    What can the older generations take on?

    When the piston is at TDC you can put oil in the valve spring compartment and the oil goes down to the oil pan, when the piston is at BDC you can put oil in it but the oil seems to stay in the hole.So if the oil does not seep through I should just run it hard to where the piston skirt down. WHX14 do you think the breather gasket can seal out no mater how much oil is in the valve spring compartment.For the first 5 hours I used it to clear a 1200 foot driveway of 18'' of snow with a snow thrower .

    Here"s the history. Its a 1968, I rebuilt it because the piston would move around In the cylinder bore and it would back fire.It has OEM piston rings .030 oversized piston, new bearings, new seals, new OEM camshaft, new valve guides, new valves, new OEM tappets, new OEM valve springs, new OEM head,. new 010 undersized connecting rod, and all new gaskets.Before I rebuilt it the breather gasket leaked real bad but I thought it just needed a new gasket.I did not care when it leaked oil before I rebuilt it because it was the wrong color paint now it is all painted red and all original parts.It has 5 hours on it since I rebuilt it.I've changed the oil once.No signs of white sludge in oil pan though. There has been a ton of moisture on the engine it is stored in a garage that is not climate controlled.

    The breather cover was all rusty and when the piston goes down the hole for the oil to drain back in the pan is blocked. Maybe when I shut the engine off the piston blocks the hole and theres no where for the oil to go.Except out the breather cover.

    Hi everyone,on my k301 there was a lot of oil coming out of the bottom of the breather cover so, I decided to take it off and there was some oil around the tappets.I'm not to worried about the oil but there is a hole on the left side of the block where the governor is not sure if this is where the oil is coming from?

    Pictures of cable routing for C-81 1979??

    The upper belt guide goes above the belt and what it does is prevent the belt from chafing on the belt guard.

    The throttle cable leads under the engine into the retainer clamp on the throttle bracket.There are two clamps for the throttle cable one at the throttle bracket and the other on the starter. Adjust throttle by loosening cable retainer clamp then set throttle to full operate position. Tighten retainer clamp with the throttle in the operate position and make sure the stop pin is against the bracket. There are two clamps for the choke cable one on the blower housing,the other at the carburetor. To adjust loosen cable retainer clamp at carburetor set to full cold position and tighten retainer clamp to fully closed position.

    Newbi question

    I’m thinking it is a 12hp or 14HP and hood is definitely not original.It’s not a 857 because the pto setup does not match a 857 but what it does match is a raider.The pto does match a charger but a charger is an automatic and this one is a six speed I think.

    Newbi question

    I did see that and I don't no why the previous owner put the hood ornament on backwards?If you look at the first picture of the stick shifts it looks like some one put a hook on one of the shifters to keep it from slipping out, it's not a real concern right now though.

    Newbi question

    Check under the dash thats were they are on chargers.Looks like a charger/raider but could be an 857.If you can take a pic of the ID on the blower housing of the engine I could maybe give you the year of the engine.

    Sorry guys. For some reason last night the second pdf did not show up last night and the first one did not show how to install the lines on the transmission.
