    Wanted Briggs @Stratten 3.5 motor

    Hi Guys, the motor on my garden chipper has spat the dummy and the conrod. So looking for a replacement 3.5/4hp engine from an old motor mower so I can get my garden Gorilla up and running again. Preferably a round AKL so I can pick it up. This is what it looks like.

    The mower shop on Te Atatu Peninsula was always my first port of call when I was a Jafa, very helpful old bloke. Otherwise the guy on the hibiscus coast who calls himself the mower doctor or something along those lines.
    More meplat, more better.

    Is this somthing you have built, give us some more pics so I can figure out how it works, I have wondered about one of these but they pretty pricey to buy, if I can fab one up from an old lawn mower and a fly wheel might be an option.
    Cheers

    Now that mate is the famous Garden Gorilla that was posted in the Shed mag, and yes she`s home brewed. My son gave me the motor so I figured out how to build a chipper around it by using a car fly wheel, two car spring bits as the top blades. Ill post a thread in home builds on it for you and others of how it works.
