Well the wood stove was going and the coffee pot was 10 feet away, so it seemed only logical. My girlfriend was sitting next to me most of the time and I did put a piece of cardboard down first. When I said " check it out, it's got spark " she gave me the look. You would think anyone would be curious as to what makes an engine work...guess not.
Anyway, I still have a bunch more parts to clean and I have to swap out the flywheel screen, since this will be a rope/crank start engine on the Mighty Mite.

Can't understand your getting "the look" from your girlfriend. That just isn't right... a girl not getting excited about an engine!!! :)

I was already pushing my luck Kenny, and I'd like to live to hear it run. Actually, she's pretty good about my tractor junk.

When I left my boss's farm on Friday his dairy milker and her friend was working on her truck replacing the bad CV joint for the 4-wheel drive.

 

On my way by the shop to the field i blurped the Jake and got some giggles out of them, both girls are in their early 20's and mechanically inclined to a degree with a shop manual between them, having owned 7 Chevy S-10 trucks i stopped in and gave them a few advice before heading home that evening.

 

Yes Bill, Jim, both girls are cute and think my International dump truck's sexy :thumbs:  sigh !! i miss vocational school :dancingbanana:

I took masonry back in high school at a votec center here. Our teacher was a great guy and looked like he just stepped out of the fifties. His hair was greased back, had thick rimmed glasses, and always had a pen in the pocket of his yellow or white short sleeve button up shirt. He was ALWAYS serious, and I learned alot from him.
The girls from the cosmetology class would stop in once in a while and offer free haircuts, so naturally we would go even if we didn't need one. My teacher would look over the top of his glasses from behind his desk when those of us that didn't need a haircut said yes. You should have seen the look on his face when the girls stopped by offering manicures...my nails never looked so good, HA!

For reference, here is a pic of an NOS Briggs ZZ crankshaft seal, Briggs part number 69740. It's a National seal, part number 50336. The current National part number for this seal is 450336 and is easy to find if you search this current number. This seal is the correct seal for the differential pinion shaft/housing on the Mighty mite, also.

 

So is this seal 1/2'' Thick?

I'm going to catalog this into my system for future reference. As the Old stock is being depleted its crucial we take the numbers down and try to find an interchange before they are gone so future collectors can still get parts.

Yes, catalog this seal Bolens1000. The dimentions for National seal, part number 450336 are 1.187 x 2.250 × .500. Rebuilding these old tractors really gets us searching.
