Generally the spark plugs for mowers come pre-gapped. I use to measure but they were spot on, so now I just do eyeball comparison from the old to the new one, just to check.

I have a old yard machine self propelled lawn mower 6.25 HP 21" cut briggs & stration eng. Family YBSXS 1901VC 27446 EPA phase 1. I need the cable that goes from the saftey bar to the gas...

I have found OEM part number 746-0552 on Ebay. This is for older units, say 1997 on. The cable is 49" in length. Here is a link to ALL the MTD brake cables on Ebay.

Yours is the MTD-White Outdoor Push Mower Brake Cable. # 746-0552.
We call this the deadman/brake cable. It allows a small brake pad to rub against the flywheel on the top of the engine while at the same time actuating a switch which shorts out the ignition current to the spark plug. An interesting and much needed device, right! Good luck. Hope this helps.

Need do know the spark plugs gap

If you're replacing the spark plugs in your car engine, you'll need to set the gap before reseating the spark plug. The gap is the distance electricity arcs between the ground electrode and center electrode. The gap must be set correctly to ensure maximum performance. Here's how to set the gap of a spark plug.

  1. Remove the spark plug wires. Use a socket wrench to remove the spark plugs from their chambers.
  2. Clean the spark plug if you are not replacing it with a new one. Remove all dirt and debris from the spark plug.
  3. Check the owner's manual for your car (or any appliance with spark plugs) to find out the recommended gap setting.
  4. Use a gap tool to check the gap of the spark plug. Slip the tool between the ground electrode and center electrode. The gap tool should fit snugly at the recommended gap width indicated on the tool.
  5. Push the tool between the electrodes a few times to ensure proper gap. If the gap is too wide, push the ground electrode firmly against a flat surface to narrow the gap and then check again with the gap tool.
  6. Repeat Step 5 as necessary until you reach the correct gap. Reseat the spark plug and reattach the spark plug wires
Good Luck

I recently got a green Craftsman with yellow writing "Craftsman" and ("22" Mulcher") I didn't know where to look for the model number. I found a family "YBSXS.1901VC" then "274466" it also said not legal...

You need to take the mower into a SEARS authorized store and have them show you the code meanings. Craftsman has changed a lot of their codes so for the first time this is the only way.
