Is the old Screaming Briggs starter clutch worn or just dry
Is the old Screaming Briggs starter clutch worn or just dry from the lack of a few drops of oil? IÃ¢ÂÂm sure the scream is from the starter engaging. I am not connecting with why when all looks clean, free and no wear. Naturally I have seen some that had excessive wear in the bearings area and needed replacing. From what I remember, they d/n scream vs slipping while cranking.
My neighbor had a screamer that she was ashamed to use vs telling me about it. In the pre 90s I remembered it being a quick fix. I felt seeing the starter inside I would remember But No Luck! Finally I saw the small hole that I felt was for oil. A few drops of machine oil allowed them to cut their yard w/o almost a scream. loger
