Came home from last weeks auction and all this was sitting in the yard. Buddy was doing a lil yard cleanup and made a donation. The trailer has 6 chainsaws, 4 gas Homelites and 2 electrics. His dad used to run the city dump so I suppose they are just dump finds but I'm OK with that. Yard sweeper has a hole in the bag but still works.
Crapsman has the optional two-piece crankshaft Intek. He had changed the engine a couple of times already and says he was done putting money into it. I told him when he bought it that was a mistake. Originally had a 26 horse [yeah right] now has a 20 horse. Nice looking tractor. The plastic hood doesn't even have any cracks.
Ex neighbor [now deceased] had one of those and I was always working on that junker. Finally told the neighbor I wasn't wasting any more time on it. Decent tractor, by todays standards, but the engines were total junk.
Thought about trying to find an different flavor engine for this one since the tractor is in such good shape but I'd still just have a modern Crapsman. It'll probably sit out back with weeds growing up around it.
