First off I want to shout out to  Texas Deere and Horse For assisting me with my crank shaft service it was very awesome of you to offer to help me, a feel your a part of this success.

 

Took me a whole lot of parts fishing to get everything needed to get this thing running again. But I got it fired up for the 1st time yesterday and she purrs. I am surprised with all the assembly lube and oil that this thing didn't smoke out the neighborhood.

Now I just need to fine tune the carb and all finish assembling.

Good job.  I bet that is one loud puppy with straight pipes that short.

Get it idling right and slow and they'll think you have a Harley!

I fire it up before the rebuild with the straight pipes it was not as bad as I one would think. But this time I put the exhaust on before pushing it out of the garage and starting it. I  took take the exhaust off to diagnose the back firing issue I had before the rebuild then found it was only a 1 cyl onan. Its firing on both cylinders now!

I look forward to it, right now just doing the high idle for 10 minute things and getting it broke in, going to run it some more today change the oil, go over a few things and then start getting this tractor ready for duty. I didn't have but the end of yesterday to tinker with it because I been busy with work.

Here is one of just idling at a slightly increased idle, so far so good no popping though the exhaust and sputtering like it was doing.

 

Still would have been cheaper and easier to put in a Subaru  Robin EX40 engine in and it would have came with a warrantee....lol

Oh and a back up recoil starter, low oil shut off.....lol
