Friday was for mowing, Saturday was for building the Chicken Tractor, Sunday I finally got to work on BOH. Detailed dermal sanding, cleaning with Simple Green and finally coats of paint. Need to let the enamel harden before I start assembly.

Dermal sanding?
That's sounds like someone got their fingers where they shouldn't be... :bigrofl:
Damn auto correct

Anyways, glad you got some time un the garage.
Whopping 10 min for me because of a neighbor stopping in, but its good to see friends too.

Anyways, looks good Larry. Very good.

Ok, I went to HF and got a tap and Die set. My attempt to drill out the four booster fan screws failed miserably, so I JB welded the awful holes and will (carefully) drill and tap the blank spots. Main issue was the drill bit wouldn't stay centered on the steel screw and wanted to take the easy route through the aluminum. I ended up with an oblong hole with screw fragment's still in there. I think tapping the unused ones will be the best. This thing is still available but $96.00 + shipping.

Booster fan has been repaired and touched back up. Next up is the starter, like I expected it is almost new. Paint is drying so assemble will happen tomorrow.

Tractor funds have taken a hit this Month, I have to have the passenger axle replaced in my 95 Camry. I could do this my self, but opting for a shop to do it. I have enough already purchased to keep the BOH project going. Starter is done, Heads are installed and torqued., working on the valve covers. Should start looking like an engine this weekend.

Damn, reality strikes again.

Expecting a Christmas card from my mechanic this year.


Glad you got the fan fixed!

Luckily on the fan there were 4 additional points I could tap, and filled up the ones I cut the screws off of. The new tap & die set worked great!

I got a tap and die set a couple of weeks ago. I chased all the thread on the engine before I put it back together. I got to send a picture of what I'm picking up for my niece's birthday I'm more excited about it than her.

I could of missed this but I was sure all the tins were mounted properly. I have determined he has an after market starter, and while trying to put the tins on the starter side they don't fit. The small shroud bottom tab doesn't go in far enough to attach to the outside tin. The back of the starter is preventing it by about 3/4 inch. I looked at the manual and the starter seems to be mounted correctly. I'll look at this again in the morning, but I am thinking I'll need to trim the small shroud tin to make it fit.

I think I found the issue, measured the starter on Hulk II's spare engine. looks like I need to trim the tin some, the Original Starter is around 5-3/4" and the After market is 6-1/2". Surprised I didn't notice the tins weren't mounted properly during teardown. I'll just snip and bend the shroud to make it fit this starter, and it can be reversed if needed.

Tin is trimmed / bent and fits now. I'll have to round off the sharp edge and touch up the paint, but it fits proper now.

Made some progress, but it was such a nice day we played with the Sky Vipers, watched the cats stalk, and mainly goofed off.

Working on carb cleaning, and will work on the PTO some tomorrow.
