Experiment (Performance upgrades)

Feb
27

There are no performance upgrades for the Briggs 3.5hp and 4hp vertical engines. All the performance upgrades for Briggs revolves around the 5hp horizontal engine for some sort of sanctioned sport and the engine is called the Animal. Unfortunately none of the aftermarket parts interchange with the 3.5hp and 4hp Briggs engine found on our Sensation Mowers. I have decided to experiment in house with performance upgrades. Only here will you find such endeavor. Click to read...

Shop update...

Feb

Finally got the tubing bent for the handles. Now just have to assemble them. Have a backlog of members' motors to be done. Still trying to pop out themed projects for the site. I'm building an engine with a window in it so I can weld up different camshafts to the cam gear to experiment with performance upgrades. This window will allow me to weld the cam in perfect alignment and to visualize the inside of the engine while running.

Expanded Services

Feb

Check out the services page if you are planning on having your motor redone. I fine tuned the capabilities and pricing to give more options and to better reflect what people are asking for and I find myself doing in the shop. If your motor is with me now the agreed price still stands. Once again I make MINIMAL money off this and this service if offered to members to keep their mowers up and running. The parts and labor is at cost. Each motor is given FULL individual attention.

Prototype Handle

Aug
25

After many false leads to secure fixed landscaping style handles. I decided to tool up here at Sensation-Mowers.com to make them from scratch for my restoration and the members. Here's the first one off the line with many more to come.. After my resto-mods are complete they will be available to members for a reasonable fee. I'll take orders now. I'm currently figuring with material and labor they will be around 100 dollars.
