I brought home more than I took, which I think is typical of going to a show.

First off are the 24X12X12 Carlisle Turf Savers on wheels. I have a tractor that needs new shoes.

Next is the 10" plow I traded for.

Now the freebees! First is an old Firestone lug tire cut for pulling. But what I wanted was the wheel to cut in two and fix my other pair of 6 lugs FF wheels.

Then a Carlisle Super lug, 23X10.50X12 in near new shape. I might part with this if someone has the other tire.

And last is (I'm hoping) a very good investment. It was bought at an auction an they said it was locked up.

Purchaser took the heads off and looked it over. Found the coil pack had come loose and wedged into the crank keeping it from turning over. Has decent compression turning by hand on dry cylinders. I'll need a starter and new head gaskets for it. Exhaust also. Coil pack doesn't look like it's hurt to me.

I spent less than $75 for the items I purchased.

The best part is that the coil pack looks very usable. I reset it to specs. Now to get a starter so I can see if it runs!

I'm a cheap old fart! Ain't got a lot of money so I don't spend a lot! Sometimes I have to wait a while for the deal to come along!

Kenny, if you want to buy new parts, a new starter is $150.  Two head gaskets for $26. 

 

As far as exhaust goes, you have a couple options.  If I was you, I would hunker down with earmuffs and fire it up and let the buyer decide. 

 

There is the individual setup using adaptors that allow each cylinder to accept its own separate pipe.  That's how you get dual stacks on a Magnum.  That would set you back about $225 using new parts.  Probably half that using used adapters. 

 

There is a down draft setup that blows the exhaust sort of down and behind the engine.  Popular on air compressors and the like where water might get in and clearance is an issue.

 

The official muffler setup has been discontinued, but there are other options.

I think the magnum is the same block dimensions as the K series twin of similar HP. If so, the muffler from a GT that used a KT twin would fit.

Great bunch of stuff you got for cheap buddy!! I have a couple K twin starters that you can have one if it will fit. Maybe someone can tell us if they interchange?

Something else I will need is the pulley for the flywheel end. I plan to put this in the Craftsman III with electric lift. I'm hoping one of the PTO's from a B&S 18HP will go on the other end.

I don't think they will interchange as this is the one I have.
