    What new tools have you got lately?

    I got rid of 2 stroke equipment and went with battery. But my weed eater push mower with 5hp Briggs and straton lasted 12 plus years and still runs, just barely. So I thought oh well need a new one. Now I'm thinking of buying it a new motor( if I can)and start using it again. Lol

    Hard accelerator pedal

    This^ I had a stiff pedal too. And come to find out it was the bend between the carb and firewall. I straighten it out some by adjusting the cable bracket and it's really smooth now. Hope this helps.
