I replaced the fuel line from the pump to carb and I want to fire it one more time tomorrow to see if the pump now works, and hook my volt meter up to see if the charging system works. Once the preliminaries are out od the way, the tear down will commence this weekend. All of this is to see what I can expect for the restore. Lots of parts to order from Sears, but I want to make a list and get all I can at one time to minimize shipping costs.

Anyone know of a good adhesive to re-attach the nipple to the fuel pump. It came off while I was removing the old fuel line.

Sounded pretty good on the video.

I was surprised at how it sounded too. The crap that was blown out was from the shrouds, and there was only Black carbon / fuel smoke from the exhaust. I don't think I'll go into the crank case, but will clean and check and replace all the externals that need it.

Thanks for following!

Video? I didn't see a link to video. Mine still belches black smoke every time it's started. Been running strong though, starts first time every time, so living with it for a while.

I hooked the fuel pump up this evening and he started right up and ran smooth, The pump will need the outlet nipple re-soldered so I know it works but will need taken apart for the soldering. I'll order a rebuild kit just in case.

Good News, Good News, and not so good news. I bought a new key switch which fixed the no crank issue. The charging system works, I got over 13.1 volts and climbing. Hi-range all gears function, but nothing in Lo-range. It feels like the lever is not going all the way down. Hopefully only an adjustment issue.

A little more about the low range issue. I just can't get the lever to go all the way down. I don't see any thing blocking it. I guess I'll find out more when I drop the transaxle. Also trying my hand at dubbing voice into my videos.

I moved the battery back to Hulk II, Emptied the test gas tank, and used the last of my PB Blast. Shop really stinks right now, I have the door open and heater on to make it bearable. I need to pick up some more PB this weekend and clear a bench or two off.

If it anything like the old transaxle. Mine sometimes sticks and if put it in gear and then try again it will shift down in low.
