Will that old gas even burn? That is nasty.

Nice tractor.

Oh, that is long gone. And to answer your question, no it wasn't even flammable. I tried some in the fire ring out back.

My tank was dry but rusty and cruddy. I put in some nuts, bolts, screws, etc. and shook it and then dumped them out. Next, I took some old, oil-gas mix I had that was no longer gas. I swished that and shook it and dumped it on my brush pile. I could reach a finger into the tank and it was just full of loose wet rust. I tried a magnet and got what I could reach. This was working so well that I took my newer can of mix, about 3 years old and smells a little like gas, and poured some in. I added nuts and bolts again and shook and shook. then set it so everything would "float" to one end of the tank. Magnet again grabbing piles of metal and rust. When I picked up no more, swish, shake, tumble, magnet. Repeat, Repeat, Repeat, till the magnet found nothing. I left the liquid in there till I get fire to the plug. (Still trying to figure that out) Then I will swish and magnet one last time before giving the tank a final, fresh gas rinse.

Looks good! Sounds pretty good too. In addition to the basic carb clean, I would also recommend running Sea Foam, Marvel Mystery Oil, or something similar through the engine to clean up the internals. In my experience with an OH160, 1.5 turns from seat is a good starting point for both mixture screws.

In my first post, I mentioned another tractor. This Sunday, I'm going over to take a closer look. I am taking the trailer, if that's any inclination of my intentions.

I'll start a different thread about it, but this one's a two cyl.

And now the guessing game begins! Does that mean it has two engines on it?

Awesome score Alan. As for the gas tank, Pea Gravel works well for that, and good old straight gas, you will want the potent stuff too. And after a lot of shaking, sloshing, rotating, spinning, and using it in a one man musical band you will be surprised how clean is gets. You will always want to rinse with more gas after emptying of pea gravel. Anyway, good luck on the next haul.

I've had a busy day. I had a good helper last night with KK and good help today in the rain with Ryan.

Last night KK and I did a little work on the 16, we got the 3 point all mounted up (finishing by flashlight)
Today Ryan & I remounted the old gas tank as a temporary measure, did a little rewiring, installed a replacement light switch, got the snow blower on and did some maintenance. The oil change was forced upon me as the old blower belt broke, came off the blower and promptly wrapped itself around the oil drain pipe, breaking it off at the block. Catch pan was close, but man that sucked. Stopped the engine NOW.

After finding a replacement pipe and verifying all damages were corrected, we adjusted the new belt and did a test run with it.

it's short, but it was almost dark and still raining..

For some reason, the video isn't embedding right, there is a link under the video for anyone who cant see it.
