    I really like your work. I wished I lived near you so I could visit and the projects you are working on.

    Not Fla but

    @JAinVA Well Jim just proves tall Virginia pines are no match the wind. Hopefully there was not too much damage. The way the wind was blowing up here I thought I was going to find all the roof shingles in the neighbors yards. Got lucky and just had to pick up a few small branches .

    Anybody on Disability?

    @RandyLittrell Randy I had to take disability in 2006 due to a fractured vertebrate . Based on my experience here is what I know . You can not be working at any job. A doctor has to write a boat load of stuff explaining you can not work at your profession and may have to include why you can't be trained to do something else. Get all of this done and go to a law firm that specializes in Social Security Disability Claims. I about drove my self nuts trying to do the work myself. I was turned down the first time. Lawyer got me disability in about 4 weeks. There is a set amount of money that a lawyer can charge for handling your claim. Social Security will back pay you. Say for example you quit working Nov.1 of this year and it takes 6 months for Social Security to say ok you are disabled. They will back pay you for the entire time. After 2 years of disability you are eligible for Medicare no matter what your age. Are your a veteran ? If so try to get health benefits from the VA.

    Spark Plugs

    @pfrederi and @JAinVA have you all tried the E3 plugs ? Use them in blower , push mower etc , wish I could find for the Horse. There does not seem to be a cross to the Champions last time I looked.

    How do you pick up / put down / move around your heavy engines?

    @WVHillbilly520H and @ebinmaine I have the same hoist , I like the way you can adjust the width of the front wheels . Narrow width for storage and wide for lifting. Works great. Eric check out estate sales .

    Commando 8 VS Commando V8

    @Racinbob That is strange about the regulator mounting. I have my Dad's Commando 800 and the regulator is hidden in the tower. I know that the Commando 800 came with 10 inch rear rims and 6 inch front rims. Not sure about the 73 8 hp no name.

    Commando 8 VS Commando V8

    Welcome to Red Square , I don't think it is a Commando 800 , the finned regulator was hidden behind the tower. It was not exposed like the photo you sent. My guess would be a 73 no name.
