Beautiful work, Adam !!!!!!!

Sorry for the nit-picking, but two things jump out at me: the B&S muffler and the missing screen for the pulley on the flywheel.

New kohler mufflers are $50 compaired to $3 for a briggs and I think if sounds better. I do have the screen and clip, but it never got painted. Will get done when i paint the snow plow or mower deck.
thanks fkr all the kind words guys.
