Sorting out all the photos and found this.

The Yanmar L40 engine is now on my Ariens mower but first it was mounted to the Ariens front tine tiller for break-in from new. Sat under a work bench for years before the owner got tired of looking at it.

The Arines was painted green and red, this is after testing, a dirt shield was fab'ed up after these photos.

Thanks, did not speed up the tines any faster then the original ground speed, 3 inch pulley but had more grunt at half throttle then the original Briggs did. Did a lot of gardens that spring, Peter thought the rod was knocking :thumbs: diesel knock, nothing like it.

These are old photos buried deep, the Ariens has since been replaced by the gear tranny Sears and the engine on the Ariens mower.
