Keith, thanks for the pics of your tractor and the info being discussed here. Thanks to everyone for their input, as this helps me to understand how these engines work, especially the smaller ones. Keep the discussion going. I need to start from the front and re read what all has been posted.

That is a beautiful job you did on the repower. By opening up the hood in such an attractive way you have assured that the engine gets lots of air and kept a very stock look overall.

Thanks guys, it has taken 2 years to get to this point and the old friend never missed a week of work in-between mods. This tractor has been fun and amazing ever since I rescued it from the scrap pile almost 2 years to the day ! Here's another shot of the other side, notice the fuel tank built into the fender :)
