    I need a small engine mechanic

    I'm done ****ing with this thing. I've replaced the battery, the solenoid and as of today the starter and I can't get it to crank. I don't have the ability to pull start it even if it did have a pull rope and don't have anything I can use to turn it over quick enough to see if it'll run as is. So I need a mechanic who is would be willing to take a look at it for me. Preferably north of Indy, I'll drop it off and pick it up and I'll pay for the repair of course. I hate small engines and they hate me. If it won't run I'll push it into the woods and let it rot.

    There's lots of ________ on here who don't fit your particular stereotype, smearing us with goofball sophistry is what is out of line. It just makes gunowners look like *******s.

    Does the starter engage when you try it.

    What engages the blades? And are the blades engaged? Where are the safety interlocks on that mower, I cant see on my phone.

    No, I can't get anything to click, buzz, belch or fart on it.

    Blades are not engaged. There is a lever you move over to engage a pulley which starts the blades moving. It's off.

    Do you have full battery voltage on one side of the starter solenoid?
    When you turn the key do you get full battery voltage on the small wire on the starter solenoid? If not follow the wiring back with a meter or test light.


    Get a meter, and follow the safety circuit..

    I came here top make a similar joke. I'm glad I don't have to.
    Medium speed. Moderate drag.

    I'd come over and take a look if I could...but it's a bit far for me.

    The first thing I would personally do if I were there and verified the battery was good was use jumper cables to jump the starter. If it works, it's somewhere upstream in the switch...but since I'm not there, I can't say where I would go from there.

    PM inbound. I have a neighbor who specializes in small engines and is highly recommended.
    We are in Westfield so that is not too far for you.
