Yesterday I started my penny’s and the bolts that hold the pull start assembly on the shroud rattled loose and made terrible noises of the bolts hitting the flywheel fins. Re tightened them. They should hold. I hope...
Then the fuel line twisted in half when I was taking off the shroud. Got 4 feet of replacement line, cut it to right size, and replaced the line. The old line had cracks in it and was letting air in the line. Once replaced I started it up and it ran really good surprisingly. No more misfires and stalls, then coming back on. Did really good.
Also put some electrical tape over a chewed part of the coil wire that had no insulation.
The throttle/choke lever broke where the cable sits and will need a way to attach the cable to the tab. I will buy some JB weld and “weld” it to the other side of the tab. I also will put a teeny tiny dab of it on the 4 bolts that rattled loose before. Just so they will be good and tight.
I gotta get used to this tractor. Vibrates a lot! I’m used to a fancy quiet comfortable tractor. It scares the #### outta me when it’s super nice and silent outside and I give her a pull and it’s so loud! Next Tuesday I will apply the JB weld on the pull start assembly bolts and on the cable. Yesterday I applied a small amount of sea foam to the gas and I will be waiting to run it through on Tuesday. Over this thanksgiving I may be able to do it if I have time.
I recently bought a motorized bicycle kit and I’ve assembled the engine and carb. Now it’s just to get the bike, assemble the sprocket, and chain and tensioner. And of course put the motor on...
Thanks for reading!
