Looks a lot better! Need some decals now!

It's not a good enough paint job for decals :poke:

Well,  that lasted long :wallbanging:. It took me a while to get the engine running, there was a little water in the carb from the car wash, also the points and spark plug need cleaned. I was wanting to till a spot for some more corn and some cabbage. I got the old simplicity out there and started tilling, the engine started to sputter and started rolling out smoke. I knew the engine was getting weak and was smoking fairly decent anyway. Before I could get it back up to the house the old thing started running oil out the carb. I then quickly shut it off and I'm going to mess with pulling it up to the house later.

 

I'm guessing a ring broke, It's no huge surprise but I was hoping to get a little tilling done.
I have already priced rings at the local hardware/parts store last week, now I'm just waiting for funds to rebuild. :(
