Well, Ed (lbuhler) and his friend Steve were here today. I showed them the collection... which they had trouble taking in all at once LOL. And then I dragged the WH C81 Ed bought from me up to their trailer, with the Caterpillar. I then brought the implements and other items Ed and I were trading around to the truck. It went well, they enjoyed seeing my collection, but I feel bad for Steve, all he wanted to buy was a Springfield, which as all of you know is a NFS item LOL. Ah well, he will save another one in disrepair I am certain. I need to get busy with my Springfield 12 HP resto-repower by Spring, since I now have the engine that is going on it. Anyway, it was a good visit, and I wish my collection was in better shape...

I am using a 12 HP model Springfield and bolting a 13 HP Predator 420 onto it. Basic Honda clone setup. :D
I have had the plan since uh, before you found your engine lol.

how are those predator engines? they sell them at Harbor Freight near my house and i was going to buy one but i wasn't sure because i never heard of them. The 10hp version is only $189...thght it was a good price but like i said i never heard of them.

Well, I have yet to run mine, but Ed ran it when he bought it, and I need to work out the logistics of it fitting the Springfield 12 HP tractor yet. I don't know how long it will hold up, but I will find out after the tractor is redone this winter

Ya, hopefully they hold up really well, the 420's aren't all that cheap.
