The real mystery is, what did you use for a welder to weld the patches on the handle?


Oh, no. I cant take undeserved credit... That was my FIL's handiwork.

Nice save at least you kept all that stuff out of the scrap yard! Expect the next challenge to be bigger, then bigger, then bigger. Eventually you can repower his car for $20 :laughingteeth: :laughingteeth:

Update:

Today was the day... The day that Ryan an I went up to till my In Laws raised garden beds. The moment of truth... Did I waste $10 ???

I can't get a GT & tiller in there, so I was praying the FrankenTiller had weathered the winter OK. A little water in the carb because it lost its tarp part way thru the winter (unknown to me, but then again, I should've guessed... Sigh) but other than that little bugaboo all worked very well. My MIL can plant her garden this year with ease and my FIL is happy his old tiller was able to do the work.

Glad it did the job! Can't beat a $10 repair job!
