    If it is leaking out there the needle and seat in the carb is not shutting off the flow of fuel. Get a rebuild kit and go thru the carb.
  2. Will be there August 24th. Probably not the whole day.
  3. Harbor Freight 14 HP rescued from the dead

    Where that screw landed it may have collapsed the top ring land, which freezes the ring in its land. Possibly even breaking the ring in some cases. No easy way to check without a teardown. Have a Honda engine here that happened to. Yours may be ok, if not May tear up the cylinder wall.
  4. HH55 and HH60 engines

    All the H series engines were aluminum blocks and the HH series are cast iron. Some H series blocks had cast iron sleeves and some were aluminum bore. There is probably a way to tell which is which on the block but I don't remember how to tell.
  5. HH55 and HH60 engines

    Physically they are the same size. Have not worked on any for a long time as to the differences.
  6. I liked the miniature Allis Chalmers G. Think I saw that at Winamac also.
  7. The 1054 is home

    People who saved them are laughing now because restorers pay big money for them! I've seen them in the GTO world and i will not be buying one.
  8. That is just twenty miles up the road from me may make a run up there.
  9. Was over there Thursday, water on the west side was almost up to the drive. Police had been around checking the water level.
  10. R-26 with 5.5hp Tecumseh No Spark

    Glad you got it to fire. Sometimes cleaning the points up will do the trick!
  11. I am not sure you will feel much with a larger carb without further upgrades. Like camshaft and up the compression and maybe more rpm. I have an H60 here I built years ago .030 over, ports opened up, .040 or .050 ground off the bottom of the cam lobes for more lift. Head was cut about .040 also and it had a billet aluminum rod in it. An eight horse carb would not flow enough to feed it. Never did any more to it after the cam rework was going to put a Mukuni carb on it.
  12. R-26 with 5.5hp Tecumseh No Spark

    The Tecumseh does have a condenser under the flywheel along with the points. A bad condenser will not let it fire. If you get in there and the magneto is held down with two bolts and if moved it affects the timing. Points can be changed without removing the whole unit.
  13. R-26 with 5.5hp Tecumseh No Spark

    I think the points and condenser would be the place to start.
  14. Tecunseh V7hp replacement engine?

    I am pretty sure the Tecumseh and Briggs have the same mounting pattern. Probably the Honda also have not had one of those in my hands to compare. Have switched Tecumseh to Briggs.
  15. Axle bearings on c120 auto

    I did something similar to the link above, got a piece of copper the correct thickness matched the radius of key to one of my hole saws and cut a piece out Put a flat on it so i could clamp it in place and welded around it. Came out pretty good.
