Got one I hope to list for sale soon. All you need then is a blower to put it on.

So we got this rough running Tehcumseh and today was a good day for tinkering on it. Of course, nothing seemed to help. Assuming it needed new gas and a carb clean, I thought I would try to run the old gas through with cleaner and additives in it. It would surge and die then nothing worked. Switched spark plugs with a known good one still nothing. Cracked open the gas cap thinking breather could be plugged. Really frustrating at this point. We had it running somewhat on Sat now nothing. Tonight I went out in the dimly lit shed, yup need more light bulbs again cause they dont last long when bumped, just to look at this aggravating machine. Hmm, stuck a screwdriver in the gas tank to check the level, and it came out DRY. NO wonder it wouldn't run right. I was sure there was a quarter tank when put away two days ago. I need to get a shutoff put on in case it's leaking somewhere.

Isn't the discharge out the side, and the inlet on the top (actually feeds into the front, from the top)?  I want the OEM one that mounts on the GTs.  I thought about retrofitting this.

I should have worded that better. The feed is about in the middle in height on the front and the discharge is above that on the side. This might be the one that had a bag setup with it.

Went through the manuals tonight. And that one was called a shredder-bagger. We have the one called a shredder-grinder.

It is definitely on the list of wants. But it has to wait until the shed empties out. There is no room to walk and to work on any thing means taking things outside.

Now Dad is thinking of taking the brush off the '69 since he can't get that running right and put it on the '73. Hopefully get to try this out soon.
