Yes, it does suck. Just mix up a little and brush it on. It's a pain, but it's worth it.

Here is a better shot of paint from gas drip. I'm not going to paint it
for now, It gives it character.

These two pictures show an accidental discovery.
Ita a perpetual motion machine. I stuck the gas line
in the end of the muffler just to keep it out of the
way while I lifted the engine out of the tractor.
Well the exhaust gas is now going in the fuel line
and back through the carburetor and filling
the float bowl and keepin the engine running.


I'm not making this up, Honest.


I also have land for sale if anyone is interested

Go to our manuals section for Briggs engines and download the single cylinder "L" head engine manual.

That may have been the same model engine as was originally in a later 1107 model. Looks like it's in basically good shape.

The head was warped so I had to flycut it in the bridgeport.
I had to take off about .010" of an inch to get it to clean up.
I then polished inside the combustion chamber to give it
a good cleaning. the piston has a few small scratches
in it but otherwise good shape. The block had a big
seam or ridge inside the intake port from when block was cast.
I took my dremmel and cleaned that up.
