Isn't it fun to cheat and have it actually come out right! :thumbs:

Daniel, That frame is going to turn out very nice when you get done. Hope you find a starter for the engine.

Went with Teresa to do some Christmas shopping, then came home for some tractor wrenching time. Spent a couple hours assembling the HH60 Tecumseh that goes into the V4-6. Tomorrow I may get to the point of firing this engine, but have farm work to get done, plus a family reunion at lunch time. I still need to get the governor linkages hooked up, oil in the crankcase, and some other little things. I do have spark, and she's good & blue.

Got her fired up & running. Still needs tweaking in the carb, and a new spark plug, as you can hear, but she IS alive! It would sound much better if she had a muffler on her too.
Someone needs a new sweatshirt too! The sleeves take a beating from the wire welders. LOL

You're getting right along there. Good stuff. Yes, it coughed a couple times there.
I bet that's your favourite sweatshirt too. And you just can't throw it out. I think it's
better to see you wearing that, rather than little tractor cufflinks on a white shirt sleeve.

Wow, Daniel, that's great. It sounds really good too.
Amazing how loud those little buggers are without a muffler isn't it?

Yes, one of 2 fave sweatshirts. I have some T-shirts that would make terrible grease rags due to being so hole eaten. Teresa gets really proud of me when I throw them out all on my own! :bigrofl:

Black & Decker "Work Mate" stands. I have 2 of them & they make great engine test stands. I've had them for over 20 years, one for likely 30 years.
