I will have to get the thing out for the spring. I am hoping to get one more season out of it before a refresh. I love the cut quality of the mower as well as the size of the cut so I am hoping to make this thing last as long as I can get parts. It is as old as me!
usually rehoning the cylinder and new rings and they will run like new again. my 1232 has a briggs ic on it and i think the 832s had the ics to. they usually are the easiest engines to rebuild because of the cast iron bore
