I got another engine, well.. attached to an edger. I got a 3hp gas edger with a briggs engine on it. It had been sitting for about 2 years and was bought for 30 dollars in non running condition. I took it home, and filled the carb with cleaner a few times and got it running. Let it sit running for about 45 minutes and that cleaned the carb, now it starts right up and runs great. Score.

One question, the pulley that is on the crank is plastic or something like that and the key has come out and gotten lost so it will not engage the blade. Where can I get this keys replacement and what do I need to ask for?

Thanks

Justin

Re: briggs pulley.

Pretty easy to get another pulley: just measure the circumference, how wide the shaft is, how wide the keyway ( the slot in the crank) and order one to that spec. For example, let's say the pulley is 3" with a 5/8" shaft and 3/16th keyway. What you would look for is ID: Interior diameter ( the hole in the midle) OD: Outer diameter ( the width of the entire pulley) and the keyway- measure the width of the gap where the key goes. good luck.
