Starting 7 Craftsman LT4000 Tractors
Now that it's spring, I've been getting stuff ready for use. I started up
all 7 of our LT4000 tractors, just to make sure everythings OK. I had two
with dead solenoids, and one with a very messed up carb that flooded the
engine with gas and made a messy geyser out of the crankcase breather.
Guess that carbs gonna need a rebuild!
NOTE: For some reason the audio sync on the gets seriuosly messed up after
3:14, worked fine on YouTube for about 10 months, now it does this. Thanks
Craftsman LT 4000 Lawn Tractor with a B&S V Twin Cold Start
A 1990 Craftsman LT 4000 lawn tractor with a V-twin Briggs & Stratton but
the hp is unkown it looks like a replacement. On the tractor it said it had
a 16hp twin. I got the tractor for $200 and it runs great just need some
paint TLC, so if anyone knows what kind of engine is in it please leave a
comment if you can help me out.
Willy Built Lawn Mower Burn Out
The 2012 Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival was out of the question this year as
the mower was not completely tuned in. This is what the competition missed
out on! To learn more about Slick Willy Powersports check us out on the web

Reigning Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Champion Gordon Shedden will be
aiming to keep off the grass when he heads to Silverstone for the final
round of this year's series on 13 October. But he took time out from his
preparations to have a bit of fun, lining up on the grid with three-time
champ and team-mate Matt Neal on a special mower created by their Team
The Mean Mower is a bit different to Gordon and Matt's Honda Yuasa Racing
Civics. It's based on a Honda HF2620 lawn tractor, but the regular 20bhp
614cc V-twin engine has made way for a 1,000cc V-Twin from a Honda
Firestorm motorbike. This delivers 110bhp, and gives a power-to-weight
ratio of 520bhp per tonne -- enabling the mower to do 0-60mph in under four
seconds and hit 130mph.
To cope with this huge pace, the regular mower chassis has been replaced
with a chromoly spaceframe. Suspension and wheels from an ATV help Boost the handling, plus there's a
body-hugging racing seat and Alcantara steering wheel with buttons for the
sequential gearbox. This drives the rear wheels via a chain to a rear axle
sourced from a go-kart. Yet this amazing machine can still cut grass.
The steel cutting bed is replaced by a lighter fibreglass version, and
isn't connected to the petrol engine. Instead, two electric motors spin a
3mm wire cable at 4,000rpm -- proper blades could be a bit dangerous at
100mph. The Mean Mower is similar in concept to a Yuasa Racing Civic, which
is taken off the production line in Swindon, Wilts, and heavily modified.
While the chassis and body are retained, the interior is stripped out and a
roll cage fitted. New front and rear sub-frames are installed, as are
racing-spec suspension and brakes. And while the 2.0-litre engine uses the
same block as the old Civic Type R, a turbocharger is added and most of the internals
are changed. Total output is around 330bhp, which allows the Yuasa Civic to
do up to 160mph.
But how would the BTCC racer compare with the Mean Mower on a lap of
Rockingham's National Circuit in Northants? The track is 1.7 miles long,
has a range of corners and plenty of grass that could do with a trim...
"The only way the mower could win round here is to literally cut corners,"
said Matt. "But if it doesn't, it has no chance. In fact, I reckon I could
give it a 40-second head start and still cross the finish line first."
Was Neal right to be so confident? The way the mower stumbled off the
starting line suggested so. Its tall first gear makes for lazy getaways --
be too aggressive and the engine will stall. But once moving, the Mean
Mower soon gets into its stride. In a straight line, it's quite impressive
-- but the narrow track makes it tricky through corners.
Still, after 40 seconds, the mower had completed over a third of a lap --
leaving the car with plenty of catching up to do. In fact, the Civic didn't
have the mower in its sights until it rounded the penultimate corner. This
was going to be close. As the BTCC racer entered the final hairpin, the
Mean Mower was exiting it and heading down the home straight -- just a few
hundred metres from victory.
But the distance to the finish line proved just enough for the Civic to
close the gap. In the end it pipped the mower at the post, by the narrowest
of margins. We checked the stopwatch: the BTCC car had taken one minute
18.2 seconds to do a standing-start lap. The mower completed it in one
minute 59 seconds -- a difference of 40.8 seconds. We know who won the
moral victory, though, as the Civic can't trim your grass! Little wonder
that these Honda stars are keen to be handed the Mean Mower to cut some
blades of glory in their gardens during the close season.
Valve Adjustment Briggs & Stratton Intek OHV (Craftsman Riding Lawnmower / Lawn Tractor)
Time to tune up the intek engine in my Craftsman lawn tractor, learn how to
adjust the valves to factory specification. This procedure is very similar
in most OHV engines in many popular brands of riding lawnmowers equipped
with a Briggs & Stratton small engine.
I also show you a larger oil filter that may be used on these engines and
it is cheaper than what the OEM recommends. The number for the long filter
is a NAPA 1348 and the short filter is 7035 check out the pricing from your
local auto parts store.
I have a new gasket on order because it is unlikely the old gasket will
reseal without leaking. I will also be changing the spark plug to a NGK V
type to see if the performance is any better, this lawnmower runs like a
top and it is six years old.
I am an independent Amsoil dealer, the synthetic engine oil developed for
small engines has been used in this lawnmower since it was new. The engine
oil has not been changed since last year and it is a dark amber color, it
has not turned black. Amsoil ATM has not contributed to any visible
deposits as you will see in the video, the inside of the valve cover is
shiny metal and there is no varnish build up like you would see from using
regular motor oil. I also run Amsoil in the hydrostatic pump and the final
drive in the transmission.
Thanks for watching and all comments are welcome!
