I believe the idler is only needed when the blade shaft is vertical,  like in brush saw mode with the cordwood conversion removed.  ???

 

Yup!  found it.

Looks like it can stay in place when using it as a log or cordwood saw.  It doesn't do anything but it'll be out of the way.

Bolens with a Unisickle mower.  Also got the rear mount cultivator with it.  Don't believe I even tried to start it - just parked it in the shed with the others.

Guilty as charged.  The PJ you took left a spot for one more. Thats where this one is.  When you saw this one it was already inside. 

 

Now the handiman I got from you is still sitting outside and I'm having real trouble finding a sheltered spot.  I turned the base plate around on the engine, serviced the engine, and ran it some.  Problem is if I mount the engine then I can't push the tractor as I don't have a flat belt to drive it. 

 

Recon the landlord and/or the tax man would notice another lean-to?  :smilewink:

heck I'd just space out a couple of the vans and throw a tarp over them, then park in the middle. I use a serp belt off a cummins semi engine on mine. I think the size was 35.2", its tricky to get it on with that type of drive pulleys. Turn the belt over and run it on its back side or it grabs to much.

Today I offer something a little different.

 

How about a cart for a walk behind?

This came with the 1919 Midwest Utilitor I bought back in July.  I figure it is not original to the tractor, but it could very well be modeled after an original cart.  Other than most of the hardware being modern six sided nuts instead of period correct four sided,  this cart is a real thing of beauty.  No plywood - all real wood 1-X's and the wood has no knots except in the flooring where pine was used.  Notice the grease cups on the wheels.   The toolbox is an IHC unit but it looks good on there.  ENJOY!!

Ya'll seen this before but I'm hookin up the booster cables to this thread once again.

 

NO IDEA what flavor this one is.  Steel wheels with aluminum spikes.  Wood handles with a stationary tool carrier sporting a caster wheel and holding the shovels. A lever and linkage controls shovel height.  Lauson engine.

Been digging around in the engine building looking for engines that ran great a decade ago but have been neglected since. 

I've decided "tinkering" is my bag.  Full-on restorations are not nearly as much fun and tend to closely resemble a job after just a short while. 

While digging around I found an old Clinton that used to run great.  Had totally forgot about this engine.  It was burried behind other engines to where it couldn't be seen.  I remember the auction back in '02 or '03 where I got it.  Instead of being bolted to a piece of wood it is bolted to a piece of metal and even had a throttle cable installed.   This one had to ride home in the front seat of the pickup because I had the bed of the pickup stacked higher than the cab.  :smilewink:    

Hauled it to the shop and checked-er over.  Full of oil, gas tank dry and clean.  Pull the plug.  Most beautiful blue spark I believe I've ever seen.  How on earth can points not corrode while sitting more than ten years?   Especially here in the humidity belt.

For some reason it didn't start right up but gave me fits for a full hour.  Finally, it decided to go and ran really good.  Guess it just wanted me to yank on the rope 60-70 times.  *%)*&$%)%*

Get to thinkin this engine ought to be ON something so I go looking for a tractor that needs an engine. 

The Clinton has belt guides that look like something from a walk behind. It also has the three groove pulley like for multiple speeds on a 2 wheeler.   Have a few Midland and Dandy-Boy's that could utilize a good engine but this Milwaukee Tiller really screamed out at me. 

I'll put the Clinton on here.   That'll be close to correct and I might wanna till something this spring.

M-E.jpg

Fired up the pickup with the liftgate and moved the tiller from its storage shed to the shop. 

Wheels are solid cast iron and this machine is HEAVY.  Be even worse when I get the cast iron block Clinton on there as compared to the aluminum block Tecumseh. 

Don't intend to paint this up - just get it operable.

Dug my standard Walsh out of Dad's barn today and moved it to my barn. Hoping to get this running again soon.

Five inches of snow last night.  The Twin was closest to the door.
