. will continue to watch u , thx.
Its like ASMR for some wierd reason. relaxes me
You are awesome dude and I am very surprised as you are still a young man ! Did you have training to repair engines or self taught ? I used too have a couple of backhoes and was pretty good on them so watching you operate equipment brings back fond memories of my days gone by ! Very impressive worker you are ! :-) Dennis in Western Canada ( Saskatchewan )
Your t-shirt says Caterpillar Peoria, IL, I'm from Peoria, 70 years ago, love your videos, you make engines simple and sweet, I subscribed a few weeks ago and am still catching up, keep up the good work. Jim.
I just stumbled across this channel, and man, I have to say I really enjoy the content. There is nothing better than fixing stuff, that others would consider junk.
And the digging videos are also really fun to watch.
Andrew. A few thoughts:
1. You will take crap in the comments section. That is how youtube works. Everyone is an expert. Your responses are measured and respectful - well done on that. Good advice should always be welcome, but you are more right than most of the naysayers. Book learning is great, but experience is better. Every time. Trust me, I know.
2. You live not too far from me. I used to take my boat out on the Hudson a bit further south than you. I go to Kaaterskill falls pretty much every year. They just put up steps and made it "safer"., which sucks. Anyway, that drone shot was amazing.
3. It is good to see your video views climbing up. I used to be viewer #200 something-or-other on the average video - now you are getting up there. I hope you will resist the temptation to change your approach.
4. You are a Professor, whether you want to admit it or not. Accept this and embrace it - when you are ready, you will know what to do.
5. I speak for a lot of people (who have said the same thing) when I say that I appreciate your transparency. You include a lot of real mistakes and learning and curiosity and close calls. Your videos come across to me almost the way my own brain works. Sort of like ... "let me try this.... oh...that didn't work. How about this..." This is troubleshooting 101, and a lot of people can benefit from your honest approach. Don't change that.
Good luck. Keep putting out this sort of content. It is like an oasis is a sea of fake shiny crap.
i have over 30 years experience in small engine repair ,if i was to do the shithouse sort of repairs you do id go out of buisness ,you are a backyard hack at best ,a danger to yourself and any customers you have . i certainly would not trust anything you fix.
You are quickly becoming my favorite YT channel. Your videos are informative(I learn something every time), humorous and, most importantly, entertaining. I'm almost addicted. Keep up the great work, Andrew!
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
