Now all you need Alan is a pair of roller skates, and you'll be set! Congrats. :thumbs:

Had a very good day doing little odd jobs. One of the last, was working on this generator
post-802-0-67629200-1416277931.jpg
Rebuilt the pull start, made a gov linkage and put a bowl gasket in the carb.
Fired on the third pull and runs very nice. Had a light plugged in and then a skil saw too. Only a 1750w unit, but worth having for the $25 I have invested.
Need to find an air cleaner and then it's ready to work at the lower garage as a lights unit.

The air cleaner base looks the same as the one on my 6Hp Tecumseh Troybilt. It's a round can like with a sponge filter inside, has kehole holes, slide over turn and tighten down.

Bet Ben or sponser would carry.

Well, the auction tractors were delivered this afternoon, Thanks to fellow member Brandon (IH Nut). He also picked up the round fender blade with flat fender adapter for me that I bought on Craigslist out his way.

Another big "THANKS" to both Alan and Brandon, as well as Brandon's brother-in-law, Sam for all of the help. I really appreciate it guys!!  :thumbs:

Good to hear they made it home.

How long before one is finished?

Well? That may take a couple of days. I took the blade off of 110 #1, and put both the blade and tractor in the garage. 110 tractor #2 is currently sitting next to the garage for now, since it doesn't have an engine. 110 tractor #1 has had some major battery acid leakage, and really ate part of the frame and lower pedestal away. Since the engine is free, and will start, I think I'm going to pull the engine from this tractor, and install it in 110 #2. If all goes well tomorrow, I'd like to start swapping parts tomorrow. Both 110's are 1966 years, so no harm done in swapping or exchanging parts. I have another '66 110 frame and pedestal, so eventually putting 110 #1 back together won't be hard. I'll have to keep you posted.

I just couldn't help myself.
It's been cold. Colder than I'm used to this winter. Not colder than its ever been or the ice age cometh cold, but cold.
Last night it got down to -15f at my house. At 3pm it was 15f... Still not warm.
Decided to play with this

As you can see, it's a generator. With a Tecumseh engine.

As you can also see, it has been in an unheated place.
If I had let it warm up a little more, the choke could've come off, but I was cold too and the muffler was blowing a hole in the snow. You can see I tried to move it, but the springs are frozen down to the ground.

I still can't get over how willing this is to start.
