Had the little Ford out this weekend. Hadn't been started in weeks so it was a grumpy thing for a little bit, but she finally came around after some driving around and a splash of fresh gas in the tank. Pretty much the only thing around here this time if year is mud,  so that's what we ended up playing in. lol!

Couple screenshots from a video I was trying to make:







Then I got a little rammy and slammed across a big rut at full speed, so I ended up breaking a steering rod:



Whoops, hahaha.

Had to play tow-truck with the GT and got 'er back to the barn to be fixed up.



I just cleaned up and welded the rod back together and it held up fine for the rest of the day.





I think I'd like to beef up the linkages some now that I've had it break on me, use some nicer rod ends and what not. I've also been thinking about a front skidplate to protect the steering linkage and suspension components. Maybe make the skidplate come up into a neat looking bumper even? We'll have to see, haha. I've got a few Ideas so hopefully I'll be able to make something happen!

I like the idea of a pre runner bumper or something like that but I would think it would be more practical as a skid plate if it was mounted to the suspension in some way that it moved with the flex. How do those little front tires manage in the mud? They look pretty small.

Yeah that's a neat idea, it might be slightly difficult being that it's an independent setup, but I might be able to make something work. The tires aren't too bad, just not fantastic for steering being that they're only turfs. I have front tires in mind that I'd like for it I just gotta find some, haha.

Haha, yeah I'm probably gonna edit some clips together to make a 10 minute or so video. It definitely was fun!

Well lately I've been having a bit of what I thought were electrical troubles with the little Ford, where the starter never wanted to spin the engine over without a boost, even if the battery had a good full charge. I had been checking the whole wiring system, all the connections on the solenoid, all the safety switches, etc. All checked out....



I was messing around with it today, and found out the engine itself doesn't want to turn over! The only way I could get it to turn was by putting a breaker bar on the flywheel nut and really cranking on it, which is obviously not good... I'm not really sure what is causing that. I had the clutch locked in, there's nothing stopping the pulley underneath, nothing caught in the flywheel, the starter's not caught in the ring gear, and the oil level is fine. Doesn't really make sense..... anyone have any ideas?

Still do it with plugs out?  Any chance any rodents or bugs could have gotten in there up the exhaust?  I had a dirt dobber go up the pipe on one of my Sears.  Compressing garbage is hard.

Sticky valve? Hope nothing worse.

Hmm, I actually didn't think to try it with the plugs out. Might as well try that tomorrow.

Yeah I suppose something could be jamming it up underneath the flywheel. Maybe I'll see if it wants to pop off easy sometime.

Oh, I did pull the plugs today and try to turn it over which, unfortunately, made no difference. Figures, haha. Also just so you fellas know how stiff exactly it is; I installed a pull start pulley on it the other day, (since I hadn't noticed the stiffness yet) and if I stand on one side of the tractor and try to pull it over with the rope, I can just barely pick the wheels off the ground on the other side. Yikes Can't turn it by the drive pulley either...

I'll mess with it at some point, I'd like to know what the heck is up.

Does it make any weird squeaky noises when you get it to turn? That would point to a seize. I had one oppy do it. It didn't actually lock up til i was turning it over. I sprayed oil into the cylinders and gave the flywheel a bit of a turn and she loosened back up pretty easily. She hasn't locked up since but does burn a bit of oil.

It does make a bit of a noise when I turn it that sounds like it's coming from inside the cylinder. The upper one too, so I wonder if that cylinder was starved of oil or something.

Really though this engine is pretty tired, it has been burning quite a bit of oil for some time now and seems to be really easy to stall. I was actually thinking that if I could figure out the issue with my 16hp pressure lube opposed, it would be a good replacement for this engine.

Yep! Always good to have a couple, haha. The carb, intake manifold, governor linkage, heads, muffler, etc. are all good, so it might be pretty handy
