This little project has taken up a bit of my tractor exploration and such. My wife has been using my tractor more than I have. She loves to cut some grass. She has never used a riding mower before so I had to warn her that using the craftsman lawn tractor just wouldn't be the same experience plus she looks pretty darn good on the Bolens.

Here they are, purchased and in the back of my truck. One complete sprayer and one for parts. I am thinking about using the frame of the parts sprayer to make something else.

Looks like I will have a pull behind generator. I need to fix or replace the engine. This thing is an army generator.

sure is. I may need to use a stencil to get the info on it. The generator is from 1945 and came with a Briggs.

I tried to start this a year ago or so and it didn't seem to have compression or it pulls like my two stroke boat motor, so easy it is like pulling air. I will do a compression test and see what's up.

My PTO told me something was wrong and I looked under the deck and sure enough it was telling me the truth. When did this rope and 2x4 clog up the works? Who knows neither driver recalls anything bad happening. I was one of the two drivers. I just hope it still works after i remove it all.
