Hot damn, the thing actually works!
I took it out for a test drive a little bit ago and it runs and functions perfectly. There are still a couple of things to do yet, I have to wire in a Kill Switch and I see the hood is rubbing on the muffler and the edge of the gas tank. A couple of smacks with a Medium Persuader should take care of that little issue in a big hurry.
Here she is fellers, she got there under her own power.
I sent some pictures to my Brother and he texted me back that his Girl Friend, who’s Father owned this thing, was absolutely thrilled to to see it going again. She said she knew it was going to a good home and that her Father would have been just as tickled as I am to see it working again.
Even the Grouchy Old Bastard across the street was impressed and that ain’t easy to do.
Of course, I have no idea what I am going to do with it now but that’s beside the point.
I even got the discs loosened up and rolling again on that attachment. I also see that the Sickle Mower is fucked up so that will be on the menu soon.
