HOW TO TUNE UP Craftsman Lawn Tractor 12 HP Briggs & Stratton Engine




What do you think about this video?

Herb Stimple: Wow, that sure cleaned up nice!  Wish you'd make a video on how you clean em.

Edward Mazzei: Ha HA At 4 min and 2 sec in this guy goes all ADD/ADHD George Bush on us!

hssenior: This is 1991 craftsman my dad had one identical to this one

holdengr: Hey Dony,

Is there any way to cross reference out Canadian craftsman model numbers to the US ones in order to get parts? I have a model  944.603304. Cant find a source for parts for it.

Curtis Smith: Just wondering if you still have this mower, if so would you share some pictures or video of the mower deck I am having adjustment problems with mine. The front seems to sag more than I believe it should. 38" 12hp model number 917.254520 (ayp) craftsman 2 thanks in advance. 

The Cornish Dairy Boys: after filling up the oil before checking the level u should have run it so it pumps it around the system 

Stephen Festus: I highly recommend on the flat head Briggs lawn tractor engines to install a fuel line shut off. The fuel float valve in the carb tends to stick open, and will cause fuel to leak into the crank case through the oil breather which can ruin the engine. Also I use the fuel shut off to let the engine run dry before storage which helps to reduce the problem of E 85 ethanol fuel sitting in the carb. Good videos Donyboy73. Keep up the good work.

bobby59696: how to change the drive belt on a mower like this one

GunMaster: is there any part of the motor that dont can be washed? the electric or something at the motor?? the spark or anything else?

john beardsley: hey,just did your tuneup on my 21 year old 12 1/2 hp briggs and it has never run so well. thank you, john

Michael Boykin: I dunno about that. I'm currently using a neighbor's Craftsman 21" to do lawns while my Toro and Quick are down for maintenance. It hasn't failed yet and the cut quality is great.

donyboy73: yes mostly for those without a paper filter

Anthony Browning: Should one oik treat the prefilter? Or is that for the mowers without paper filter elements?

Westley Bates: its making a knocking sound....not good ...derp

donyboy73: i think the ones in the video come from blackmambagloves do c

Sean Stayte: Love your golves man. Where did you get them?

donyboy73: early 90' I think

Xxdirt2snowxX: what year? I have the same one I just need the year

Brian Davies: A tune up involves setting the governor, how about showing how that's done?

sleepybird09: I like the red trim on that seat.
