I've been working on the Loboy still, but not finished... :(

I had an issue with the front headlight retainer with rusted and broken studs. Thought about throwing it away and getting another from Hamilton Bob, but took a stab at a repair first. I didn't take and before pics, but these are the results:
I took my Dremel and cut the broken stud from the plate flush with the risers (red arrow). Then a center punch and drilled all the way through the plate. Tapped to 10-24. Picked up a piece of all thread from Lowes and cut it into four equal pieces and JB welded it in place with jam nuts to add reinforcement and keep things tight.
Image
With the JB weld in the threads and a bit on the end of the all thread, I ended up with a bit protruding from the front side.
Image
Sanded it down smooth with the front. There is a decal that covers the entire front light housing, so perfection wasn't key.
Image
This is what I ended up with. The threads are still a bit long, but nothing a Dremel can't fix. All total, I've got about $2 in the parts and about 30 minutes of time. Picked up new wing nuts as well for the light retainers. Just waiting on my yellow paint!! :D

Looking good so far. Great job.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Well, I blew my original timeline just a bit... :shock: I'm back on track now, just waiting on a couple of things to wrap this up!!
Got the engine running, great oil pressure, no strange noises, so I should be good to go on that end. I'm a little further along than the photos show, but still a ways from being finished!!
Ordering decals and dash plate tomorrow from C&G, just wish they offered the correct one for this SN 154, but I guess beggars can't be choosers.

Special thanks to HamiltonBob, everything I've ordered from him and his crew (and I've ordered a lot!! ) has been top notch!!

Looks great Raymond. I was wondering how you were coming along with your 154.

Raymond, you got it going on. Everything looks super clean and ready to go back together. Good thing you got a good memory. Great work.

Hello, Very nice work...enjoyed the pictures. I am just starting a 185 rebuild myself. Close to getting the block out...already pulled the number 3 piston because of a visible score mark. My engine sat for 30 years unused. There was an enourmous amount of carbon in the combustion chambers, valves, manifold, etc. Is this common...I also have the Zenith carb #13781 that says bendix on the front. My Muffler is also stuck in the manifold....thanks for the tip on getting it out. Now for the big question. Do you have a source for an origional style muffler to replace the one you just cut off? I would really like to replace mine also but can't find one anywhere.
