    61 and 62 steering question

    If it's too bad, you can drill it out and put in a bronze bushing.

    rear tires

    I've used these same tires. Good quality and they look nice. I highly recommend them. If you want something closer to the original tread you can get these, but they are very expensive. http://www.millertire.com/products/lawn-garden-tires/6-12/6-12-firestone-town-country-turf-4-ply/

    painting

    I've always used IH red out of a spray gun. Although as you can see, they spray cans now do a pretty good job. Since you've had it blasted you should have a nice smooth surface to paint over and that will really help. I've just found that the paint out of my spray gun holds the gloss a whole lot longer than rattle can paint.

    Traded a Horse for a Monkey

    I haven't gotten it running yet. Previous owner said it sat outside for some time and hadn't run in quite a few years. I believe it because the carb was full of goo and so was the tank. Tank is soaking in lacquer thinner as I type this. Carb has been freed up and rebuilt. New points and condenser, old points were pitted beyond filing. Waiting on a new coil. Water had gotten in the top and rusted the plug wire fast so when the new coil gets here I'll make a new wire. Good news is that it turns over so it should run, just not sure if it'll smoke or not. Dick I wouldn't trade this for a $100 bill! I think it has the look man! Lol

    Spotted this old one, What is it?

    There were some good horses at that show too that's for sure!
  13. A condenser for any K series engine will work. You can get them on the internet or some auto parts stores have them. If you have a napa nearby I know they can get them for you. Mike

    Re-engine a 1969 Wheel horse 700

    I have a 700 at home that is going to be a similar project. It has the original 7hp tecumseh on it, but I've never been able to make it run right and I've had it for years. So now I keep my eye open for a Kohler k181 like something off of a B80 and I'm going to do an engine sway and call it a done. If you don't mind the look of a modern engine you can get a 6.5 horse predator engine at harbor freight.
