that feeling is sooooo sweet isnt it... almost like a drug.. you want more of it...
looking good for sure...
and its next morning time of this post.. hahhaha
hows she running ?? come on now ... tell us ..
Actually I've been mowing. I did however get the starter and gas tank back on. When I tried starting it it cranked over and sounded like it wanted to start and then I saw I big flame shoot out the carb...any suggestions?
Open the points up some if you need the knock back. Flat heads are fussy about timing . Most of mine are knock free with less than 0.020" of point gap. I would run it above idle so as to splash all your new parts well.
lil hint.. grab one of them stamped alum pans from dollar store.. so its nice and clean..
after about hour of run time.. drain oil.. u might see some silver in oil . but you know eyeball it if good toss oil put new in.. its a way to keep eye on if its goin to go or not sooner then later. i myself do 3 oil changes more time between each. hour on 1st .. 4 to 6 on 2nd and depending on what iam doing tilling or mowing or plowing on the 3rd and then normal from there. just me tho ..
but awsome to hear u got it.. now a video lol .. so we all can get our fix on lol
Yes but that rod came off that crank,and that motor ran (with a bad knock). All I can figure is that whoever rebuilt that other motor never torqued it to specs,just tightened it enough so it would rotate,that's all I can think of.
While putting shields and guards back on look what I came across which has to be slid over the hydro shaft before the motor goes back in...ugh!#! I'm the same guy who put his grill back on only to take it back off because I didn't put the pto link on first LOL!!!
