Tip & How-To about Garden
Does your lawn mower or small engine give a big pop or bang when u shut it off after it has run and heated up for a while? I think this is from the hot exhaust egniting the gas fumes still coming through the engine. This may clean the carbon out of the muffler, but it may shorten the life of the head gasket. Either or it sure does scare bystanders, and wakes up the neighbors. To keep this from happening, just let the engine run at low idle for 30-40 seconds before shutting of the spark. Works for me.
