New member ...and another old-Iron guy here...with my 1st Wheel Horse tractor.
I was looking for something mainly for pulling an old aluminum boat (18' starcraft) around the property.
Capability to mow and haul yard waste would be a bonus.
2 weeks ago, a C85 showed-up on CL for a song.
He couldn't start it for me and it didn't take me long to figure out why...
This will be a running thread / rolling-restoration as I bring her back to her original, Black-Hood glory!
(DISCLAIMER: I'm an engine-wrencher ...I have the tendency to leave my foot off of the project's gas when the engine starts drinking it!)
Finally got me a lawn ranger and picked it up for an awesome price!! Now to get it running good. H60 Tecumseh won't run right. Goes from running great to running absolutely terrible and backfiring from the carb. I'm guessing the valves are messed up? Compression test rendered around 85 psi.
