I have spent a portion of my evening trying to find who the culprit is, but this showed up in my parking area tonight.

The kids wagon was sitting there, and they set it inside . 12hp, sept 29 of 69 date code.

Needs (needed about 150 hours ago) an oil change, and the butterfly has a lot of slop, but it makes noise on choke cleaner.

Also, it's been out of the tractor for a long time by the look of the output shaft

Have to wait until the delivery person lets me know who they are to do a proper TY and try to get the rest of the story.

Alan, did anyone at your house loose any teeth lately! Maybe it was the tooth fairy and that engine belongs under someones pillow! That was a nice present to find when you came home from a hard day at the office!
