    We all have to die some way. How bout natural causes? A heart attack? Pop a blood vessel? Died from being too PC? I've said some off-color stuff in my life, but I never would have thought the above could be one of them. Maybe I'm clueless - that's plausible.

    You're probably fortunate to not have had Cancer strip someone you love dearly from your life. Cancer sucks, no bones about it. Too many folks here have lost loved ones to it. The plague, well I'm pretty sure that might be a bit more palatable for most... lol

    I have an old shitty turbo you can use if you want to have some fun before you grenade the motor. Comes with enough shaft play to ensure pieces of the impeller will be consumed by the motor!

    No, no. Go back & read through the thread. I don't wanna grenade it. It's gotta go naturally. I owe it that much...

    Could be worse. It's looking like I might be stuck riding this same motorcycle for the rest of my life, for the same reason, and never get the chance to buy a new one.

    Re: I Can't Kill It!

    Last summer my old craftsmen pushmower ran dry on oil. I think it had started to burn oil, because I had checked the level recently enough so I don't know where it all went. One day I was pushing it, heard a funny sound that I thought was the sloppy wheel banging around against the body. But it grew louder and I shut it off. Opened the oil fill hole and smoke came out. Put some left over 10w-30 in it and it fired right back up making the right sound again. The exhaust has a hint of two-stroke to it now, but that might be because it calls for SAE30 not 10W-30. And the ring gap probably just got a tad wider. I think the 10W-30 might be a bit thinner for mower operating temps. Going to see if I can find some SAE40 for it before I decide to buy some rings.

    I don't think I want to buy a new one. I'm afraid it'll suck. This old tank has been great.

    Re: I Can't Kill It!

    Didn't read through all the pages so not sure if it's been suggested yet. Do a full tune-up (plug, air and fuel filters) and an oil change. The cylinder will finally get a full charge of air and fuel, plus fresh spark to ignite it. Hopefully the Same as happens with high mileage auto trans that have never had a fluid change, gets fresh fluid, the pressure goes back to near where it should be and whatever is ready to fail usually does in a short amount of time!!!!

    Re: I Can't Kill It!

    This thread is amazing lol

    Same as my Briggs & Stratton push mower... I have mowed down trees, rocks, whatever happens to be in on or around my yard, never take care of it, leave it out for the entire winter and it fires right up come springtime. I don't real have anything against her, I've just been lazy, and at this point it'll probably die if I actually tune it up..

    Re: I Can't Kill It!

    My craftsman has been outside since I got it in 2009. No oil changes, no sta-bil, though I did replace the sparkplug once but only because it physically broke. It starts with no significant intervention every year.

    I never had good luck with that, first the blade gets dull, you sharpen it a few times, then the blade gets bent, you hammer is somewhat straight, the blade is out of balance, you start the engine, it wobbles so much you can hardly hang on, then eventually, you shear the key in the crank shaft and it won't even start

    I mostly just have moss & weeds growing, now I do with a $50 B&D corded electric weed whacker

    Holy shit this thread is still goin as well as the mower..... Wow I don't even remember typing my post back in 2010. My mower body is dying, but the engine, first pull just like yours. Been outside since 2010 --- 13 years old, now. No oil changes or added, no filter changing or cleaning and no stabil. It did sputter a bit until the fresh gas got into it.

    Soooooo...

    Just put that fuckin' thing away this past weekend. Sat outside without any cover from May until now. Yup, never missed a beat this year. Wouldn't even get stolen. Until next year, my trusty adversary...until next year...
