    Lawnmowers!

    We just got gifted a mower & this is the email that ensued.

    Just a couple of things about the mower, nothing major. The blade will
    need to be tensioned slightly before each use with a 16mm spanner, as
    the original fibre washer wore out and could not be sourced from
    anywhere!? I replaced it with a homemade teflon one. Doesn't need much
    , more of a check. It will rattle loose if this isn't done at least
    every second use.

    The oil hasn't even been checked for a couple of years.

    I was fooled into thinking there was a problem with pull start
    mechanism, then maybe an internal problem, by the ripcord being
    stripped out of my hand on compression stroke when starting. This this
    turned out to be again linked to the loose blade.

    The only reason I thought this mower had had it completely was that
    after I put it back together and started it without losing fingers or
    a blade, it ran better than ever for 2 laps of the yard, then died
    again, never to even fire. I let out some profanities, then a WOO HOO!
    and decided to buy a new one.

    After buying and using new, more powerful mower, put everything away
    in the shed, pushed the sparkplug lead onto old mower properly, and
    started the bugger on the first half a pull. I then walked outside ,
    looked at the lawn and said "The old one did a better job!"

    I hope this mower serves you guys well.

    Hopefully, this mower has a seat and a holder for tinnies.

    No worries, Warzy probably already sharpened the blade and "spot welded" it in place

    Cheers to friends .... and their attempts to maim us!

    LMFAO. So far we both still have all limbs attached. I am not going to turbo this mower as now it is in the public domain here on Puff, Eyesack would probably shoot over here and hijack the mower.
