The Not So Bad,
Serial # 9397 has the original Wisconsin engine in it. It has both Front and Rear PTO's and Engagement handles.Still has grill emblem and muffler shield. Has the lifting draw bar with linkage in the back.
Over the last week, I have been stealing a few minutes here and there and got the Carb. off, rebuilt and back on . I went thru the wiring and hung a starter/generator on it and starting turning it over. Before I did spin it over I pulled the plug and gave it a good soak with PB Blaster and let it sit for a couple days. I checked the gas tank and it was fairly clean so I poured some Sea Foam in it and let it sit. Yesterday I spun it over and had no spark so I cleaned the points and worked plunger in and out to free it up. I gave some gas and tried to get her to hit, but it didn't have any compression. I thought about it last night and figured I needed to see if both valves were opening and closing.Today I had a few more free minutes so I checked them and sure enough the exhaust valve was stuck open. I got it freed up and put power to the coil, spun it over and she came to life at the expense of any bugs within 50 feet on the shop, boy she id smoke a lot until all the Blaster was burnt off. The engine runs great and the clutch works great also. This engine and clutch is going to be pulled out of this tractor and get installed into my Original D4-10 to complete it. Here's the thread on that tractor,
