All this talk about the engine got me thinking...

When I tore down the tractor, the engine was the last thing that I removed after everything else was stripped. Now I've reassembled almost everything and the engine is still sitting on a bench. I'm usually very disciplined about following the disassembly process in reverse when putting something back together.

Today, I decided that I should see if I'll be able to reinstall the engine at a later date if I continue on my current path of reassembly.

I didn't install the motor plate, but I still had adequate space to get it in without any assistance. If I had removed the spark plug or the starter, I think it would have slid right in there.

For the lateral slop, I found a couple .375" spacers that fit very well.

I polished up the shaft, chamfered the ends with a file, and put it all together.

Muy bueno!


Are you planning on putting a deck under it? If so does the horizontal slop need to be there to get the deck hooked up?

I'm sure you checked that as detail oriented as you are. Beyond impressed with your work!

I am planning to run a deck under it and you might be correct. The deck hangs from a couple chains so I suspect there's already some allowance for side to side motion in there, but I have to admit that I didn't really scrutinize it too closely during disassembly. If it does turn out to be too tight a fit, I suppose I can remove the plastic spacers pretty easily. I installed hitch pin clips all over the place so it should disassemble in minutes if I need to fine tune my ideas.

your machine is too nice to run deck! your doing one heck of job on it. I see your other hobbies with the bikes, cars etc. I did the same, I still have one of my mustangs and being 100% honest these panzers and other garden tractors I have more fun with restoring and cruising around with the kids.

I had no problem finding valves, piston, rod, rings, points, etc. for my engine.

The only thing I had a problem with was that complete gasket set with the oil seals.

HAPPY EASTER!!

Family dinner at 1:00 today. Am I the only guy who cleans his garage whenever company is coming? I hate the idea of people seeing a messy shop.

WTF? Are you an actual machinist? You should be giving me all sorts of tips and information. I'm over here winging it like a chimp and you know how to actually make chips. I'm not sure what that is a picture of, but it sure puts all of my crappy brackets to shame.
