Little Update: My engine is good-as-dead to me. The coil is giving me nothing but problems. Which is a relatively cheap fix. But the expensive stuff is the stator. I'm not going to be driving my tractor around anywhere except my yard because of the coil. I found somebody on Facebook who is going to trade me an 18 hp Opposed Kohler. It's the Command-Series with pressure lube and electronic ignition. Guess what I'm going to be building out of that? Lol.

No new pictures. But I plan on getting the engine, making sure it runs, and then stripping it down to get rebuilt. If I do everything I want, I'll have a new cam, stronger rods/pistons, aluminum fly wheel, stronger valve springs, port and polish the intake, straight pipes. The whole 9 yards. I can't wait. Of course this is still the dreaming phase. I'll probably just tear it apart and clean it up a bit to say I did it. I might spend a few dollars on some rings and a gasket kit, too.

On a side note: does anybody ever wonder where the sayings we say come from? I mean, the whole 9 yards, I'd assume that to have a base in football somewhere, but I just can't think of it. Ah, Google is a wonderful thing. Nevermind. Wikipedia ruined my hopes. It is just something weird that happened.

That saying is from the Army Air Corp. Back in WWII the ammo belts on 50cal machine guns were 9 yards long. So when they let someone have it they said, "I gave 'em the whole nine yards." Meaning they emptied the gun at them.

Well that's interesting. I like to find stuff out like that. My chemistry teacher was talking to us about how the saying "Kick the Bucket" or "Bucket List" came to be. When people used to be hanged they would be standing on something, in this case a bucket, and they would 'kick' the bucket out from underneath you. So basically it's a "Before I Die" list. Which we all knew what it meant, just nobody could figure out where it came from. We meaning my chemistry class.

Just like Carshowkid said, I used AutoCAD. It's free if you get the 'Education' version. It's the full version, but when you go to print your drawings it leaves a watermark on the paper so others know you are using the Education version and have not bought it. Or you can hand out $4k and buy it. But I prefer the silly watermark.

Well I took my tractor out to my step dad's over in Weirsdale yesterday. Had a bunch of fun for about 15 minutes. Then my coil quit on me again. Mad It'll start back up today when I get home, though. I can't wait to get that new engine. Not only will it not quit running unless I run out of gas, but it also charges the battery! No more charging the battery after 12 starts. Lol. I'll also be able to put lights on my tractor.

Yeah. I've got a couple lollipops that are going on there when I can get the charging system worked out. One of them will be a hazard light. I'm not sure what I'm doing for headlights yet. I'm thinking of using 4 lights: 2 for high beams and 2 for low beams. That seems the easiest. I'll also be getting The Duck hopefully. I want to see if I can find him with LED lights. That would be sweet.

It's a hood ornament from the movie "Convoy". Real great movie. The movie was put out around 1976. It was during the trucker movement. Smokey and the Bandit pretty much overshadowed the movie, though.

Define cheap. Lol. They're like $175 for a nice casting of the original molds. The guy also sells castings that have problems with the finish (they're plated I think) for like $85. So I might be able to get a cheap one and get it stripped and plated, or however I want to get it finished. I'm not sure yet, though.

It probably would. I'm just going to watch eBay for a nice used one. As long as there aren't any cracks in the casting I'll be happy.

They're a bit longer than my hand, about as wide. I can take a picture of one when I get home. My dad has a black one on his Volvo.
