    310-8 and 312-8

    @RandyLittrell You might also pull the fuel and clean it, or just go ahead and put a rebuild kit in it. One of my other color tractors was taking a while to crank, and I bought a full replacement fuel pump off Ebay for a low price, Cured the problem, now starts right after i kit the key.
  3. I've certainly spent enough time brushing bolts and small items. I was at a harbor Freight yesterday and drooled over those. There on my craigslist search list.

    Favorite weekend breakfast

    All this talk, got me thinking of Birds Nest Breakfast. I was a Scout Leader of various titles for many years and taught boys to make this large Dutch Oven style breakfast for cookig competitions. Start by browning 2 lbs if pork sausage in a Dutch Oven. Then add 1 or 2 lbs if potato strings and brown. Next add 12 to 18 eggs and scramble. For the final judges “presentation” touch cook 3 eggs over easy on top and there your birds nest. Feeds about 6-8 hungry boys

    The H10C spark plug is correct for this engine, so your good there.

    Blowed spark plug

    @Whnewone Please share a little more information. What tractor and engine is this, and what brand & part # spark plug are you using. Is there a chance you are using an incorrect plug.

    Watch the classified here. There was a k321 14 hp listed that just sold. Also @richmondred01 rebuilds motors and usually has a few on the shelf to sell.
