The pump mount arrived, and I have it mounted, and the crank to pump adapter in place.  I had to cut 1 1/4" off the crank to make room.  This is a Case 446 hydraulic pump mount, and their engines use a stub crank.  The top bolts are loose because the muffler bracket has to bolt there, so once pump is all tightened up, I can bolt the muffler on.

Found 2 new small rolls of wire loom I had misplaced, so got the finished wiring protected.

With a little luck, I may get this engine mounted & fired tomorrow.

I like the old chain coupler.  I haven't seen one of those in awhile.  We used to use them on a lot of mining machinery coupling up hydraulic pumps to electric motors.  Then they slowly phased those out and started using Rexnord Omega Couplers and some of the LoveJoy couplers with the rubber spider.

This coupler works better than the rubber couple LoveJoys.  This digger came with a LoveJoy, but ate the rubber fast.  Thinking it was just age, bought a new rubber and it ate it.  Alignment looked ok, but was off enough under heavy load that it chewed it up.  Put this chain style on and end of problem.

  Today is slow.  Last night was one of those sleepless ones, so feel like crud today.  Been in the shop though and have the engine mounted on the digger.  Got the stator wires hooked up, filled engine with oil, and after lunch I'll pull the plugs & spin her over to fill the new oil filter & pressurize the lines.  Still have to mount the blowby tube, coil, and air filter housing, plus I have to go pick up my fuel pump & get that all hooked up.  I have several rolls of hay to put out today, but still hope to fire her up before night.  Oh, and I forgot, I need to weld a new muffler outlet pipe on.  The original broke out & no idea where it went.

I've got a similar problem with a flex coupler on my Kubota G4200 and snowblower. Came with a little fiberglass disc similar to what is used on the simplicity drive shafts. Broke the first one after upgrading to 21hp. Kubota wants 80 bucks for one. Took a piece of heavy belting and made one like the rag couplers on the old Cub Cadets only much thicker. Lasted about an hour moving snow today before it blew apart. Wish I knew of something more durable yet still flexible. Any ideas?

Must need quite a bit of flex.  The Allis 620/720 and Simplicity Powermax series use the same type disc, but larger.  They handle 20hp for years.

May not get the Onan fired today.  Been out with Mom & Dad discussing a new Dr for Mom.  Her Dr has cancer and is scaling back to his furthest office which Mom doesn't want to travel to, plus he will eventually retire soon.  I think she's gonna try Dad's Dr right close in Hodgenville.  Now to drink a cup of coffee, then feed rolled hay.

  Speaking of Dr's, my checkup is early in the morning.

It pushed me a bit, but after putting out the hay rolls, I got back to the backhoe.  I got the muffler outlet welded in, with a slant to direct exhaust slightly rearward.  Metal was pretty thin, so added a backer washer so I could direct the weld to it and let the weld flow to the thin muffler.

Then I got all but the air filter housing and the fuel pump mounted.  I just used jumper clips to run power to the fuel pump to speed things up.  I was running out of steam.  Then I go to fire it and discover my ignition wire must have a break inside it, as nothing is getting down the line.  So I get another jumper wire to bypass the problem.  She fired right up!  Everything is running smooth with absolutely no vibrations.  Oil pressure is 38 to 40 idle or full speed.  It'll drop some when hot, but that's normal.  Charge circuit is working perfectly.

Video is poor, as this cell phone doesn't like to be moved at all during video recording, but it's all I have for video at the moment.

Dr says all is good. INR number is great at 2.5. They pulled 5 vials of blood to give everything a test as it's been a while on a few things. Teresa is getting a few things while in town, then I gotta get home to feed cattle and try to wrap up the backhoe.

The backhoe is finished unless I go with the new tongue idea, but I'll do that later if I do it at all.  But now she's ready to dig and do it without all the fuss the old engine gave.  The old engine got to where anytime the bypass had to kick in, she would die.  This Onan will squeal the bypass at an idle without complaining.  Oh, and I got my engines messed up in my head.  This is a stock B43G with 18hp, not 20hp as I said before.

  Tomorrow will be mostly shop cleanup day.  I have tools & crap all over the place!
