I power washed a bunch of frame parts, and split the frame in prep for sanding and paint. Went to pick up the paint and they were out of Gloss Black, but I was able to pick up 10 cans of Grey. I guessitamate it will take close to 16 cans of Grey and 10 cans of black, 2 cans of silver, and 1 can of black hi-temp.

Quick update, I was able to get the transaxle to shift into Lo Range, and I filled the holes in the dash that the PO made. Still waiting on a shipment of Black paint.

Well I hope to get some more power washing done Saturday, and it looks to be too wet to mow Sunday. Hope that makes you feel better. :poke: Notice that I am not the only one that thinks 60's in February is considered "Cool".

Long day here, I power washed more parts and the transaxle. I ran into an issue with the fan screen screws, I drilled the heads off so to remove the booster fan, I'll drill it out using the bench drill press. The booster fan is NLA, and made of brittle aluminum. Slow and steady as she goes.

We went to a new place they opened here called Urban Air. Acres of trambolenes, Climbing areas, Dodge ball, and Ninja Warrior obstacle course. I got tired just watching. He had fun!

The fan booster is fine, I just have to carefully drill the screws out, I had to do this on one other. It is easier to use the drill press, that is why I drilled the screw heads off to remove the fan.

More engine teardown, I need to find my 1-1/4 socket tomorrow. The starter gear and magneto looks good, they were confirmed working properly with the initial start-up. Depending on parts availability I might go into the block and have it specked. I'll go on to Searspartsdirect tomorrow to build a shopping cart. 

I need these.

Gasket kit

Breather Tube

Front wheel seal caps

Spindle top seal caps

and some other things

Spent some time on Sears Parts this morning building a cart. I am at $114.00 minus shipping. Just trying to make sure I have everything I need, to open the block and check the internals. I'll need to build some funds up before I place the order, anyone think of anything else I should add?

 

1 ea. 495868 Gasket kit $59.33

1 ea. 691897 Breather Tube $14.10

1 ea. 121433X Amp Gauge $6.74

3 ea. 104757X Wheel hub caps $3.00 each. Red needs one also.

3 ea. 121232X Spindle caps $3.94 each. Red needs one also.

2 ea. 7393R Axle seals $3.00 each. With 3 transaxles I figure good to have on hand.

1 ea. 110542X Shifter boot $3.25, Not sure needed, but just in case.

 

 

Belts, Tires, bushings, bolts, and other items will be searched locally.

Steering bushings?

I looked, NLA. I'll look local for the brass bushings, and I have successfully used flashing tin for the thin nylon bushings.

I was expecting a fight here, pulling the flywheel. I found my 1-1/4 socket and removed the bolt, then threaded it back on 1ith a 1/2" clearance. Got out my HF "bent" puller and installed it. Three squeezes on the impact trigger and wala! popped right off.

I have the same puller set. Has done well for me.
