Does the engine have compression when you turn the flywheel? 

 

          Yes . I am hopeful.

Looks like a decent sarter. I would like to have one of those in my collection someday.

By the way, I'm fallible myself so join the club. First of all I would spray a little penetrating oil on the flywheel screen screws and the four screw holding the coil in place. Let it sit overnight then try removing the screws after lightly tapping the screws with a small hammer. The rust also needs to be cleaned off of the outer surface of the flywheel. Use only sandpaper to do this. Don't use a wire brush or steel wool.
You will need to remove the recoil starter clutch to remove the flywheel, and you should get the correct puller to remove the flywheel. Once the flywheel is off, you will find the points and condenser under a tin cover. I can help you out more tomorrow since it's getting late now.

I was looking over the actual parts list for this motor  . Hmmmmm now what is that the red arrow is 'point'ing to.

I won't be able to do much till it warms up , Have to get ahold of a puller .

Thanks to you all, I do have an idea of what I need to do , where to begin,  to figure this thing out .

In the mean time , I am making arrangements to get the shroud and pull starter . I do have the rusty bits soaking with penetrating oil.  

I will be checking the fuel system seals .

That part that the red arrow is pointing to is the condenser, and the points assembly is just above it and is number 343. It shouldn't take too much to get that engine running.

Ya , I don't know why Pat would have said this doesn't have them , ??? He is getting up there -75 this year in 2 weeks , and some health issues .

I don't think it should be too difficult to get things going on this . Ordered up all the tires and tubes -

'Rusty' only had one of his lever knobs left - I got a replacement set from sears - Ya - I will be on the lookout for originals , cheap plastic doesn't do much for me.

But it does cover the sharp points for now.

I don't think I ever seen those small turf tires like that. Aeen them on Cub 180-184's and some gold course mowers, but never that small. 

 

Looks good sitting there, bet you are eager to get it going.

I have all of the 'correct' tires on the way already ! I hate to see 'him' like this .

On a different note - My Mother had a mild heart attack yesterday and I am her care taker at this point .

So I may be out of touch here for awhile.

Yes one in the same !! I did get one shroud from Don .

It looks good on this !! I have sent you the check Jeff . I will decide which parts of what to use after I see both- the other will be used for a special project I want to do .

Mom is home today now . And My Dad made it thru his Triple by-pass - things are settling down so I can get back on track with this a little bit. Just need warmer weather to do the rims painting . Before I mount the tires . I can mess a bit with the motor - but it gets cold fast out in the garage.

1024a.jpg

I like it - so nice to see this motor the way it should look.

1024c.jpg

Thank You to all who wished my Parents well during their recent ordeals . I am hoping they both have good recoveries . Oh I didn't mention my father also had heart surgery yesterday in Tucson ,Az . I actually had to go to Battle Creek for an MRI myself to try to get an Idea of what is causing me some of my own problems. Sheesh , It has been a bad month for my family .

I am glad to have a diversion like this to get my mind elsewhere.

This is my Jeep in the driveway last week. Wish I had a Bulldozer!

Sorry to hear you guys are having troubles, but very glad Mom is home, Dad made it thru and things are gonna settle down some.

If your ticker is giving you fits, don't try to shovel that jeep out.
