It might be time for a change...

So Dad's mulcher/mower quit working the other day...didn't take me long to find that the primer bulb you push to prime gas into the carburetor had a crack in it and air leaking in was the culprit. So I ordered one...$3, no big deal. But the catch is, Briggs & Stratton makes a special tool to remove the old primer bulb with. $28.00 By the time tax and shipping is added, it was a $40.00 order. But Dad said it was probably cheaper than the service charge at a repair shop, so I ordered it. Yesterday it came in, so I went out to put it on the mower. And while I was at it, I checked the air cleaner to see if it needed a new one. I'm not sure how many years Dad has had this mower, but evidently it had never been changed. So I replaced that this morning. Now it's just a matter of waiting for springtime again.
