I think my 1982 Lawn Boy (Model 7268) may have died. So, If I need to be in the market for a new walk behind mower, What do you all say is the best one for the price. I don't need anything fancy, just reliable.
If it were mine, I would push the piston down and through the crankcase after using liberal Marvel Mystery Oil or transmission oil soaking it overnight.Okay all, It's just as expected. Tore down the Lawnboy 7268 and found the piston stuck in the cylinder. When it locked up, I forced the blade and broke the connector rod to the piston. What are my chances in getting the piston out without harming the walls and replacing the piston and having it run good again. I tried to pull the piston out by the rod but its pretty stuck. What do you think about hammering a dowel rod thru the spark plug hole? Here is a pic of my findings. Please respond with ideas! Thanks and this forum is GREAT!
