Had some time this morning, so I pressed in the new bushings on the painted side. If I have time this afternoon, I'll put some paint on the other side. Hope to be working on the back tires before the weekend!

Well, due to lack of time and 100% humidity, i did not get any paint on the wheels!

Rain was headed in, so I fired up the wood stove and got the other side of the wheels coated this morning. :dancingbanana: I'll let the set for 24 hrs. at least before I put the other new bushings in. Now I can get these on there soon and pull the back ones off to work on.

Got both the front wheels on today and pulled the rears. Got smart this time and cut the old tires off the wheels. I think one had a bunch of Slime in it at one time. But a good cleaning with the wire wheel took care of that mess!

Looking Good - that wire brush must be taking a beating?

Probably have to get another one before long! Hope to have the LK rolling by Saturday! Looked in the gas tank and need a bunch of shot to clean that out!

If you had a barbecue rotisserie and some sand blasting sand (or other media) you could fill the tank about 1/2 full and wire the tank to the rotisserie and let it tumble for several hours to clean the insides up - just a suggestion.

I think the tank is spot welded to the flywheel shroud! :mad2: :wallbanging: :(

:mad2:     May not be room on the barbecue rotisserie then -  you could wire it to a cement mixer if you have one - it should fit inside it with the shroud,  You could wire the tank and shroud to one of the fins and then prop the handle in the emptying position so that the tank is horizontal when the mixer is rotating - may not have to let it tumble as long as the cement mixer will turn a little faster.

Got out early this morning and mounted the tires on the rear rims. Here's my setup for doing that.

Took the flywheel shroud off the engine and found the fuel tank is bolted on.

Looks like a better tank is needed! A little shaking to remove some debris and a BIG hole opened up.

Even the fuel fitting is plugged.

Here's the engine #'s.

Model    V60-70093E

Serial  6318    10359

If anyone has a usable fuel tank, PM me.

Too bad about the fuel tank but better to find the holes now rather than after you cleaned it all up.

It's a roller now! Time to concentrate on getting it running. I have some fuel tanks I can use for temporary's, but a permanent one would be nice.

Since it rolls rather easily, I brought it closer to the shop so I could pull the flywheel and look under there. The flywheel is set up for a electric starter, kind of cool. See pic in previous posts. Upon getting the flywheel off, here's how things looked.

The magneto wire and the condenser wires had no connectors on them, just stripped and wrapped around the stud. I fixed that! I assume the connector not used is for the kill wire? Not anything at the throttle plate either.

Here's what I have done.
