Ok guys I just couldn't help myself. I freed up the stuck valve in the k91t and the seats looked good and the cylinder wall looked perfect! So I put it back together, changed the oil and added a bit of Lucas to it. It had good spark and I got all the out of the carburetor. I put the engine back on the tractor and put gas in the tank (after I cleaned it out) and believe it or not the tractor fired up on the second pull!! Smoked a little at first and then nothing! Ran it around for an hour or so until the spark plug that was in it fouled. Put a new one in and kept going! Next I need to fix the recoil but overall it worked great!

so what are the future plans are going to restore it? almost looks like you could pressure wash it and straighten the hood out a little and have nice original. glad you got it running. my 854 had the same issue when I got it a stuck exhaust valve.

I need to find an original gas tank for it so I can fix the nasty cuts on the top of the hood. As of now it has a briggs tank on it. This year I think it is going to shows as is, but I will give it a good pressure washing.
