    I said I work on them. I never said I fix them!

Well, what do you know?  Here it is the end of June and I actually got to work on the B12 for the third time.  I'm going to set a record this year.  I got the valves all set (I think) and re-installed.  Once I learned about the valve spring keepers, it was a piece of cake.  So I got eveything back together, put oil in it and put juice to it.  It was putting pretty good.  Sounded a lot different than when I tried last.  It turned over pretty well but never did fire and all my gas started to run out onto the floor.  I want to get this thing to fire on gas before I do much else to it.  We're getting there.  Couple more years and it may just start!

Don't loose faith Jeff. Glad you got it back together.
Oh, and that gas straining feature, I have a couple that do that too. I would tell you how I "fix" it, but I don't want the grief :D

Hope you can find some more time to work on it. As an owner of more non-running, than running tractors, I can relate to your post.   :D

Thing is, I want this thing running because if I would happen to get the implements, I want to be able to plow with it.  I guess I could use them on the B10 also but I want to use this B12 with the hi/lo tranny.
