I was outside doing some yard work and heard voices.  It was my 2 newsest acquisitions calling for attention.  I had brought home a Bolens 1000 with a 14 hp kohler in it and a sears suburban 10 in mid April.  At that point I had pulled the plugs squirted in a bit of diesel put the plugs back in and parked them in the tent.  I knew both the engines were not stuck as I had turned them a wee bit by hand.  I had to know more.  Went down with the Bolens 1050 to serve booster duty a few tools and squirt can of gas mix.

 

Good news is they both turn over with thier starters and seem to have compression and no bad noises.  However they do not seem to have spark.   I knew they would not run on thier own as fuel tanks are cruddy.  But by squirting gas into the carb I was hoping at least one would fire.  

 

Next time they call me I will drag them up to the shop and spend some real time on them.  Plus side I'm pretty certian they will both run with some TLC.

It has a 14 hp Kohler Muffler tail pipe has holes drilled into the sides the end capped off.  Its a custom part for sure.  LOL
