I told him I would bring a condenser for the mag on the Wisconsin, and we could mess around with it while it rains AGAIN, as the Tractor is at his place right now.
Before scootin out there where the Gibson is, I stopped at Orielly Auto for a Condenser. Picked one up that is for a 1955 Chebby V8.
Got the Engine mag apart, and reworked the original bracket to fit the new part, and voila, she got a nice bright blue spark!
Bolted the mag back on, tossed in oil mix gas in the bore, tossed in some Ethenol FREE go-juice, and she started on the 3rd pull!!
Buddy suggested we put the Wisconsin on the Gibson, and I agreed.
He was cramped for time, so we worked as fast as we could, and got it 95% done. I just need to reconnect the trottle cable, but she drives.
Unfortunately, I didn't get any pics of the swap procedure, as I was rushed with his schedule, but the end result was grand.
Boy, the Wisconsin runs good, and I can't believe how clean the tank was inside, and I didn't even have to pull the carb apart!!!!
Lil vid, a before, and after shot...
Sorry the vid went sideways at the end, but I wasn't the camera operator;)
