You can just buy the torque converter pulleys if you wanted. Be cheaper and you can buy them one at a time too. Oh, and a belt. And make your own setup.

It is a fun thought!

Got the starter part today and installed.  Here is the new one.

This is the old brittle one.

I saved the springs and bushings as they still looked good.  New end cap is working great. I just need a breather strap and that engine is complete and ready for application.  I sat it next to Engine 2.  They both need a bath.

Started Engine 3.

Popped off the head covers and was greeted with a surprize!

The pistons and valves look new!  The engine rolls good and all valves appear to work great.  One thing I noticed though, is the input valve on this engine seems to hang open just a hair longer than the others? Large lobe cam?

Well if I think of an engine as an air pump.  The intake is usually bigger than the discharge on pumps.  Makes sense to me.

LOL, I was comparing the open time to the other 2 engines. Smile  I could be a new cam inside there maybe?  One not so worn.

Throttle plate is rusted solid.  I have another in a drawer somewhere I think.  Looks like I will need a fan, my other parts engine has the cast iron fan flywheel.  Something to contemplate.  Also my spare tins are the ones with the muffler shield scoop.  Those may look funny on there. I may look into possibly swapping with Kal or Red the side tins.

No video on engine 3 at this time. Magnito/coil is bad and starter too.  Seems to have lots of compression.

One will go into the 77 hydro suburban.

I'm toying with an Idea for #2.

#3 overnight puked some oil after sitting overnight. I checked it over and it appears they put a vertical sump gasket on the PTO side instead of the gasket for the Horizontal. Other than that and needing tins, it's ready to go as well.
