I found these 2 PDF’s on the internet while searching for more information on my 18 HP B&S motor. The first document is an Illustrated parts list for Briggs & Stratton Model Series 422700 Type numbers 1105 – 4822. The second document will show you how to read the model number / VIN number of your Briggs & Stratton motor so you will know which motor will directly replace your motor. Its easier to find an engine that will fit than it is to find the exact same model engine if you need to change the engine for any reason.
Well here is the result of all my hard work so far, it’s not finished yet but definitely getting there. I can’t believe the difference in this mower, this thing has gone from a curb side piece of crap to a pretty nice mower that I plan to keep around for a few years. I know I am certainly happy with it so far, time to mow the lawn.
I finally got the frame painted in the same paint I used on the deck. I had a buddy help me sand the frame while he was over hanging about which really helped speed up the process. After the frame was painted and finished drying I decided to get some new power wires ran for the motor and ignition system. I added a new ground and cleaned up the old wiring to keep things neat and easy to work on.
While refinishing the deck (covered in a previous post) I noticed the mandrels where ruined at the blade attachment. The star shaped key was rounded off beyond repair so I had no choice but to replace the mandrel completely which I had no problem with. These are the parts that hold on your blades and keep them away from you, I would hate for one to break loose and who knows what kind of damage it could cause. Another nice benefit of the new mandrels is brand new bearing which will keep the blades spinning with minimal resistance. I received
This latest update brings a few new goodies including 2 ATI Sapphire Vapor-X 5770’s, a Logitech Harmony remote and Revision 2 of Artic Cooling’s ever so popular Freezer Pro. The first thing to notice is how the revision 2 Freezer Pro has a new mounting bracket for AMD processors and the orientation of the cooler has changed as well. This slightly throws off my cooling design for the media pc case but until I get my AM3 board nothing is set in stone any way. I cant say I care much for the new mounting design, it seems more stable
After my last update you know I have been having issues with my TV tuner card and after putting up with it for a while I couldn’t take it any longer. I decided enough was enough and it was time to purchase a new TV tuner. Newegg also had some Corsair memory on sale for $75.00 for PC2 8500, yes I said 8500 and I have been wanted to consolidate my 4 1GB sticks into 2 2GB sticks just in case this 64bit Windows 7 works out and I have the option to add a few more GB’s. Newegg also was
Since I reinstalled Windows 7 I have been experiencing heat issues which is no surprise to me since I have noticed them on everything I have installed Windows 7 on. I honestly think at this point the reason Windows 7 runs faster is because somehow they rewrote the code to tax your system harder. I noticed right away on laptops while watching any type of video the laptop would kick the fans on full blast and they would stay on. The poor little ECS on board video chip was running so hot I couldn’t even touch it with my finger
With the current random shutdown issues I was able to rule out just about everything by swapping out parts with my gaming PC except the power supply. I started thinking maybe because of the new quad core processor and hard drive my power supply might not be up to snuff so I decided to grab a new one. I didn’t want to take any chances so I decided to get a name brand power supply this time around and had a few brands in mind. I headed out to my local Micro Center and ended up getting a smokin deal
I decided after I found out the hard drive was causing some issues I would update it with a new WD Black Edition 1TB drive but why stop there? I also purchased a new AMD Athlon X4 Phemon, unfortunatly since this is only an AM2 / AM2+ board AM3 Athlons were out of the question. Why would one want an AM3 Phenom over an AM2+ phenom? Well for starters you get more bang for your buck, second they are generally 95 watt vs. 125 watt which is a big plus in a pc that should be running Cool & Quiet
