It is a pleasure to meet you all!

I'm a seriously demented tinkerer who likes to mess with cars, lawn equipment, plumbing, HVAC and the like. My garage is heated and so my friends all know where to come to fix their cars or small engines in the winter.

Hopefully we can share fixes and exchange ideas.

Thanks Buddy!

Having lots of buddies over is fine as long as they bring stuff....like beer or sodas.

Guys,

The heated garage was easily done and Austen, tell your wife that with that you will stay out of her hair. (but really the peace and quiet is for you)

I use a 100# propane bottle to heat the 2.5 car garage/workshop and that will last most of the winter. Now I actually enjoy doing things when it is snowy out.....like the Snapper rehab below.

This is my 1990 Snapper repowered with a 6hp OHV Tecumseh. What made it so tough was the unavailability of the blade clutch which took years to find. (Pete's Small Engine) I like the thing because the self propelled disc drive is rugged, simple and at least it is easy to get parts for anywhere. It turned out well I think and it has power but this motor has lots of compression that makes starting a chore.
