  • Do not use autogenerated subs on this one. At 27.40 it goes like "I'm fu*ed over Rika". I misses a lot in this episode. Love this chanel anyway. Mustie1, you are the boss!

  • Id like to see you silver solder a brass elbow to save a carb some time. That would blow a few minds. :)

  • solder a extension to the brass for the fuel hose and I am concerned if the muffler hang out unsprung weight could warp the head

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

  • Man those giant vac are killer! Used to run one just like that ...... about every golf course in Pinehurst had a couple of these back in the late 80's and 90's. I could get more done with one of those than 3 or 4 guys w/ backpack blowers

  • 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 like that you can chuckle when it seems like the parts are giving you a hard time. That little o-ring in the carburetor did not want to seat. I don't yet have that ability. People listening to me work on something might think that I HATE it rather than enjoy it.

  • 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!

  • Great new shop! I just repaired a wood chipper that had the same issue in idling. The suspected cause was rust built up in the chipper wheel (especially since it gave a nice cloud of brown dust when I first got it running). After giving it some time with a wire wheel and some lithium grease it idles just fine now. So I'm thinking the fan assembly had a similar issue and it just knocked enough of the corrosion out to let it idle without too much resistance.

    • @Mustie1 A long as you keep posting videos, I dont care what shop your in. But that was a smart move for security reasons... Or might have been IDK. Was someone stealing from you? The fewer people who know where you live, probably the better off you are... Was this a response to a theif situation or something?

      Nick NelsonNick Nelson19 gün önce
    • @Mustie1 Im just giving you a hard time. We'll get used to it. It was kind of a shock tho.... All the sudden your moved into a new shop, and everyones like "WHAT?!" You screwed up the whole image.... We got used to seeing the same environment.... And then you changed up the whole program... Anyways, whatever keep up the good work!

I know you probably had to do something different, just miss the old platform.
