I am sick as a dog, so I haven't taken any pics. These are what he sent me. It is rusty, and crusty but it has potential

I will take pics tomorrow with all the books I got with it

If you are sick, stay in bed. Stay warm. Take a long hot shower. Drink hot soup. Take care of yourself so that you don't get worse. Staying real warm will help you get better faster. That kool new treasure can wait a few more days.

 

Right now its -2* here with a windchill of -24*. I am not going outside for atleast 2 more days. I went through a brief fever and chills spell this morning and spent the day in bed. Now I feel okay but can't get to sleep. Good Luck, Rick

I shouldn't but I had to. Guy said no spark so I slapped a new battery in it and has great spark. Got it to pop with some gas. Pulled the head, perfect bore but piston is worn. I will do a hone, piston, rings and rod.

Both cables need to be replaced, for throttle and choke. Need belt cover, I hope to have this as my personal mower for the summer. Use my others for my side business.

I think I will put a 8hp on it temporarily till I get the 7 done up. I will get better tires on front and start the pb blasting and lubrication process.
