I decided to try and fix our lawn mower myself and save some of the $50 that the lawn mower shop wanted and get it done about 2 weeks earlier than the shop could do it. I disassembled, partially, the lawn mower and am now trying to get parts. This savings is costing me 7 wasted trips around town looking for a carberator gasket. I have finally found the store (I think) but I am going to call and make sure they have the parts before I head over there tomorrow.
This venture will probably cost me the same price as what the mower shop would charge because I needed to buy the correct sockets and the new parts and dont forget the wasted trips. Next year I should be saving money. Especially now that I know what kind of store I need to buy my parts in.
Hopefully by this weekend this mower will have a new airfilter, oil filter, oil change and a spark plug.
