Are you going to add chains to the tires or just leave it with the studs on?

Then got the hoods off & began making a to do list. Managed to do a few small things.

Then I started to put on the dozer blade. Ran into trouble when I realized we were a part short. Time to fab. Still way ahead of the game

The KT17 decided that it was time to reject its governor gear and deposit it in the bottom of the crankcase.
Looks like one of the fly weights over extended itself and hit something along the way.
We did find the source of the low compression, both intake valves were way too tight and need to be clearanced. So a good re-lapping and a little grinding on the stems and that part should be good to go.
It seemed strange that there wasn't any ring groove at all in either cylinder, just a little very minor scoring on the tops and bottoms of the cylinders. A close inspection revealed that it had .010 over pistons in it. So at some point (it would seem that it was just before we had purchased it) the engine had been rebuilt. Everything else looks good in it, so I think we are going to try a new governor gear and a gasket kit and see what happens.
I do need to take a picture of the front seal, no wonder we always had an oil leak behind the electric clutch. The seal was probably in a 1/16 of an inch farther at the bottom than the top. :rolleyes:
