  I started to tear down the 1100 to fix the muffler last night and I got a little carried away. :rolling:

This is what it looked like before teardown.

I can't stand that blue and black. So I decided I am goingto paint it red and white. I think it will look pretty cool. It doesn't have the right engine in anyway so it wouldn't be original at any rate.

Anyway here are some pics. of the teardown.

Coming apart.

Engine's out. It ran great so all it is goingto need is a paint job.

Getting ready to drop the transmission.

Transmission is out.

Paint is peeling pretty bad. What was the guy thinking that painted that. :mad2:

The ISO mounts have seen better days.

I can't stand that blue and black. 

 

Are you sure, really really really sure you want to repaint it?  I mean it kind of makes a statement.  Not one I would utter too loudly, but a statement none the less.

 

Good luck Levi, it will be interesting to watch.

I'd say you got quite the start on it.  Good luck with it and I will be looking forward to seeing the pics of it as it comes back together.

 

What is the torching on the frame from?  Needed to fit the carb of that engine?

Yes,but he cut out WAY more than he needed to. It needs a tiny piece taken out to clear the carburetor.

Today I took the front axle,transmission and frame over to the car wash and cleaned all the grease off. Then I took the frame over to my grandfathers and we welded it back up. I had a spare frame that somebody had cut the front off of and I cut a piece out of it to weld into the other frame. 

After cleanup of the area.

The new piece of frame.

All welded up. I think it turned out pretty well. I will grind the weld down later.

I've never seen a Briggs flywheel shroud with a removable section at the top like this one.  Looks too clean not to be factory, and I assume you do have it?

You definitely MUST cover that hole as you will overheat for sure!  You could use sheet metal & rivet it in place at sides & bottom & use bolts up on top.

Thanks for the tip. I will do something with it. It looks like it was designed to provide easy access to the Magnatron.
