Here ~She~ goes again...

As you know, I have a military motor. IIRC I paid $125 for it. If you like, I would sell it to you for $125 + shipping, in an attempt to maintain the military theme. It has less than 5 hours run time in it's life. I was the first person to start it. The down side is, it's only 1 1/2 HP. That's not very much, and maybe not enough, but if you want it, let me know.

That's very much appreciated Greg but we leave for the show tomorrow morning.

 

If I had more time with it I think I could figure out what's going on inside this carburetor. 

I ordered what I thought was the correct parts kit but ended up having to make my own bowl gasket which went fairly well. The issue is in the main mixture.

 

 

No worries. All good.

We had intended to swap another engine onto this tractor after the military tribute show so that we could turn it into Trina's primary worker for the winter. We just accelerated that program a little...

Congrats on the accomplishments EB and BBT!  Those clamps look like ground clamps to me.  In the long run, could that military engine receive a different brand carb?  I still have a Kohler carb rockin’ on a Tecky under Jane’s hood.  It’s one of the best running Tecky’s there is!

Thanks man!

 

The carb on the military engine likely could be adapted to something else but other than this upcoming show we really don't have any use for it...

Not sure if I'll take the time to tinker with it at all. Way too many much more pressing things ahead of it in line.

Those  are beam clamps for hanging equipment or sprinkler pipe. The large ones will hang 8" pipe.

We got the Military Tribute Tractor home yesterday and unloaded it. It was running a little smoother but it still needs a carb rebuild. Need to diagnose and wire up the charging system, more solidly modify the belt guard, change the throttle cable then put some running time on it to work out whatever bugs it has. 

 

Tractor runs like a little beast and Trina is looking forward to using it as a worker.

I think this is my favorite tractor you two have done!!

 

I'm gonna copy it at some point, maybe even the 121 I just got since the sheet metal is none too straight.

 

Just need it working for now though. 

 

I love that not only do you guys enjoy messing with these old tractor, you use them!!

Much appreciated randy. Thank you.

I'll share this with the BBT.

 

Building and working on them is fun but "working"  them is even more fun.
