Time for a new mower.

When they do this.

Lawn mower engines don't throw codes they throw rods.
I didn't hit anything and it was at the full mark for oil.
I have a mower that hasn't ran in 7 or 8 years that I fired up with the carb and fuel tank off the blown mower.
The newer mower burned less oil and started easier so I went with the newer one, but with the carb and fuel tank assembly off the newer mower it starts about the same.
I think I will put the old mower engine on the blown mowers deck, it has larger rear wheels and the mower push handle is made for someone my height.
