OSB????


:rolling: The other mark is a nail head.

Another case where you Canadians have a weird word for it...

I think the trade name up there is Aspenite.

As for the plug, glad you're OK... I bet you jumped tho :D

Geez Will, that is crazy!  It must have backfired to fire the plug that hard??

Ah,yes, Aspenite. That's what it is.

Not sure why you guys had to go and rename it. :smilewink:

 

The thought of having to post a picture of a spark plug sticking

out of my forehead, went through my mind as I was picking it up

off the floor. I will keep my head out of the way for sure from now on.

Also know as "chipboard" to some.

 

Glad you didn't get hit with a flying plug, that would of hurt.

I finished getting this one back together and running good today.

The original motor was too badly worn out.

I had one on the shelf, that needed new crank bearings.

While it was apart, it got new piston/rings/rod. The bore was good.

 

I had it out this afternoon, for a spin. Everything seems good. Hydro is good.

I can pop the front wheels off the ground, by throwing it from full reverse into forward.

 

Not quite sure what I'm going to do with it now, but at least it got saved from the scrap yard.

I'm thinking that too.

Nephews, and other misfits can use it, and I won't get grey waiting

for it to come back out of the bush. :smilewink:
