A HUGE thank you to Tony @Docwheelhorse for settin' me up here.
The generosity of some of our members never ceases to amaze me.
This here is another 1974 C160, but with the rare Tecumseh HH/OH160 OHV engine. Made one year only.
It's rough. Very much in need of a full disassembly and restoration.
When it came here it was missing one tie rod and the other was broken off one end.
Today I popped used tie rods on and Trina used her 867 to drag it from the drive to the shed.
The engine wouldn't move.
Tin was near chock full of skeletal mouseseses and their house.
Cleaned that out and the engine spins freely now.
So progress has been made.
It'll be a good long while before we get to this one but I just couldn't turn it down considering the rarity.
I added braces and shims to the rear end of the frame to beef up the cracked existing 'frame to transmission bracket'. Now, the parking brake does not engage.
The shims are about 1/8" and have to stay on.
Is there a way to adjust the parking brake?
Can anyone help finding year of this tecumseh motor off a 603. I need a carburetor.
I'm replacing the fuel pump on Kohler magnum m12 12hp which is leaking. I replaced it with the manual pump as per the picture. which is very similar. I event tested it before fitting. but it just doesn't pump any fuel through. I'm trying to figure what the problem could be be. I'm pretty sure I've fitted it correctly, and when I put the old pump back on it works fine.
Am I missing something ? I noted its got the large circle with the kit but I didn't use that as I could see if it was needed anywhere anyway.
Any help would be much appreciated. I just don't understand why its not pumping the fuel through
We're going to take apart the Tecumseh from my Honey's 657 so I can replace the crankshaft.
Any little tricks or tips I need to know about?
