Coffee Shop / Belt tensioner idler pulley source
« Last post by Richard DIY Luke on Today at 08:46:35 AM »
I'm a newcomer to mower racing and my interest is growing. I would like to find what company makes the belt tensioner idler pulley setup joshua "Meat" coleman posted pictures of on January 18, 2012 in the Belt/pulley setup thread. I can't find one anywhere. It has the number 4070 stamped on it. I hope someone is still familiar with it.

Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: Replace fuel connector with a barb?
« Last post by makenzie71 on May 25, 2018, 08:36:26 PM »
Replacing the plastic piece was not preferable...I wanted something that would stand up to a little more abuse.  So I brazed some copper to the brass insert.  Kind of disappointed in my work...didn't think it WOULD work, but after it DID work the copper work-hardened and now it won't bend lol.  I'll get a 90* barb and do it better soon.  This at least lets me get the rest of the mower running and setup.

You can replace the plastic fitting. If I remember correct, the inside is actually metal

I picked up these two things a couple days ago to play with.  I got the mtd running almost right away but the plastic ďthingĒ on the fuel connector on the carburetor body broke and speed fuel.  Has anyone drilled and tapped this port out for a hose barb before?  I plan on beating this thing up and a plastic fitting seems like not the greatest idea for fuel delivery.

Also, any basic information about either of these machines would be appreciated.

Iím partial to Kohler as that is what my sponsor builds. 

I donít think you can go wrong with either one as long as it is done right.
