Well, I finally had some time to put the Commando back together! It runs good and drives good. There is still some tweaking (or replacing) that I need to do with the governor. I had to use the carburetor and governor linkage off of a similar engine that came off of a tiller, and it just doesn't seem to be working the way that it should. But for now, it runs and drives! Here are some pics...

Looking good Steve. I think you need to get back to it and make it work just right. :D

Patience is the key to getting it right Casey. I'm not familiar enough with the setup to properly tune it. I will wait until I find the right person or information or both before I mess with it again. I have found that if I keep trying to "tweak" what I don't understand, it leads to frustration. Rest assured that It will be correct at some point.

Same reason I never touched the Case 444, it needs tweaked, and I really don't feel it. I do have an out to this issue, an offer from George to fix it up right, and I WILL be taking him up on that offer next trip I make his way. :D

Thanks for the complement! I think that if I find a plow for it, I may work it some, but for the most part, it will just be for show. If the condition deteriorates, I will have to do a restore on it. I like it the way that it is...in it's work clothes but mostly retired :D
