Relocating intake (In progress):

What i'm going to do for it is weld a bushing to the outlet of the carb and and another to the air filter and run a rubber hose.


Difference between old front tires and new:

Took it out for a ride in the fresh snow yesterday even though the belt that's on it is a few inches too long.

Another thing added to the list of stuff I need: New piston rings. That breather should not be throwing out that much.



Other than that, had a fun time whipping it around in front of my garage, will put chains on tomorrow.

It probably doesnt have a replaceable breather assembly? If it does, id replace that first , another thing to try is some PB blaster in the combustion chamber to see if its just a sticky ring or two - the PB will free up a sticky ring.

Easier then tearing into the motor if it works.

The breather is replaceable and it's only a $20 fix for rings. And i've had about 4 of these tractors with the same motor so I know all their problems.

In other news I got the tire chains on!
With a little modification...

But finally, on.

It needs a new battery so I have to start it off a charger each time.

Ok, new plan! Considering the age of the engine (Was built in 1969 and still has all original parts) I shall be doing a complete rebuild instead of just rings. Exciting, yes? Also, on top of that I am going to be tearing down the frame completely and re-painting. So far my choices are pink and white or pink and black. Imagine the parts that are currently painted orange (minus the engine) pink and the rest white or black.

Last I checked oil isnt supposed to be grey. Gross. And is that water in the head?

I like that body design more and more, its so unique. The way it splits in half is pretty cool.

Yup, that's why the oil was colored too. It's ok though, I'm doing a complete rebuild with brand new parts. Well, not brand new. But newer.
