While back my family had to borrow my uncle's pushmower he never uses bc our's gave out. Well, we learned that the mower he gave us was a piece of crap, especially considering it smokes and shakes like crazy anytime you run it. Now that I know more about small engines I got bored today and figured I clean air filter and Carb. I must say I've never seen a carburetor this filthy and idk how that Briggs n Stratton still cranked and ran fine once it cranked. Just shows how sad things look when you don't take care of em properly

What kills me is that people don't understand just how long things will last with just easy routine maintenance!
You got me. I'm more surprised that my Uncle worked in a Honda dealership working on engines they got in for like 7 years, he does great job taking care of his stuff at his house (his kids used to race dirtbikes so he has a nice collection)

Maybe he just didn't worry with it bc he didn't use it anymore lol. He is proud owner of a zero turn, he don't need his push mower lol
Ewww. Nasty. Is that rust or junk? Or is it a combo of both lol
Junk and a whole lot of it. Got some Q-Tips and a wire brush and had at it on that carb. Didn't come spotless but came close. As for the Air filter. . . I'm just going to have to put it in other way bc that thing didn't come very clean. You should see the mower. Rusted and looks like crap lol

A buddy of mine nicknamed it Smokey. Here's the after pics and pic of smokey. Guess I can't just flip air filter around afterall, it only goes in one way.
