I'm hoping to get some cuddle time with the B-1 over the next couple days.  I think I can get this issue solved.  You can bet I'm determined.  29 days until the GOTO Centennial show in LaPorte!

Well...tried a few more things that didnt help. I had her fired up and running great Saturday morning, enough so to actually use it a bit. Ran it and drove it and then dared to put the National away on the pallet rack. Everything went great until I shut her down...now...nothin again.

It was fun for a minute!

Well, the 19 deteriorated quickly, so it will definitely need a rebuild.  I found a local donor in the mean time, with an appropriate age and sized Briggs 19D.  Runs great.

Time to clean up and swap...

A good degreasing and a date with the wire wheel had it cleaned up well enough for me, with little time invested.

In my haste last nite to begin removing the 19 (I need to remove the front weights, pump, hood, grill, etc), I didn't secure my pump and reservoir in it's resting place (leaving the hoses attached).  I took the kiddo's inside and got everyone bathed, fed and off to bed, before returning to a mess....about 2 quarts of fresh 30SAE on the garage floor.  Grr...

Next, I hope to paint up my weights, and then get those engines swapped and the 19D all hooked up.  Re-installing that grill frame is a real bear in this configuration.  The pump mount is very much in the way, since the engine PTO shaft extends through the grill, requiring the grill frame to be 'rocked' backward into place.  I will have to make sure no children are around, and the doors and windows closed tightly before I begin that task.  A muzzle may even be helpful.

Got them swapped out last nite, but discovered another surprising issue. My rear driveshaft coupler has delaminated and needed changed out. Since the engine was out, I pulled the shaft from the from vs further dismantling the tractor. It was awful tight with all the hydro lines squeezed through the frame. Yanked a coupler from my donor

Engine came out and went in easy enough...purrs like a kitten and his brother will be on deck for a rebuild

Scooped up the Mow Bee and made a clean putaway...lift didnt even feel it. I like having the weight on the rear. Its the strongest part of the tractor, and keeps the steering light. A bit odd aiming while looking over your shoulder, but nothing too difficult.

Did some more shop rearranging and cleanup. Took a few pictures and a quick video clip. It takes some getting used to, and I may soften up the clutch. This would be ideal with a hydro but not quite as much fun =)

Privacy setting on YouTube is set to bedroom edition, not garage edition. Do I need to check your account for new vid uploaded public that wasn't supposed to be?
