nope, no pressure.  I work construction, on winter layoff, so I have the time to work on it.   Just sucks that it happened.  Old motor, was running good when I first got it.  I'm going to try welding the nuts on this morning, see what happens.  I have another 20 hp onan in the Sears FF, I only picked it up for the motor.  Three-spool hyd in the 420,versus single spool in the FF, so the 420 will run again.

DOH!! Went out to clean my shed a bit before the big re wire of my Ford LGT 165 diesel when I noticed the charging system was acting funny, charge one minute, the next it was not?? Cleaned shed up so I could work, n d backed the Tractor back in. Got to looking at the charging system and noticed the 6 terminal plug had gotten burnt... So off to find a new connector.... Low and behold don'tiIfind one at the local CAP store. Went home and spliced it in. Thank god for the kubota manual in the manuals section, as i was able to figure out what went where, and even hooked up a charge lamp too, now ill know if i left the key on or not. Now it charges like a champ. But i still need to do the wiring revamp with new junctions and fused circuits. But that may need to wait, as a storms' a brewin for next week. And I need this rig ready to go.

I finished working on the broken bolts on the heads on the onan b48g motor on the 420.  The 'weld nuts onto the studs' method was a bust...so I drilled out the studs (all 4) and retapped them.    I cleaned out all the carbon and gunk in both heads, cleaned the intake and exhaust ports,  used new head gaskets, then put it all back together.  It fired right up.  I still have the original problem tho, surging.  can't figure that one out.  It isn't the carb float, I checked that.  getting enough gas in the carb.  I have to choke it some to keep it running smooth.

Air leaking around the throttle shaft bushings?

Could it be leaking air at the seam of the intake itself. It's a 2 piece intake and I have had one that was giving me trouble.

Finally got to try out snow blower on the Ford LGT195. Works great. Cold, but works great.

Put the new fuel pump in the Roper.
It's been hard to get the fuel in the carb as there were many times it wouldn't stay primed.

About 3 seconds, the fuel was in the carb and it starts like it should.

Wish I'd done this months ago.

I put the brass float in the Onan in the Roper today.

Big difference.  Plastic one went in the trash.

Runs like it should now.

Finished building a three point box for the Gravely 18H. Planning to use it to haul the snowbloower to the neighbors.

Did some work on the Amigo.  We managed to free up the transmission shifting components.  Rebuilt the driveshaft & installed an engine.  After testing the tranny function while on jack stands I actually got to drive this thing around the yard a little bit. Had to remove the hood and reinstall the seat.  I was impressed with how this trans/axle functions.  A very unique machine.     :thumbs:    Rick

I re mounted the snow plow on the Moto Mower... After trying to put it on the craftsman unsuccessfully.
