Hey man I missed some of this I have been bummed out allot lately with the covid nonsense, you are in a good spot though, you are a young young guy you have everything in front of you...

Both of my brothers suffer from depression, unfortunately one is no longer with us because it got that bad... Reach out to your friends and family, hell send me a PM if you feel like it... It doens't just go away but it is manageable.  I wish when I was 16 I was doing some of the cool stuff you are, but I cant change 25 years ago haha....My advice is to get back to any hobby you like, spend some time with family, write some stuff down maybe...Don't bottle up too much, I know as men we do that allot, but stay positive...  If you were closer id give you some tractors and make you fix them hhaha...
Thanks I really appreciate it.  I've had it for about a year, and I didn't do anything about it or tell anyone until late February, which I regret.  I'm really sorry about your brother.  It did get close to that bad a few times for me but obviously never did.  Thanks for the offer, and I will if I need to.  The fact of the matter and what I've been told by counselors the reason for it in me is actually exactly that, lack of friends and family.  My parents are fortunately still together and very strong, and I have a sister who I'm very close with, other than that I'm on my own with family.  They have all turned me and my sister away.  None of my grandparents ever invite me over or talk to me, hell they won't even accept my friend requests on Facebook.  On top of that I live in the middle of nowhere, no houses for 2 miles, and am home schooled. As you can imagine I really have 0 friends.
I'm not trying to derail this thread or turn this into a pity party for myself but the main reason I'm saying all of this is that I wanted to thank everyone here who has ever replied to my threads, or those of you who are on Facebook who talk to me on Facebook or like my posts and stuff, it really means a lot to me.  It really really does.  So thanks to everyone here, this forum is the biggest group of friends I've ever had and I shouldn't have left it for so long.

You have my FB if needed. I am most responsive there if needed. I understand the lack of friends. I have basically 2 friends outside of family and I rarely talk with them anymore as they and I have been traveling down different paths. Like mrshaft696 said, you have some skills that I wish I had at your age.

Stay strong, but please reach out if you feel weak.

Yeah that's not bad at all. I'll probably clean her up later today and then try to actually run her off a gas tank (I was just dumping gas down the intake before).

4 screw?  I actually think they are easy to clean.  That straw on top half with all the holes, make sure they are clean. Flat head screwdriver and take that other tube out the bottom half.  Make sure the bottom hole is clear on that one.  If it lopes, that is the plugged hole.  It will be the first to clog.

Anyone know what size that big Craftsman LT1000 "NellyBelle" - Page 9 252588580 flywheel nut is? I don't even begin to have a socket that big. It looks close to an inch and a half.

Update, no I haven't quit working on it. I just bought an ultrasonic cleaner and the carb is now soaking. Should be running in a few days. I'm going to order a full rebuild kit for the carb.

I made some front fenders a while ago for the 2055 white in my signature (it’s actually a 990 chassis with a new hood). Me and a buddy of mine took some 16 ga and bent a 90 over on one side, notched a 45 and bent it and welded the gap together. They are very strong, and I used 1x1x1/8 angle to do the inner brackets and the front and rear caps, bolting them on with 3/8 hardware, and all together it’s unbelievably sturdy. I can write up the dimensions for you if you want,   but you will probably need something larger. You could also bend the sides out at 45 and go for that square body craftsman look if you so choose.

Hope that helps.
