I got her started again today all she needed was to sit and dry out I guess ,

I did take a video of her idiling . Is this a pretty standard idol ? Seemed like there was some surging I dont really know not ever hearing another Bolens idle before .I just noticed a fuel drip from the gas tank lol

Also if I turn on the headlights it wants to kill the engine ( just found that today )

Thanks everyone

The idle sounds fine to me. I did hear a small amount of surging but I don't think it is that big of a deal. The carb my just need slightly adjusted.

 

Here is a video of my 1050 running to give you an idea of what another sounds like.

Looks really good!

Sorry, I don't know where you may find just the transmission decal.

Did you find a hydraulic lift yet?

Where is the oil? Could be a leaky headgasket, seal or breather tube..... Need a better description of where abouts the oil is seen.
