  1. K341 16 hp Kohler carb base settings?

    Check for air being sucked in around a bad flange gasket or a loose throttle shaft.
  2. A sad sad day....

    Sorry for the loss Jim and Dan. Here's a pic of his older brother that I saved. And, the C-120, my first Wheel Horse.
  3. A Sobering Day

    Thank you all for your prayers and concern. I have no doubt Mark has the physical, mental, and spiritual strength to win this battle. The only reaction to his first chemo treatment has been a lasting hic-cup that kept him awake last night. Here's a picture taken 5 days after the lung surgery. Yes, we had a fishing trip planned and Mark refused to cancel the trip.
  4. Seafoam. Your thoughts

    I'm with Cleat on this one. Pull the jets spray carb cleaner in the holes. If you forget to note the settings, 1.5-2 turns out will get you running. If this doesn't help, take it off and do a cleaning. I do add Sea Foam to all my fuel as maintenance, but adding solvents (additives) to a dirty fuel system may loosen solid deposits that may increase the dirt in the carb. No additive will clean a carb that has been corroded by E-10.
  5. Happy Birthday 520HC

    Have a great day.
  6. Best Wishes on your day Terry. Thanks again for all you do for your family.
  7. A Sobering Day

    I spent the day with my son Mark (51yo) as he received his first seven hour chemo treatment. today. In early July, Mark was hospitalized with chest pains and numbness in his right arm. After the normal EKGs, and stress tests, it was determined his symptoms were due to stress and anxiety. Due to the numbness, a CAT scan was done to check for a blood clot. This CAT scan did not show any blood clot, but showed a spot on his right lung and thyroid. A tissue sample was taken from the thyroid spot and it tested benign. The spot on the lung was too close to his heart to risk taking a sample, so a PET scan was ordered and it lit up both spots indicating unusual cells. Surgery was scheduled to surgically obtain a specimen of the lung spot. It tested malignant so approx. 20% of his right lung and six surrounding lymph nodes were removed. One of the six nodes tested malignant, so three months of chemo treatment started today. A little background on Mark: He is an athlete, playing baseball, basketball, and football in high school and played baseball in the local adult semipro league. He is an avid hiker and white water kayaker. Has been coaching his two sons baseball travel team for five years. He never smoked and had his new log home tested for Radon when he built it. The answer we get when we ask the medical staff why he got cancer is ,bad luck. Mark does have a history of kidney stones, having to pass one about ever 5-6 years. After the lung surgery, he remembered getting a CAT scan during one of his kidney episodes, and reported it to his surgeon. He located the CAT scan that was taken in 2011 and it showed the spot on his lung. It was noted and measured by the radiologist, but never reported. At that time it measures 6mm dia. in 2011. When it was removed two weeks ago, it measured 14 mm dia. Sorry for the long story guys, Remember to hug your kids and grandkids. No one is bullet proof.
  8. 520H throttle requirements

    For low speed no load maneuvering, I run all my engines at idle. That includes Kohler and Tecumseh singles and Kohler and Onan twins. Never had a problem with the Eatons or Sundstrands.
  9. Front Plow Question

    A good 48" blade with the long frame, blade angle lever and rod sell for 150 -200 in my area this time of year. A clean axle bracket sells for 35-50.
  10. Wheel horse tractors

    Yep, restoring garden tractors is not a profitable business. Restoring better be a labor of love. Now buying rollers for cheap, getting them mechanically sound and selling as a worker can make a few bucks if you don't consider your time invested.
  11. Any recommendations

    This was the view from the downtown Holiday Inn.
  12. Any recommendations

    With only 3 days , I would definitely book a bus tour that includes the French Quarter and an above ground cemetery If your OK with a loud crowded bar type atmosphere, try Coops Place for some good Cajun food. I used the downtown Holiday Inn (the one with the giant guitar painted on the side) and was pleased with the prices and was able to walk to the river and most other sites.
  13. WH 516-H

    Any evidence the 1100 may be a transplant?
  14. It's the C series for me. Then there's this series.
  15. Public service announcement on ethanol

    When I prepare my mowers and boat motors for the winter storage, I mix a cocktail of 8oz of fuel, 2 oz of 2 cycle oil, and 2 oz of marine Sta-bil in an open tin can. I start the engine as normal, then disconnect the fuel line(usually at the filter) and stick the engine line in the cocktail and the tank end in a container. The cocktail is sucked into the fuel pump, carb, and cylinders. The fuel tank is drained into a container and burned in my vehicles. I then pull the plugs and spray fogging oil in each cylinder as I crank the engine a few times. This has worked for me for years for both 2 and 4 cycle engines. I even burn the 2 cycle mixed fuel in my vehicles w/o any problems. In the spring, I fill with fresh fuel and start up w/o any problems other than a little smoke until the cocktail burns off.
