Greetings! I have a 5 horse aluminum b&s that my wife picked up for me at a yard sale last year! Holding it would help to get my mini project going. I knew something was up since this motor is like brand new inside and out, she only paid 20.00 for it. When something seems too good to be true, it usually is! Appearantly the machine got bumped or driven into (don't really know what it came off of? ) something. Hit the carb and tank and snapped the corner of the block clean off ! You can take the corner of the block and place it exactly where it goes and it fits perfectly back on. I know pictures are worth a thousand words just can't figure out how to take them out of my gallery and put them into o.m.b. gallery? I have thought about j-b aluminum weld but not sure how well that would hold up with heat and vibration? Any suggestions? Is it even worth trying to save it? Like I said, I think its pretty much a brand new motor, just a freak accident when it was new!
