Wow that splined shaft was straight at one time. How do you twist a shaft like that with a 10hp engine?

Have heard of several with twisted off axles, so I believe many weren't hardened correctly. Or I could go with Wisconsin's being plain brutish engines.:D

Are you using a rattle can or a gun? How do you keep your shop warm enough to paint?
I wish it was warm enough for me to paint....:mecry:

Use rattle can primer anymore. Works just as good as bulk spray, unless filling imperfections. I use spot puTty for that anyway. Almost hit 60F here today! I did heat the shop a few degrees. I have a hanging propane shop furnace.


I would almost give anything for 60 degree weather right now. I am anxious to see the finished project :D :thumbs:

We were in the 40's here... and I was thinking that was warm. My garage is not insulated and I have no way to heat it. Therefore, there is not much happening here with my tractors, even though I have a ton of work to do.

Took a few pics of the innards of the engine. I have a NOS piston & rings to go into it. Hard to find parts, but if you keep a close watch on ebay & other places, you can snag them. Patience is the key.


Yep, the connecting rod and piston are expensive and hard to find New. I kept watching ebay and was able to snag a NOS connecting rod for $20!

I gave no more than that for the piston & ring set!

Nice work Daniel! That tractor will certainly be "as good as new " when you are done with it.

Got all the innards back in & engine back plate on. Then I hit a snag. I've found the mag/bearing plate is not the same between the S7D and the TR-10D....the one for the S7D is deeper, so bottomed on the crank. So I picked up the original plate & it was in 2 pieces. Was cracked & I hadn't seen it when I slipped it off. So if I feel up to it, I'll try TIG welding the plate back together. It'll still bolt up to the S7D block so I can bolt it down to get a good flush fit. After welding, I have to mount the mag over to the welded bearing plate. Been unbearably hot today, so worked on the engine some, & will get cows with newborn calves in late tonight when the temps drop a bit.


Yep, I have been there before. Everything is going smoothly and then something like that pops up.
I remember one time I assembled all the internal parts of the engine and got the gear cover all bolted on and I forgot to put in the ball that goes on the cam spring:wallbanging:
