I bought a MF12G the other day that seems to be in the same condition. It seems that if there was a fastener, the PPO took it off. I actually bought it from a friend who had picked it up at an auction. I think it was more project than he was looking for,and it really wasn't gonna suit his needs, so I was able to buy it from him.
I wish I had remembered to take a pic of the engine before I put on the head, CDI, generator, Flywheel,starter, Carb, etc. (It'll all come back off, the used head gasket probably wont seal up, just using it for a test run and the carb etc needs a cleaning). The engine does run and sounds throaty. Little smoke, but it's been sitting for a while, gonna try to free the rings up by soaking.
Anyways, here's my "exoskeleton" (as Ryan calls it)
The engine just after she ran for a couple seconds before I put the carb back together & on.
and a couple of Mystery pieces that were tied together in the box-o-parts. One is a switch with an actuator handle? Any ideas?
