    How do I find answers?

    Asked Sep 12, 2009, 02:52 PM 3 Answers

    Gentle Readers,
    How do I answer all these question? Well, maybe over thirty-five years of doing it face-to-face, over the phone or online might do that. I would be called "old school" since many of the brands I learned to work on had illutrated parts lists as the learning aid.
    For engines I go to the sources:
    Operator Manuals, Illustrated Parts Lists & Wiring Diagrams - Briggs & Stratton

    Honda Engines

    Kawasaki Engines & Power Products - Home Page

    Kohler Engines: Owners & Service Manuals:
    Manuals & Maintenance

    Not all but answers most
    And for equipment manufacturers I often go to:
    Operator's Manuals for John Deere Equipment

    Honda Power Equipment - Operator's and Owner's Manuals

    PDF Manual Web Archive
    Poulan Pro - Poulan - Weed Eater - McCulloch - User Manuals

    Toro - Lawn Mowers, Zero Turn Mowers, Tractors, Snow Blowers

    For reference purposes I often go to (order of preference):
    Outdoor Power Equipment Information

    Power equipment parts and accessories from Outdoor Distributors

    K&T Parts House Lawn Mower Parts and Chain Saw & Trimmer Parts

    K&T Parts House Lawn Mower Parts and Chain Saw & Trimmer Parts for older Murray

    Lawn Mower Parts Cross-Referencing

    Lawn Mower Parts and Lawn Tractor Parts Snapper Cub Cadet MTD and More

    Parts & Accessories | Shop & Find Lawn & Garden, Appliance Parts at Sears PartsDirect |

    Stens - The Parts Company

    Wise Equipment & Rental Inc | Ariens OEM Parts | Briggs & Stratton OEM Parts | Briggs & Stratton Power Products (formerly Generac) OEM Parts | Briggs & Stratton Yard Power (formerly Murray) OEM Parts | Echo OEM Parts | Electrolux / AYP OEM Parts | Gr

    For access to the ARI network of parts lookup:

    Russo Power Equipment - Home

    For belt cross references:
    Main Belts Reference Listing

    Snowmobile Parts, ATV Parts, Go Kart Parts, Mini Bike Part, Lawn Mower Parts, Chainsaw Part and Small Engine Parts

    For some Deere questions:
    Enjoy! More later, and Peace,

    Gentle Readers,
    Some omissions are present since I did not discuss manuals:

    Free lawn and garden product owners manuals, user guides & how-to instructions | ManualsOnline is the Omnibus site and, - Home Improvement Projects, Owner's

    Manuals & Home Management Tools
    will cover Sears and a few others
    But for repair or alternate engine sites

    Honda Engines

    K&T Parts House Lawn Mower Parts and Chain Saw & Trimmer Parts

    Kohler Manuals

    K&T Parts House Lawn Mower Parts and Chain Saw & Trimmer Parts
    And I know of a Tecumseh, cannot find it. Kohler, Kawasaki and Tecumseh allow old manuals to be published. Briggs does not!

    But engine suppliers have info, too. Some manuals, line drawings, specs, etc.

    Small Engines - small engine - Welcome to Small Engine Distributors, The Dealer's First Call Source for Lawn & Garden Supplies. Contact us at or - Our wholesale website is & ht

    Small Engine Suppliers - Your online source for Replacement Small Engines, Tools & Parts

    Small Engine Warehouse - Repower Outdoor Power Equipment

    Tulsa Engine Warehouse webstore new site for
    After all how can they sell it if they do not show it fits!

    And I did leave out JDParts:
    John Deere - Parts Catalog
