starting to get the motor back together, honestly getting the bolts to put the shrouds back on has been a pain because they were all missing...

That opposed is looking really nice! Almost looks like it needs a 426 HEMI decal on it, hahaha.

Are those shroud bolts an odd size or something?

Very nice. The shroud bolts should be just 1/4" 20 pitch. Just normal coarse thread.

Looks sharp for sure! Should be pretty cool to see it in the tractor.

engine is bolted in, pulley is on. Now I am just working on the wiring.  Gonna do a simple job, push button start, kill switch, and headlights....then I can finally reassemble, the way this tractor is you cannot touch or see the wiring behind the dash without taking stuff apart.

I hated that design flaw with the simplicitys. At least put a main fuse somewhere someplace where you can get to it like right on the battery.

Yeah it is stupid, who the hell wants to take the steering wheel off to change an ignition or something.... the only benefit to it, is it does not get as dirty since it is sealed inside.

So I finally got a belt that kind of works, & pulled it out of the garage for the first time.... Still has one flat rear tire, waiting for a tube... I basically spent the last 6months gathering parts for that opposed motor which was incomplete, the shrouds, carb, choke setup, so many other little things.

Anyway I dumped the clutch a few times for fun, and this this is gonna be nutz. It runs great and as soon as I get the tube I will get some vids of it.

major bad night....
I tubed this tire for the 2nd time and the tube instantly failed... I dont know what the hell i am doing right or wrong...but both tubes ripped at the valve stem area. I checked the area behind the valve stem it is smooth as can be, what the hell?   Also my brand new starter with gear stripped, probably only started the engine a dozen times.... bad luck....there are a few distorted flywheel teeth but not very many...

Tube getting pinched or maybe a sharp spot in the valve hole? Maybe look for a tube with the stem offset from center?

Sux about the starter, maybe get just the gear to replace? You will need to probably replace the gear on the flywheel or maybe easier the flywheel.

yeah I have a spare starter....its just a pain to take that starter off since the one bolt is hidden, and its new...I will try it again and see if I get the same result before I replace the flywheel.

the tube I don't know, but I did check the entire rim for burrs before I put this tube in, and literally 30sec after installing it the valve stem base split...

Man these oppys seem to be laiden with starter problems.  

These tube problems seem out of the ordinary.  Sometimes I pinch the tube with a tire iron on accident but that doesn't look like the case here.

The starter bolt is easy to get out when you've done it as many times as i have. An open end wrench and big hands make it pretty easy lol

Yeah its no biggie...

Well I fixed up the starter, took it for a ride, it drives awesome & does well offroad, then I shut it off and it wouldn't restart and it stripped the starter gear again.

So Imagine I was furious, so at the moment Im pulling the motor and putting a known working good 19.5 oppy I have in it, and taking my time to figure out what is wrong with the other engine. I am pretty sure the ring gear is inadequate. So will have to take time to take the flywheel off etc etc. I am buying another oppy today, so I will put the best working one I have on this because I really want to drive it.

Hmm, makes sense that the ring gear could be bad. In your one picture there I can actually see a bad spot:

Simplicity Mouse - Page 5 20180665

Whether that's bad enough to strip the gear I'm not sure. Could be other bad spots on the ring gear though.
