    Older Murry snowblower question.,,,

    I have an older Murray snowblower with a 5 hp tecumseh motor on it, It starts and runs pretty good for being 26 years old. Last time I used it it seemed like at top speed it was kinda weak and struggling to throw snow, and move itself through the snow. I went online and bought one of those cheap...

    So, what changes/improvements have you done to your bike lately?.,,

    I've been busy doing somethings I wanted to do, and some I had to do. After looking around for a couple of years, I finally found a set of factory mag wheels to replace my spoke wheels. The spoked wheels are getting a bit worn looking, plus I don't want to get another flat where the bike has to...

    Does anyone do this?.,,

    I changed my wife's oil in her Equinox with a Mobil 1 ext perf cartridge filter. It claims to be good for 20k miles or 1 year of service. The car will eat oil if I don't use my mix of oils that seems to slow down the consumption. I was thinking about changing the oil at 5k per the olm, but...

    Riddle me this.,,

    I was doing a OC on my wifes 2011 Equinox 4 cyl. It calls for 5/30 wt Dexos oil. I thought the jug I bought was the right stuff, but I mistook the nascar logo for the dexos logo and put the oil in. I don't expect anything bad will happen, but wanted to find out what Dexos exactly is and what...

    New to me, first cartridge filter recommendations?

    I'm about to change the oil on my wifes '11 Chevy Equinox. First time so I went on you tube to see where the oil filter is. It seems they use just a replacement element, rather then a spin on can. It doesn't appear to have any type of bypass designed in it. I was gonna use a Napa filter, any...

    Where do you buy your car parts?.,,

    I've tried to buy parts locally. I have a NAPA 2 blocks from my house, but they never have anything I need. They give me the "we can order it for you" line every time. Heck, I can order parts myself and have them delivered to my house tax and shipping free. Even the three other chain places...

    Here's a weird one.,,,,

    Yesterday I went out in the garage to grab my gas can to get filled in case I need it for my snow blower. I usually put a splash of carb cleaner and MMO in the can to treat the gas ahead of time. When I picked up the MMO, the bottle fractured into plastic shards in my hand. I didn't even try to...

    Craftsman weed wacker question.,,

    I have a weed wacker that's 3 years old. It has been easy to start, but stutters and wants to stall when you give it gas. There's no mixture screws on the carb, just epoxied holes where the screws should be. I would think if it's gummed up it would be hard to start, and wouldn't want to idle...

    Mower puking oil.,,

    I picked a newer looking Craftsman mower off the curb yesterday. It spins and I was able to get it to run after pulling and cleaning up the plug. The only thing I can see wrong is the po must have put a whole qt of oil in it, because when it runs it starts blowing oil out the large tube that...

    The one on my job has 2560 hours on it, and no one has changed the oil in it since I've been there. It starts easy and runs 7-8 hours a day.I checked the oil and it's black so it needs a change. I might do it just because I can't stand to see it neglected.,,
