Looks like a little bit of cleaning there too!  Can't wait for the upgrades! Danceparty

Thanks. Yeah she needs a good cleanup for sure. Got a nice oil and dirt combo going on, haha.

Haha, yeah that's one thing for sure.

Anyhow, I thought I'd post an update of the goings on with the pressure lube oppy.

Got it part way torn down and removed the valves, rods, and pistons:

Lapped the valves into the seats, they didn't turn out too bad. Then I had to grind the stems a bit to get the clearances within spec.

Picture of my sweet homemade spring compressor in action:

Hahaha.

One thing I found was some real rough looking rod bearing surfaces, which is quite odd:

The crank journals have some streaks but no marks or anything:

Not sure why the rods are like that, almost looks like oil starvation or something. Pretty rough looking, but there aren't any real bad grooves or any missing material, so I'm gonna clean them up with some 800 and 1000 grit. Should be able to smooth em' out again without wrecking the clearances. I'm gonna polish up the crank journals as well.

More updates to come!

Rod bearings do look a little scorched. Not so bad that you couldn't re-send it again it looks like?

The rod bearing surface, how ruff they are, looks old to me. I would suggest to remount the caps, and use the finest grit sandpaper you got without oil first, and rub the bearing surface once or twice. To see if there are any high spots. Don't worry about the low spots because they fill with oil and become level with the rest of the surface that is in good condition. Chances are, there are no high spots because they wore down already on the crank, and would be better off to leave alone. Which explains the crank's rod journal marks. But definitely polish the crank rod journals with the shoe lace trick.

Yeah I was gonna try the shoelace trick with my 1000 grit sandpaper on the crank journals, shouldn't take much as there aren't any actual marks on the crank.

I think the rod bearings will clean up easy enough, I'll see how that goes next week hopefully.

Doesnt look much worse than my 20hp. I took some worn out strip of sand paper... it doesnt really take any material off, but it polishes pretty well... I put that to my 20hp crank.

Some racing mower forum, they talk about opening up the hole in the crank for the oil, and chamfering the opening to let oil in there easier. I believe they also put a hole in the cap aswell.

They said the upper rods would tend to starve for oil in racing applications.

Maybe someday Ill get that 20 back together and see if I wrecked it or not. MTD off-road build (Mobile Terrain Dominator) "2" - Page 18 1098998679

Haha, yeah I remember that engine. Don't forget you're supposed to do a horizontal conversion on that one!!

Yeah I've seen a few different oil mods done on these to help the rod bearings, probably works pretty good. This engine should be fine though since it's a pressure lube model. It delivers oil right to the rods through the crank.

Yessir, getting pretty high tech!

I'll be waiting for that conversion to be finished, haha.
