The Little B lives!

Postby arlen » Sun Jun 06, 2021 1:04 am

Got it put back together and running today. It runs pretty good, but I may need to fiddle with the governor a little
I’m going to take a break from it for awhile then hammer the dents out of the sheet metal, and get that mounted.
No coolant leaks, and I have about 55-60 pounds of oil pressure.

Good to hear, Arlen! I’m sure you’ll get it fine tuned to your liking.

There’s no Pertronix for a magneto.

Got it purring like a kitten now! Hammered out the dents, and ready for raking hay.
