Now is the time to get your small engine repaired and tuned up for the spring season. If you're not using it much now, learn to mothball and store it for warmer weather.

OK to bring in your own small equipment with the engine attached, such as your weed-eater, string trimmer or push mower. No re-builds available. Cost includes the book, which is provided at the first class and is an excellent reference. All equipment and tools provided.

Class is for anyone employed using equipment or interested maintaining their own engines. It introduces the history and operating principles of combustion engines and provides maintenance tips and diagnostic procedures to keep them running properly. Topics include port design, fuels and fuel metering systems, ignitions and spark testing, compression testing, leak-down testing and basic rebuild versus replace process.
