Briggs and Stratton was a bust.It was just a shipping warehouse full of unhappy employees.Found some interesting crank rods Youtube.https://youtube.com/shorts/YFw3MbzI9Ow
Lived it.I have been in many situations where what looked good on paper to an engineer did not work in real life.Never trust an engineer who does not have grease under their fingernails."The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" is a great book that I highly recommend.
I suspect that the Tom Sawyer reference wasn't about *mechanical* engineering, but...Lived it.I have been in many situations where what looked good on paper to an engineer did not work in real life.Never trust an engineer who does not have grease under their fingernails.
I read book way back in the day long before we had remote control tv and the internet.It was so long ago it wwould probably be new again.lols.Sorry, it was maybe a little bit of a cheap shot, I was just trying to be funny. It seems lately that humor will be going the way of the Dodo.
In my mind I was seeing a wily older engineer and a younger enthusiastic guy, and how that might play out.
Sadly, everyone I know is wise to these tricks and I have to pay the lawnmower repairman to fix my mower if I'm too lazy to do it myself.
Although changing a spark plug might be a small price to pay for the wisdom I might impart.
I was just checking some out.They are so heavy they should not be on a semi lols.Ally Wilke, last refrigeration unit i worked on and prety stsndard are the kubota 4 cylinder diesels. And they are tanks. Cast iron everything.
Now thdte is a small 2 and 3 cylinder kubota used in the apu of a semi that runs an alternator, a/c compressor and runs its coolant through the semi engine block to keep it warm. Also gives you cabin heat. But they are no more than 40hp and also all iron and heavy.
