I've got an old lawn mower sitting in my garage that's got a 4HP Briggs & Stratton motor on it. For a winter project with my 16 yo son, I'm thinking of tearing it apart and rebuilding it - as a way to show him the inside of a motor.

That got me to thinking that maybe I should do something with it besides putting it back on the mower.

One idea was to build a portable generator. Go-cart isn't really an option - no where to run it where I am.

Anyone have any other ideas?

Dangerous time when our country is led by those who will lie about anything, backed by those who will believe anything, based on information from media sources that will say anything. Americans must break out of that bubble and seek truth.

Find a pressure washer, generator, or something else on craigslist with a small engine that doesn't run.

Turn that lawnmower into one that works. Then have him push it around the yard till all the grass is shorter. Think of how proud he will be sweating over that mower he brought back to life. Or better still. Have him go out and get some contracts and cut some other people's yards.

You have a great opportunity to teach him some really good financial lesson here.
