Small Engine Repair Workshop for Small Farmers

Lincoln University Cooperative Extension's Innovative Small Farmers Outreach Program is offering a workshop on small engine repair.

Date: Saturday, October 29, 2011
Time: 12:30 p.m.-5:00 p.m.
Location:  Beacon of Hope Church Farm, 1315 East Walnut Street (Hwy 58), Raymore, Missouri 64083

Do you ever feel at the mercy of your machinery? Did you ever wish you could do your own repairs and maybe save a few dollars?  We would like to help empower you to understand the basic mechanics of your machinery and the maintenance you can do to keep your equipment healthy and running smooth.

Time will be split between "classroom" learning and hands-on.

Some topics we will cover:
-Basic maintenance
-Lubricants for engines
-Lubrication of machine chassis

You will learn the difference between equipment that has a 'bowl' type carburetor and why that setup is generally more reliable than equipment with a 'diaphragm' carburetor.

Please feel free to bring your small equipment. Different brands have different needs and we can demonstrate that with the various equipment that is brought.

If anyone has a 2-stroke engine, weed eater or anything that will start and only idle but will not rev-up, especially please bring that, along with some fresh fuel mix.

This workshop is FREE, but be sure to register to ensure your seat. Limited to 30 people.

To register or to get additional information, contact Katie Nixon at (816) 809-5074
