Flywheel puller problems

Craftsman lawn mower

After almost 3 weeks of waiting, the new Briggs and Stratton flywheel puller arrived in the mail and today was the day to put it into action.

I was planning on having pictures of the operation and maybe a short video, but all that went out the window when I realized my mistake in ordering the wrong flywheel puller.

At least I know which one we don't need. Hopefully with a bit more homework I can determine exactly which flywheel puller is needed for this particular Craftsman.

Just to be clear the current condition allows for mowing, it's just a bear to start and isn't quite cutting to its full potential. I feel like a lot of mowers out there reach this point and most operators end up making due and getting used to pulling extra hard to get her started.

What Mark's being too kind to say is that the lawnmower is so hard to start that I've thrown all of the mowing at him. :-) He's got a real incentive to get this mower going well so that I'll start shouldering some of the work again!

I feel your pain. I've ordered the wrong shopvac filter three times now. Fingers cross that this one will be the one!

Thanks for sharing! That should ease Mark's pain a bit...
