    Thanks Kraig.

    Wow! You guys don't have much good news. Hmmm. Will ignore the front axle, work on the rest, and start looking. Was the front axle the same for the QLS? 1250 - 1650?

    The big chunks got smaller today. And the underside of the front axle sure has taken a beating at some point in the past.

    Hi from Idaho.

    Welcome from a fellow Idahoan! I'm currently working on a 1650. Got mine from my cousin. It also came with a snowplow, tiller and mower deck. Jealous on the sickle bar. Soon as I'm done with morning coffee I will be back to work on it.

    Thanks @mfrade...Good thing I ordered a new crimper last week then! Should be here in the next few days. That's why I come here. I'm assuming I know very little and the consensus on this forum is the way to proceed.

    All good thoughts. Thanks guys. Going to de-pin the main switch receptacle (the new one) and do that all over. I've been consistently using heavy wire throughout. Like to over-build. :). The main wire from the battery to the solenoid and from the solenoid to the starter I've replaced with...

    Also thought some of you might get a kick out of this pic! Initially noticed the governor spring was wore but forgot about it when I was cleaning and painting parts. So the old one got all spiffed up. At assembly I realized there was not much left to work with! Hole and spring about wore...

    Working on making a new wiring harness. Decided to make my own as it will be less expensive and I enjoy soldering and doing such things. I am using all new wire, soldered and crimped connections, etc. Here is a pic showing how nasty the receptacle was for the main switch. But also, just...

    Bald Faced Hornets in Front Yard Tree

    I worked 15 years as a logger, most of that as a timber faller. This time of year we would be stung daily from bees nesting in the ground and big paper nests like that. We would start at first light so we could get our work day in before it got too hot. I remember walking in to a strip...

    Por 15

    Will be able to tell you in a few years. :) Just used Por15 on the engine, (block and metal) on my 1650 project. I followed the full process and followed up with flat black enamel (non Por15 product) on top. Impressed with the product so far and everything seemed to bond well...but time will...

    Any ideas on reattaching a serial number sticker? It and the model number sticker were coming loose on the blower housing. I masked them off when I repainted the housing and in the process of pulling the masking tape off the serial number sticker came completely off. Here's a pic of how tough...

    Unexpectedly my son pased away.

    So sorry. I would like to say that time heals all wounds but we all know that's not true. We just live on with our wounds. After my dad passed away I now measure the years by WD (with dad) and AD (after dad)...it's now 5 AD. Hang in there for the others.

    Slow but sure. Machinist doesn't use tanks anymore. Said he got tired of using gloves, fumes and all the rest. He uses something like a commercial dishwasher now. Lots of heat, steam, etc. Said he would squeeze me in if I would bring all my parts when I came to get the crankshaft...and I...

    I mic'ed it for out of round and taper and everything looked really good. I like the tanking idea. Problem is he is really backed up...months out on any significant stuff. Thought he could get my balance plate installed between jobs in 3 weeks or maybe less. He's highly recommended but...

    1977, 1650 project

    It's been awhile. Figured I better post an update or you guys will think I kicked the bucket, or gave up. With all the heat out here in the west, I can only work in my shop for 5 or 6 hours in the morning before the heat drives me out. Number of fires all around, so the air is thick with...

    Stevenovick1: :) I think we all had an Ava! Kind of a crush, but with a healthy dose of fear...since she could have kicked our butt at anytime. :) Greg: Wasn't running when I got it and as I mentioned when I got the hood and heat shield off it was easy to see why, looking at the wiring...

    Ammeter ?

    You were right Greg...this sounds like the same issues I noticed in my 1650 project. Melted connector, heat discolored terminals, and I noticed my cousin had put in a new ammeter. Haven't talked to him about it yet, but looks like he was chasing some of the same issues you are experiencing...

    I agree about the piston. I'm going to clean the cylinder before I bore gauge it. I'm going to try and measure the cylinder and crank up myself. If I see anything slightly wonky I will then probably find a shop.

    Thanks again everyone! Great stuff. jkoenig, Greg Riutzel and RayF, thanks for the carbon cleaning tips. I was thinking of green Scotchbrite scrubbers and some 10-40, first. But those are great low impact ideas. Never thought of the wooden dowel idea. Always interesting to me how people...
