I'm in Michigan 48045
I picked up a Bolens G-14 four speed at auction 8/3. .OH 140 1600270D ser#3018E
Will post pix as soon as I figure out how.
It came with a mowing deck, snow blower, tiller and all the items to drive the afore mentioned attachments
It was ALWAYS barn keep along with the attachments......Original tires, no dry rot, no checking or cracks.... No caked on dirt anywhere..... No dents..... No bent tiller parts.....No damage to the snow blower...... A small fracture to the mower deck (easy weld job) All drive accouterments included. Extra belts, spare air cleaner. (check the soon to come pix)
Smokes a bit on start up.. ZERO rust anywhere, soon to be posted pix will reinforce that statement.
Changed oil, purged old gas, changed fuel filter and spark plug.
OH140 Tecumseh..OH 140 1600270D ser#3018E
Starts instantly BUT............ it acts like it's got a heart murmur............. it runs wonderfully for 50 or 60 seconds............ then momentarily shudders, stutters, pukes out a puff of smoke, then gets right back to business. I'm running straight TURBO BLUE high octane fuel in it now so as to hopefully bust off the carbon I saw on the piston when I installed the new plug
After the pix post, please reread this post and offer any comments.
