I had one aluminum nose piece cast and made the rest of the hood on my first GW machine. I'll try again on pictures, when I get home from work. I watched the video, it doesn't look hard.

That JS is in nice shape! The old cast iron Briggs engines do idle right down like you said. Thanks for posting the pic! My JS was a real mess when I picked it up. I planned on rebuilding the original engine, but I came across a 1955 Briggs model 23 hooked up to a belt driven generator. I also found a Briggs 233300 series engine with the same cast iron gear reduction unit on it that's in great shape. I'll be using the model 23 block along with this gear reduction unit and an NOS crank, rod, and .010 piston for the rebuild. It takes time to gather needed parts for these old machines, but well worth it in my opinion.

Thanks MGP59DB for the picture help, I'm still learning. Yes, Classic, it has been my longstanding opinion that they were worth it. It'll be nice when it is done. I'll try and post more pictures.

Pics need to be in .jpg or .jpeg format.
