Just thought I'd post a video of my freshly restored Model N running. Its taken awhile, but the results were worth the wait for me. Its been bored .020 over, and it has a new rod, the carb was rebuilt, and all gaskets, and seals were replaced. I had a new ID tag made for it since my original was in poor shape, and I got a set of the correct reproduction decal. The complete rebuild thread for this is in the mechanical section here. Thanks for watching.

I remember my Uncle ( olcowhand ) having one of these engines years ago (or one similar) in one of the barns in Ky. I was little but I remember him putting different length pipes on the muffler, seeing how quiet he could get it. olcowhand and his Dad my grandpa intrigued me more then anyone else in my life. Inspired me to tear everything apart when I got home, just to see how things worked. Of course my Dad was never to happy about that lol

Awesome job. I love the sound of an old single cylinder.
