Yep, I do...a neighbor was over tonight helping bale and he pointed out that since they shut down the junk yard near us and cleaned the place up that I am clearly the number one "hillbilly" around these parts just by the shear volume of stuff that I have around. I don't know if that is a compliment or an insult....but I usually don't have to look far when I need something to fabricate from. :laughingteeth:

I know I haven't given an update in awhile, but that's just because I haven't felt like spending the money to have this block machined, but I dropped the block off at the machine shop Monday, and it should be ready tomorrow or Thursday! :laughingteeth: Anyway, I thought you guys might like to see what I've done with the carburetor on this engine. You know how old carbs loose that oem goldish tint they have from the factory, well I've been dying to try the Eastwood's companys carb refinish, so I bought some, and I love it!!! Here are a few pics, so let me know what you think. :thumbs:

Just thought I'd post a couple more pics, as I spent some time today rebuilding my little flowjet carbs. I rebuild carbs quite regularly, and its always rewarding to have the engines run so much better, but they never look very good. I love this Eastwood stuff, as it makes them look as good as they run! :laughingteeth: The one with the air cleaner is to my 47 NP, and the one with the intake is to my 44 model N.

I got the block back from the machine shop yesterday. It had to be bored .020, decked, and valves, and seats ground. I got it painted today, along with a few other pieces, and I'm happy with the way it turned out. Although I know someone will point out that Briggs never painted them this glossy, but I like it. I also ordered new decals, and a new ID tag for it, since all that was left of my tag was the numbers. :thumbs:

Just a few more pics of some of the parts. I got my NOS Biggs .020 piston, a new correct for a model N plug wire, and a vintage gold Wester Auto spark plug that I really like the looks of, and the thumb screw for the plug. Along with a couple pics of the machined block.

I'm still waiting for some parts to come in before I can finish it, but I decided to mock it up so I could bend the fuel line, and check a couple other things. So, what do you guys think?

I finally got all my parts in, and got it running, and it runs great! :rocker2: I really couldn't be happier, it started on the second pull, and never smoked a drop. Thanks to everyone who followed along with me on this rebuild. Here is a video, and a couple more pics. :thumbs:
