Worked on my rototiller tonight.  I'm going to be selling it this spring and I want to make sure it runs good for its next owner. 

I picked this up from my neighbor yard sale about 8 years ago.  Now that I have tiller for my cub 1811 this is just taking up space in the shop.  Besides, I could use the extra money!

The first thing I had to fix was the depth hook(??).  I don't have a torch so I put it on my 20 ton press from HF and straightened it out the best I could.

I then tried to start it.  No go!  I took out the carb and cleaned out the ports and blew everything out.  I found no corrosion in the bowl which made me happy! :D   I reinstalled the carb. and it fired right up.

I'll wash her down tomorrow and get her put on CL.

A press is a handy tool. Good looking tiller.

I bought one of the HF 20 T press about 10 years ago.  After I quit custom haying I wasn't using it but a couple times a year.  Neighbor was coming down and using it more than I was.  He has a much bigger shop with cement floor so I gave it to him with the condition I can use it when ever I need.  Works out good for both of us.

The press is very nice to have.  I originally bought it to press out wheel studs on my 99 Ram front rotors when they needed replacing.  The wheel studs attach the hub to the rotor.  It made the job so much easier.
