  • The idle problem was air related. It needed the drag of the air cleaner to draw fuel at low rpm.

  • I'm reaching out to this community for help. I've got a craftsman walk behind mower, 6.5hp. Starts right up, but after I empty the bag, it won't start again will the engine cools. It has an auto choke, but that dosnt appear to be the problem. The butterfly is closed when cold and full open when hot. What could be the issue? Thanks!

  • I understand why people miss the old garage, its because it had a homely feeling. So i would reccomend you cover the walls and such with homely stuff to make it feel more "bangs chest" tim the toolman allen.

  • Loving the new shop. Nice amount of space. I was working out of a garage very similar to your old one for about 7 years. Built my new shop about a year ago, about double the space. I still don’t have it completely set up and I’m already considering closing in the RV port I had built on the side for additional space. Never too much shop space, right?

  • I don't think this could ever happen, but I think it would be awesome if you and Oliver from the TRvision channel Oliver Motorized could do some sort of build video together. You both have the same sense of humor, share a love for motorized bicycles and other motorized vehiculars. I think being from different generations could bring different ideas to the table and what you two could come up with would be pretty awesome. I'm pretty sure you don't live anywhere near each other, hence why it would likely never happen. Just wanted to put it out there though :)

I still like the old garage tho, has that intimate atmosphere, but it was a little crowded, lol. I really enjoy all your vids. Thanks for those!
