Husband wants some advice… lol. So we did an engine swap today on two suburbans because we could not get the one engine to spark all the time to get it running! The engine ran last year before parking for the winter sleep…. Points were changed out for new the engine was cleaned to make good contact has new spark plug new coil condenser we even switched out the fly wheel today thinking maybe the magnet was weak…. Advice??? It would where are you out yanking on the recoil five or so times and maybe only get the points to fire twice if you’re lucky.. checked the gap and pull again… same thing over and over! Thanks in advance!
Well got my new weight yesterday! My valentines gift from my husband now has the front weight less likely to pop those wheelies!!!! There might be enough power still but doubt it…. He bought me the RJ from David in Arkansas a few years back we posted on the trip! The moment we saw the ad on here about the front weight we had to have it! Seize the moment, don’t know when ever come across another for sell…! So here I just wanted to share pictures of it! My tractor is a bit dirty from winter setting but i wipped it down just a little for the photo opt!!
Well my husband got new grownup toys! Lol. Just wanted to post them on here to share! Sure most seen for sale but they arrived yesterday at our back door glad we found them before it rained again! Not sure why delivery person made the effort to go to the back of the house…. 🤔🤯
