    Good video. I bought a used flywheel on eBay that some knucklehead had taken off with a hammer and a pry bar and ruined it. I would have bit his head off, but I only have 4 teeth.

    Taryl, can you replace a flywheel on a john deere 826 snow king engine? My JD dealer say no.

    Is there a music video for the background hillbilly jam?

    What advice can you give me on choosing alternative carburetors to run a twin carburettor setup on the Briggs 20HP opposed twin engine. My engine has had engine porting and i would like to increase the intake airflow over the restrictive standard carburettor.

    You’ll also want to clean the alternator/stator magnets after you clean the mating surface and make sure no magnets are damaged or loose wile you’re at it.

  10. Ezra Ducat on December 22, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    They should just use screws in the first place

    If you’re replacing a plastic ring gear on a Briggs Intek V-twin there’s a real likelihood that you’ll break the thing getting it on. While contemplating why Briggs ignored the decades-long practice of machining a reliable flywheel/ring gear out of steel, do this with your Intek gear job:
    1. With a wire wheel in a mini grinder, clean the place where the gear sits until it shines.
    2. With a sanding disk in the grinder, chamfer the edge the gear must fit over.
    3. Using a dead-blow hammer, start to CAREFULLY tap the gear into place on one edge while making sure it is aligned over the holes on the flywheel. Install one of the attaching screws to ensure correct alignment.
    4. With a heat gun, warm the gear while slowly tapping it into place until it is fully seated.
    Naturally, you can use hand tools (wire brush, file, emery cloth) in lieu of a grinder. And maybe your gear will slip off and on. But mine didn’t, and safely getting it on required all the above steps, during which I had a better idea of why Briggs filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July 2020.

    Pry bar and hammer is the way we’ve always done it. Is it the space shuttle and we’re going to the moon. The best.

    could you press those out or would be a pain

  23. Real Gagne on December 22, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    Taryl, I’m a long time subscriber. I know I set the governor the right way when I rebuilt the engine, but now I’m trying to figure out what the difference is between a governor noise and a surging carburetor. They seem to do the same thing. CAN that governor arm going to the slinger be replace? I need HELP

  24. Paulman50 on December 22, 2020 at 10:19 pm

    In NZ that kit would cost $150

  34. ralph edman on December 22, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    So…….a plastic ring gear requires a plastic starter gear and a metal ring gear requires a metal starter gear?

  35. farmer jackson on December 22, 2020 at 10:27 pm

  38. Porter Mr Bass on December 22, 2020 at 10:29 pm

    Hello thanks for the flywheel removal info. I have a 14 h p vanguard motor with a big nut on top of the flywheel. What size socket do they mostly take?

  39. Mad Moose Fitness on December 22, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    Taryl is da man!

  40. KEITH KUHN on December 22, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    Great stuff plus I really love the cat I’m a cat person to

  41. Aoife Lucas on December 22, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    Thank you some much for these videos. I have successfully removed the ring gear and have the kit on order to replace. I really appreciate your humor as well, you make it fun and informative. I didn’t have the correct disc for my "whizzer-wheel", which is totally what I am calling it from now on, but I found a good flat head or chisel and a hammer knocked the ends off cleanly as well.

  42. WildeFox on December 22, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    Great episode as always Taryl, hilarious when the snowblower fell out of the car!

    Gitter done Taryl!!! Can you please show us sometime how to restring a Pull Start Handle Rotary #25-11330. It has a center part that comes out and I think your supposed to run string through it as well and then tie a knot, but then it wont go back in. Thank you
