Great save.  I have seen a lot worse in my shop I thought I did a good deed on.  Why put carpet under the oil pan to drain oil ? ? ?

what's wrong with it

 

Well, I don't know what the original owner thought was wrong, but I found badly burned points.

so I replaced points and condenser.  When I had fire , I pulled the carb out and it was flat awful.

Took the carb apart and soaked it for a couple days, then put a Kohler carb kit in it.

 

Started right up. I can only guess the original owner left it sit because of the no fire problem,

the gas in the carb varnished up, and he gave up.  Off to the scrap yard.

Nah, it aint leaking. After I did the electric and carb work , I changed the oil. I never try to

start up a project with old oil.

Wow, you looked at that picture real close!  The carpet is supposed to be by my work bench to

cushion my feet.  But it got kicked to the center of my shop, and I was just to lazy to move it when

I was draining oil from the 917H !

Man, that was a good score! Imagine what we don't see that does end up shredded and pressed into a neat little square.
