Wanted to start a thread on funny mistakes we have all made repairing our equipment.
I didnt do this but a friend admitted he and his son made a funny mistake. He was tilling his garden when the tillers motor started acting up. He noticed the carb was loose and the gasket was damaged. His older son said “ no problem pop Ill make you a new gasket.” He replaced the gasket and they processed to try and start it for over an hour. My friend disgusted and nursing a growing blister on his hand quit and said tomorrow is another day. The next morning his son said “ hey pop I know what’s wrong with the tiller” when the son made the gasket he only made holes for the bolts and never cut out the center hole. After fixing the sons mistake the tiller fired right up!
Sometimes adult beverages and repairs dont mix well!
