I just wanted to show everyone what I picked up today! My oldest daughter and I went for a little road trip (about 4 1/2 hours round trip with a few stops along the way).
First we went to pick up this engine.
It's a Tecumseh HH60 105079E. It runs great, but it's not the right engine for my Commando 6 It's the aluminum block, but it has the 3/4" crank shaft dia. as it came off of a tiller (Troy-bilt I think).
On the up side, less than 20 minutes away, I found this engine. And a whole lot more...
It's also an HH60, but its a 105047D. Still not the exact right engine for my Commando 6, but it's a lot closer. It's the right number, but the wrong series. This one has the cast iron block and came out of a Lawn Ranger I believe. As you can see, it's missing the carb, the air cleaner, the gas tank, and the gas tank mounting bracket. But I figure I can rob some of that off of the other engine if I can't find a replacement one elsewhere. Does anyone know what this piece is that's attached to the back of the engine shroud?
It looks like a set of resistors to me...or fuses maybe. I ran out of time to investigate too deeply.
Also, can anyone tell me if the coil set-up is original, and if so, should it be on the Commando 6? This one also has the electric start on it! Was that an option on the Commando 6?
I also scored this seat for $25 ...which is like new with just one tiny hole (about 1/8" in Dia.) in the side.
It's a perfect match for the one that's destroyed on the Commando!
As if that all wasn't enough, I also grabbed this set of front wheels with a like new set of tri-rib tires on them for $24! (The guy asked for $25, but all I had was $24 left and I told him I'd scrounge in the car to come up with the other $1, but he sad not to worry about it LOL!)
All in all, I think it was a great day! I scored some really nice stuff and got to spend the day with my 14, soon to be 15 year old daughter, an event that will probably be among the last of it's kind before she loses interest in Dad and his junk.
