For those of you in the local area who are about to throw away your gasoline equipment either because the engine will not start or starts but stalls, here is a chance for you to save your equipment without spending a great deal of money. Most likely the engine in your equipment just needed some cleaning and minor repair to the carburetor or ignition system and your equipment will be up and running. After all, most of you have not really done any harm to your equipment by using it with caution. Nonetheless, despite how well you take care of your equipment, it will eventually fail due to lack of the appropriate engine maintenance and servicing. Since most of you are busy, you don't really have the time to do so. Most engine failures come from clotted carburetor jets, stuck fuel bowl needle or fouled spark plug. However there may be some that have shorted or opened ignition cable, worn coil, and/or worn carburetor linkage and adjustments. There may be other causes yet that needed to be checked out, like a worn piston ring. It really don't take much to put your equipment out of service.
Here is your chance to restore the use of your equipment without spending a fortune in taking it to an expensive shop with all of its overheads. I will provide the primary service (clean the carburetion and ignition systems) to restore the engine operation in your equipment VALUED AT $60 FOR THE SUM OF $30 (CASH ONLY plus local sales tax) if you take the trouble of making a local drop-off and a follow up pick-up. For service request or to determine serviceability of the equipment, email Ken at email@example.com or call (908)396-6196 FOR APPOINTMENTS. Please specify the equipment, engine size/type and the nature of the problem. In addition, provide a contact number, your full name and location (name of the town that you will be coming from). The service location is in Bridgewater, NJ.
If the engine in your equipment has any of the following conditions, it will NOT be considered serviceable associated with this discount offering:
Does not turn over freely (May be repairable. Ask.)
Significant oil leak (May be repairable. Ask.)
Damaged mechanical components or physical enclosures
Missing functional parts
A $20 CASH DEPOSIT IS REQUIRED AT DROP-OFF. IT IS APPLIED TOWARD THE COST OF SUCCESSFUL REPAIR. IF THE EQUIPMENT IS FOUND DEFECTIVE AND NOT REPAIRABLE, IT WILL SERVE AS HANDLING FEE.
When your engine is restored back to normal operation, you will be notified for pick-up. If there is a need for new parts, such as carburetor rebuilt kit, air filter, spark plug and/or ignition coil, I will inform you before completing the service. The cost of new parts will be added to the balance payment at pick-up. Please allow sufficient time for the procurement of these parts. A cash payment is required during pick-up to cover the balance.
If an initial assessment determines that there are other problems within the equipment that prevent the engine from running and no service has been performed, you will be notified and your drop-off deposit will be refunded to you when you pick up within a week of notification. If you choose not to pick up your equipment within a week of such notification, there will be no refund on your drop-off deposit and your equipment is considered abandoned by you. It will be disposed of by any means deemed appropriate.
If for some reasons after servicing the spark and carburetion systems, your equipment engine is subsequently found to have difficulty starting or running due to hidden other problems (e.g. faulty starter, crankshaft doesn't actually turn freely, intermittent ignition coil, imbedded physical damage that affected timing, etc) that are beyond the scope of repair of this engine service, the full cost of this basic service will be passed on to you. If these problems can be repaired by this engine service, the cost of such repairs will be added on to the basic service cost (See below). You will be notified of these problems prior to any attempts of additional repair.
Storage fee of $10 per week applies when the requested pick-up is not made within a week after successful engine restoration. Storage fee will be added to the pick-up payment. If the requested pick-up is not made within the month, your equipment is considered abandoned and it will be disposed by any means deemed appropriate.
ADDITIONAL SERVICE FEES MAY APPLY:
Any work beyond the basic carburetion and spark ignition cleaning to restore engine operation to normal requires additional fees. Examples of work that requires additional fees are:
Magnetron timing adjustment or replacement
Combustion chamber repair
External governor linkage adjustment/repair
Engine cut off linkage adjustment/repair
Engine fuel/air mixture tune up
Necessary use of test gasoline
TRANSPORT SERVICE (pick up and drop off on driveways only):
If you have no means of bringing your gas equipment, you may request for transport service which consist of 2 trips, pick-up and subseqent drop-off. This transport service will be restricted to no more than 50 mile distance from my base location. A separate cost for transport is payable upfront and consist of $15 handling plus $1 per loaded mile (rounded up to the nearest mile) PER TRIP PLUS TOLLS. Preferably traveling cost is to be deposited in advance via Paypal and is NON-REFUNDABLE. If you do not use Paypal, other special arrangements may be made.
Note that transport service will NOT be available in the Winter season.
OUTDOOR POWER EQUIPMENT RESTRICTIONS APPLY:
Commercial equipment are welcomed. However, no equipment larger than a typical tractor or riding mower will be accepted in general.
Engine problems that are not serviceable: lost compression, distorted crankshaft, damaged moving parts, damaged enclosure.
Single cylinder small engines (e.g. Tecumseh, Briggs and Stratton, Kohler, Kawasaki, others). For engines with 2 or more cylinders, please let me know in advance on type and nature of problem.
SPECIAL NOTE ON 2 CYCLE ENGINES:
The successful operation of 2 cycle engines really depends on the integrity of the crankcase enclosure seals in addition to the proper air mixture carburetion, good compression and adequate ignition in the piston chamber since mixed fuel flows through the crankcase first before going into the piston chamber. Often time, excessive wear occurs with the crankcase seal due to long duration high speed usage or insufficient amount of oil used in the fuel mix. Such seal wear is not detectable and will disturb the mixed fuel flow to combustion chamber causing difficulty in engine start up. This difficulty exists even when there is visible sign of good spark and measured good compression. In such case, the carburetor may be cleaned and yet the engine is impossible to start. For such reason the cost of carburetor refurbishment work will apply regardless whether the engine start up as a result or not.
