I'm happy for ya Doug, that you got it up and going.

It sounds good. Could you make up a manifold type of thing, and fit that

muffler out on one side or the other?

Kinda like this, but your muffler laying horizontal.

Been having trouble still trying to get this engine to run smooth and steady.

At Idle it's smooth but when you increase the throttle lever it's erratic. You can see the throttle on the carb move, vibrate when it's above idle.

If you hold the throttle with your fingers it's smooth and steady at all speeds.

 

I have noticed that some carbs have a spring warped around the throttle shaft that try's to close the throttle.

 

So I found a small low tension spring and attached it to the throttle and the engine shroud which try's to close the throttle same as the other type does.

Now it runs smooth and steady at all speeds, much better.

Shaft is fairly tight, you can see the throttle vibrate, open and close when running without the spring.

With the spring it stays steady, no movement until you move the lever on the dash.

I had this thing running today, hasn't been run for a long time but seems to run good.

I have a MF530 Dozer blade for it and maybe tomorrow I try to mount it and use it.

I got the blade on it it's a modified MF630, should be a MF530 but it fits and works.

As you can see the tractor is in need of some parts to finish it, hood, grill, foot board extensions and a muffler. The muffler on it is just so I can use the tractor, doesn't fit under the hood, need to make one as I can't find one.

This tractor I want to take to Plowday events, mainly Dans, "Ball Hollow Plowday".

It's runs OK, has gas in it that's 1-1/2yrs old, hopefully runs better with fresh gas.

I can tell you this for snowplowing it's got more pushing power and speed than my Massey 10s and 12's do. You can feel you on a heavier, faster machine.

I got good grill and hood and the proper exhaust fitting on the block, would like to keep the muffler under the hood like original was.

I know you would never do it, but just don't do anything like this.

That stuff makes me soooooo mad. :wallbanging:

Bend the grill, punch a hole in the screen, and mess

it all up in 5 minutes. Simple.
