Nice sunny day today, little cool, but not bad. We are in shade trees and cooler there than if you walk around in sun. Sold B-80 Horse, sand blast cabinet, 3 8hp kohlers, some little trinket stuff. Oh, yeah, the little gas scooter I got there last year and never got running, a tiny 2 stroke chopper thing. My buddy sold a big black-top roller or maybe a lawn roller if not filled with water. He has a Heston articulated to sell yet and a SS16 Sears that runs and drives. $400 obo on the Sears. Heston, think was $600. I didn't get around too much, no body from here was found. I had hat on. Steve Guider of Case fame was there and another by us with much case stuff. Couple of cabs for them around. I did buy some Briggs engines, a 23 and a 24. The 24 was kinda diff and green like army stuff. Wondering if it could have been on army item? I have pix. Kinda dented up, bought mostly for the start/gen and mounts, which works, tried it on my batt pack. No compression, but the exhaust was blowing gunk out when cranking, so guess piston in it. Didn't think rod was connected when turning by hand at first. The other is all apart and never finished, but looks good in cylinder and think could run easy. Missed out on a go cart frame I was kinda thinking about. Mama said no more junk like that coming home. I see another guy bought it later and moved by his stuff, just down from us......durn! I resisted it in my new pledge to buy smarter. :smilewink: Going back in AM. Not as many pictures as I usually get. I tried taking and sending here, but takes forever for just ONE picture to load and send. Must be weak signal at meet. Not sure how to add them here w/out making posting seperate. Maybe with edit button?

Thanks for posting the pics! I really like the looks of the Mighty Mite, and I'm itching to get working on mine soon. That green Briggs could be from a military generator. I know they used ZZ and 23 engines on them, but I haven't seen one with a 24 yet. Does the 24 have a 2 groove pulley on the PTO shaft?
