keith baran: Hey man Thanks, I just changed the oil in my mower, ran it for about 10 min , came out today and it was froze, went out to buy a new one, couldn't find one, searched the web as a last ditch effort and saw this!! You just saved me 400 bucks, you rock!!

poochie49: Hi,I am a retired gentleman. I am using my free time to learn about small engines. I recently got an older ย Briggs engine just to play with. I have viewed many You Tube videos but I really like yours. Very clear information. The engine I have came from a Craftsman 6.0 "Easy Starting Quiet". I am trying to see if I can get it going. The major issue I have is that it is very difficult to pull the starter rope even with the spark plug removed. Like I mean REAL difficult.ย I see the piston move up and down (I removed the cylinder head cover).Now before I go any further I'm wondering if the main bearing could be seized. How can I confirm that the main bearing on the crankshaft is bad?ย  Thanks , Tom

rkinbilly: using this method i sprayed pb blaster into the spark plug hole on my mtd/briggs and stratton chipper. i had to work my chipper blade back and forth a bit but eventually i got it spinning in the right direction. i then pulled the rope twice and the motor spins but it didn't start because i had no starter fluid. but it seemed to lock up again. i sprayed more penetrating oil in it, worked it loose, pulled the rope two or three times but it locked up again. i see no oil coming out of the spark plug hole when i do this. do you have any ideas donyboy73?

Michael Ives: thank you that exactly what happened to mine i followed your instructions and just mowed my lawn :) thank you

Jacob Cana: this video saved my lawn mowers life. crying emoji

SANG THONG: Went to Walmart bought new spark plug , drain all oil and change new sae 30 oil . Will test today if it start . The old spark plug was wet to much oiled on it won't start

Marty Stevens: On every video, point out the year of an engine on the engine cover.

Howard Schrier: Thanks very much Dony. Worked like a charm. Saved me time/money in the repair shop. Much appreciated!

MotoDudeScorch: I would definitely wrap some electrical tape around that plug wire before stroking all the oil out. Don't ask how I know.

Lynsdesires: You sure saved a couple of senior citizens a very costly trip to the small engine shop. This trick worked great on a Craftsman 6.5 hp mower we accidentally poured too much oil into.

William Isen: I consider u a Legend. Tiop of the line There should be a You tube hall of Fame. I would place my vote for u donyboy 73. What is your real name??

William Isen: Yes you have remained thorough in your videos but yet u make it where us diyers can understand. Thanks Dony boy 73. And thanks 4 u tube. For allowing us to be able to see his videos

Pepe Aguilar: Will this procedure work on a honda generator ?

corronapapi: Hey man i just wanna say YOU ARE THA MAN! Your video accurately helped me fix my mower, Big shout out to you bro! Thanks and much love man. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ

knighthawk86855: I tuned up a mower for a neighbor, they used it for a week and brought it back complaining that my work was shotty, so I took it back and found out from the woman, that they store it like you showed in the video, it did the same thing the one here did, I told the lady it wasn't my work that was at fault, it was the way she was storing it, and she should store it level, she did, and thanked me, and she brings her mower and her families mowers back to me for seasonal tune-ups now.

Lunker012: The engine does not hold much oil in it (ounces not gallons). You lost some oil before this video as evidenced by the oil on the deck. You puked out more oil with the plug out. More oil came out of the muffler and you burned out some when it started and ran for 15 minutes. YOU NEVER CHECKED THE OIL LEVEL IN THE ENGINE BEFORE AND AFTER STARTING IT. You may have gotten the condition corrected but blew the engine anyway. I like your videos but you forgot a big step for youtubers that do not know what they are doing and caused this condition originally. Keep the videos coming.

aaron leaf: I did this it started up. Put more gas in and wont start back up.

JASWINDER SINGH: Thanks for very knowledgeable video >I have same lawn mower and i cant press the on the handle to start it its stuck any idea how can i unstuck or fix it please.
