I don't know why Tire Town has such poor service.  I know they have those tires.  Hasn't been a month since the guy with the G Allis told me they had stacks of them.  Over the years I've even had to be rather assertive when I go there buy tires in person.

It really is a shame, as locally I can't seem to find them at all. It's an odd size I'm being told. I'm thinking about just putting some trailer tires on it just to get it around.

Peter, What size tire does the Bolens RideMaster use on the back? They are a weird size also.

The Ebay link has several set of 2 tires and tubes for one price, even the notched 3 rib original Cub/ A-C G front style tires.

If I'm reading the size correctly this is sort of close to the factory pattern

I ended up having a little time when I got home yesterday to work on the engine. I took the torch to the head where the bolt was stripped and after a minute of intense heat, she came right out! That was my 1st time using a torch on a stripped bolt.

 

As I thought, the exhaust valve was stuck open. Years of it sitting, things got up into the engine and died. The cylinder wall looks good, but the head may need an insert for the spark plug as it looks original and I'm afraid it's going to strip right out once I get it out.

 

The engine now turns over fully.

 

A step in the right direction with little time to spare since fall is quickly approaching.

I can not read the label on the Wisconsin engine, what model is it? It is original. 

 

I am also looking for a carb rebuild for the Zenith carb that's on it.

 

 

Can anyone help me with that info? Thank you very much!

I could be wrong, but I thought the Tri-Tracs all had Kohlers on them.

That's a Wisconsin for sure.
