Well it runs! It does smoke which the previous owner said it did. Probably had to do with that space between the carb nd the air cleaner assembly, that was loose. Hopefully it is not too bad. The variable cultch sheave was stuck/rusted so it is off and soaking. I was working on it last night and remembered I had picked one up on my trip that looked o be in good shape. Of course, it was one of the items I left at my moms house. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1364037563.347189.jpg the sheave is on the left in this picture.

That's great that it runs, even if it smokes.  Some of my worn engines will smoke when cold, but almost quit smoking entirely when warmed up good.  Likely your rings are worn due to dirt getting in with the loose air filter housing.

Yes kinda of....in an early T-63 owners manual you can see the javalina decal on the front of the tractor. I have never actually seen one on a tractor but it was on this display model for the manual. The only other tractor that actually had a javalina picture on it was the JB series in their caps on the side of the hood. Some of the early brochures have a picture of the javalina in the bush hog name and some do not.....

Thanx Scott,  I was trying to figure out how far back the Javalina mascot went.  I got this sign out of the city dump back in 1995.  After it laid around here for several years getting beat up I decided to hang it up high inside one of the sheds to protect it.  I wish it was manditory to put a  MFG. date on everything like they do tires.  :wallbanging:

Good friend reminded me the earlier/ first series of Javalina's had the image on the serial plate.

Worked on the V3-6 this past weekend. It is not charging the battery and one of the wires was loose. I know it has something to do with the switch because when I pulled the wire out from its loose position, turning the key would not cut off the motor. Any idea where the loose wire goes?ImageUploadedByTapatalk1367458444.738920.jpg



I also am going to need to get parts to hook up the carb and governor correctly.

Yep, the throttle cable definitely doesn't go the the throttle plate shaft!  I had to put pieces together for my VE4-6 for the throttle also.  I can post you some pics to show what I did.  The arm sticking up (supposed to point down) with nothing to it is where the throttle cable attaches, then a spring from this arm goes to the throttle butterfly shaft plate.  I think the TEC engine manual that covers the H70 shows the charge diode plate hookup.  Mine is all missing still, and I plan to find it later.

Well the loose wire went to the middle bottom screw......now I can kill the motor with the switch. I was taking out the rectifiers today to clean up all the connections. The one of the left was broken ( not sure if I did it or it was already broken but the motor was not charging the battery). This may be the reason my battery was not getting charged. The one on the left had a part number on it. The other did not. Are both rectifiers? Part number on the one with numbers 30842. I am guessing both are the same??

 

Also I was not able to use the pull start so I am having to jump start the motor each time.......so I pulled off the pull start to see what the issue was. Here are a few pictures....looks like I need a new cup.....but need some feedback if I am right......the recoil pulls freely and returns to position....it  just is not catching.

Scott, the notched cup looks worn, but should work ok still.  You are however missing a few pieces to your recoil assembly. I have no idea as to part numbers though, and my recoil looks much different from yours.  Here is an idea as to what is missing, which is all the parts below part #8.

Bush hogs have their own unique styling.

I love the look of these old Bush Hogs too.   My favorite is the shot looking straight at the front.  When I open my garage door at night and see my D4-7 peeking out of the darkness it always makes me think of  something from the old Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie.  But I really like it.     :oh_shucks:

Thank you I remember seeing them, but couldn't find from where.  The throttle cable attaches where? That arm I'd assume?
