Got this ridemaster running again It hadn't ran for a few years I replaced the fuel lines, fuel bowl, muffler, spark plug wire, replaced the belts an reverse discs an changed oil. I think it will still need a carb rebuild though it doesn't idle smooth an is hard starting

Glad to hear you got it running

I rotated the picture for you :D

 

Did you manage to find a NOS Bell muffler?

 

I got to start working on mine this spring!

Thanks for fixing the picture I thought I was holding the phone correctly this time but apparently not. I got three nos mufflers in a deal they are the correct muffler for the ridemaster. This Ridemaster will not be restored wanted to keep one original planning to put a grader blade on this one

. Yea I'm pretty happy with this purchase I think I'm going to just change out the carb with a different one this one is pretty worn out Its good having a few spare engines laying around to pull parts off of!
