I have 3 of them now, the others were 312-8 that had already been re engine,d  when I got them , but they were rough with issues, those two are complete now , and my c-85 will be too. I think the magnum just runs with a total ease that I really like. after picking up some wiring details and conversion points on this site , it was time to get it done. it will have a number of restomod ideas that have proven to make things better for me. not a restoration, but a very solid worker , that's what I like. when I'm done I will post my finished horse, pete

I have a Magnum 12 in a C-175, great engine!  

 

It will handle anything, although I do like my KT17 for blowing snow, the Magnum is much less thirsty... lol

I have Magnum singles in several different tractors and I am more than happy with the power, smoothness, ease of operation, durability, and torque.  That is a good functional conversion that should serve you well for years to come.  

 

Peter—I think it is awesome that you have owned this machine for so many years.  Do you have an older pics of it that you can share or maybe have shared on the site that you can link me to?  

 

Are you sharing any any of your restomod ideas at this time or are you waiting to do them first and then share? I’d be interested in knowing what you have in mind!  Since I purchased the Super C, the blackhoods have grown on me...:wub:

peacemaker jack, I always try to show and tell what I have been up to , example, I often just work out an idea on a problem area, over time its made my horse very smooth and easy to operate. the blower angle chute rod knob ,went along with the blower lift springs, heim joints on tough swivel areas , make things easier. I will see if I can find more of my stuff, on this site, pete
