Well here is the pic that I said that I would post I hope you have a strong stomach tonight. Remember that it was in a scrap yard ready to be sent to china to be sent back as a cheap tool. I have not took it off of the trailor yet, because I thought that I could see what could be saved first. It looks like someone abused it in its young life, but maybe not for long. There is a crack in the block, three guesses where the crack is, and the first two don't count. They had stripped the threads in the carburator where the bolts attach it to the manifold, so they had used a pair of vicegrips to hold the carb. The radiator, and rear light was gone, but I think that every thing is there.
When I was checking every thing out, I tried to turn the engine over, and it was free. Then I removed a spark plug to check for compression, and there was compression. So I cleaned the points put on another carb, and after several tries the cub came to life. It smoked for a few seconds from the oil that I had put in the cylinder, but cleared up and ran well. It is a shame that the block is cracked, I think that the engine is in fair to good shape. The touch control also works, so I think that there will be some good parts if I don't try to save the whole thing
There is a C2 mower on it also, that seems to be solid with nothing locked up, or welded up. For scrap price I think that the mower could almost pay of the cub if I don't save the cub as a whole.
Sorry for the long winded post, but wanted to let you all know my thoughts.
