Bought this last year for 20 bucks it was sitting in the woods for the past 27 years.the hood had a cast iron door on top of it so it was Swiss cheese I made the top and sides and cut the luvers out of the old one. It had a 5hp briggs on it someone put on it. They had the original 10hp Tecumseh in the garage they said it was bad and had no spark. I fixed the solid state stator. It was a broken wire like always happens on those solid state systems.The engine was locked up. I put new rings and piston in it. New crank seals and shims.and new gaskets. And honed the cylinder.got a carb off Eric from pa. They also cut the grille bars out so I had to make a new bottom one. I also had to make the gas tank. I used two 5lb propane bottles I welded together.I also made the engine beauty covers on the frame I patterned Them off my other custom ten I kind of wish I did a better job on it because it came out so nice I want to keep it .I got it done to trade for an SS16 but the guy got rid of it.so I did it a little faster than normal. Sorry about the sideways pics and the grease prints from my hands on the inside of the hood. Have to go wipe them off. I literally just got it done.

20 for the tractor , 40 for paint, 20 for belt. 10 dollars in bolts I buy them by the lb. 50 in engine parts. I made the crank shims out of shim stock. Traded Eric a chainsaw for the carb. Maybe a few more dollars in misc stuff. I had tires and wheels. The engine cover tins I made so that was free. And so was the grille repair. And tank. I have alot of parts tractors back in the woods for odds and ends keyswitch selinoid stuff like that. 140 bucks or so

Still in PA? The Sears come up for sale here now and again, but honestly I'm plumb out of garage for now. I hate to leave them sit outside, they go to hell real quick that way.

Yes I live by ebensburg. I was driving from Grove city (not new Castle but close) to erie every day I was a diesel mechanic at 5star international. I lived right by Perkins in Grove city. My wife worked in indiana so we had to get something in the middle. 88 miles one way to work! I'm running out of garage too!

Tractor looks great. Did the carbs work out ok?

 

The grey saw was giving me problems.Couldn't get the carb adjusted correctly no matter what I did to it. I had a suspicion as to what was going on with it,so I pulled the bar and chain off and immediately seen the problem.Yep Blown crank seal.

 

You can tell pretty quick if it's blown.It will be very clean and wet after cutting a bit with it.Usually sawdust sticks to everything under the cover but it is super clean rite around the crank and wet with mixed gas.Pulled the muffler off and looked in the exhaust port.Piston has some scoring but not to bad.

 

I think I'm going to put the 2 ring piston and jug off of the parts saw on the grey one and order a set of crank seals. There cheap enough.Either that or see if I can find a good used block for the grey one. There's a couple on Ebay for around $20. Not sure which I'll do untill I pull the jug on the grey saw and check the crank bearings.  

 

After adjusting the carb on the red saw I put the 18" bar on it.It runs very strong and has very good throttle response.I'm very very happy with that saw.I use it a good bit.Nice light weight saw with plenty of power to cut up decent sized firewood and limb trees.I cut up a couple 6-8" locust trees today with it.Saw did awesome.

I put bushings in those lme carbs you give me . . The one that is on the tractor is funny because once I fixed the motor and I stuck the carb on I just started it on the bench. So Im not really even sure how it is going to run under load yet I didn't try it! Had two lme carbs before I got those ones from you,I had for parts but I miss placed them . Also what is that long emulsion tube for that was in that box there was two for the lme in the box one you cut the Grove in and one was the service nozzle.but there was a bigger one in there that looks the same but it's longer and fatter. It for the lmh? I thought they took the same one as the lme carbs .

That red saw is pretty snappy! That whole red part saw engine should fit in the gray one
