I forgot you had that little thing, Don.  Is that a camshaft driven shaft out the rear or a mounting stud?

That is just a mounting stud

Did you ever figure out what that engine powered in its day?

Well I got it running and it runs pretty good...........sort of it pops a bit and backfired a few times. I think I have to re adjust the carb. I think the proper setting for the main jet is 1 1/2 turns from light seat, The idle I believe id 1 turn from light seat.

It dances around like a hula dancer on caffeine.It has no wheels or rubber stoppers on the bottom. I'm hoping it will smooth out like it was before after I get the cab adjusted.  I will be putting a fuel shutoff on it as soon as I can find a good metal one. I don't like the plastic ones as they melt inside with all the ethanol we have in our gas here.  I might try to get my son to video it and post it to his youtube site so I can show you how it runs. Thanks.                                        Roger.

The popping may be a sticking valve. Marvel in the gas will reduce the popping. I use the Marvel in everything that burns gas, it helps alot IMO. I buy it by the case when on sale.  Good Luck, Rick

those are just starting points, pre sets  to get your engine to start so that you can warm it up and fine tune it to the application. The crank may be different for a generator vs any other application  but different applications  of the same engine, take different carb settings
