Thanks for the info, Bill. I'll get that checked out. These are the type of little details that I appreciate hearing about.

Just don't fill it and then stand it with the blades UP. You'll quickly discover that there is NO seal on the rear end of the hub/shaft!! :shock: :lol:

Check both manifolds and found the drain holes were plugged with rust. Got 'em drilled out and ran a pipe tap to clean up the threads. It got cold here so the painting is on hold for now.

Bought a pipe tap to clean up the threads in the manifold. We already had this old pipe threader to clean up the pipe.

FYI for you and any others who might be needing a large diameter tap, but not wanting to purchase one for a one-time use. Call your local rental store. They often have one that you can rent for use and not have to buy one. That's what I did for my Farmall AV some years ago.

I've been waiting for a little warmer weather so I could get the shop warmed up enough to paint. I was hoping for a 50°F+ day but today it got up to 43°F which is the warmest predicted for weeks and I needed to get this done. Loaded up the wood furnace and fired up the propane heater and got the shop up to 60°F. Mixed the paint and sprayed some red finally. I still have the fan assy, starter, and a few other small parts to spray.

Yes, it does. Now I need to get some shop space opened up enough to wedge the tractor in and start prepping for the engine swap.

My brother and grandson came bye and put a few more pieces on the cub engine. Installed the governor with new seal, manifold, water inlet and outlet, and the fan assy.

The mag was covered in some crud and a little corrosion, so I spent a little time cleaning it up. Its looks good enough for now.
