Nice haul. How many of them run?
they all are free (not stuck) except one the egine was blown and i got it engine for that one disassembled in a 5gal pale....but the other 9 items turn over....and so far i have gotten 2 of them running, that would be the roto-hoe, and the versa-matic.....the versa-matic was the easiest so far to get going.....the roto-hoe faught me for half the day with a gummed up carb.....if i were to have left the carb sit in the cleaner for a couple hours or even over night then it probably wouldnt have been such a pain, but put it all back togeather and it would run but not idle, so i pulled it back off and low and behold theres two little tiny holes in the venturie i missed, so i got the torch tip cleaners out and went to town on them and vala she idles now....im not realy use to small engine stuff, but with the help of reading all of the topics and Q and A's on GT Talk, its amazing what you can pickup....
- MH81 and Newpaws493 have said thanks

any advice thanks,
oh and i did get a drive belt for the versa-matic, and i didnt expect it to go that fast in the first notch, let alone in the high notch, i had to jog behind it just to keep up with it.....
