So as some of you know been battling a pretty crazy infection thing whatever, doctors don't know what it is or apparently diagnose it >.> so I haven't been doing much. Returned to work a bit ago and current wait to see the doc is a month from now and to see the lung specialist is something along the lines of two :/

Anyway I bought a Sears suburban to "replace the Massey" it's a 70s st16 if I remember right, has a Tecumseh oh160 and I am ever so slowly returning it to working order.
The engine has/d a few parts missing, carb was loose no air cleaner governor cable is missing blah blah blah. I ordered the air cleaner assembly today so that will be fixed and eventually everything else.

I am hoping to keep it relatively stock repaint it and just use it to work around the yard but that's how the Massey started and we all know what kinda monster that turned out to be.

I'll have pics up soon just have to get on the pc

Update on this baby too! After getting a replacement air cleaner assembly and a new fuel pump and tinkering for a couple days she lives! And smokes a lot -.- I'm having a problem with smokers lately first the dozer then this thing... I really want to keep the brick of a cast iron motor so I may invest in a overhaul kit and rebuild it. Tranny sounds good and will be staying unlocked for a while. If I pull with it I'll be weighted good so no worries there and she won't be missing like the Massey any time soon strictly work tractor!

Some new rings, hone up the cylinder a bit, and some 40w valvoline racing oil.... Anyway a little smoke gives you something to look at, as long as your not fouling plugs all the time.
