Glad that you got to the bottom of the issue. Sounds like you have added years of service back into this great machine!

Great update and looking nice! I fear a ring job is in my future as well. I've had smoke out of my breather for a few years. Glad you got it running good!

Beet juice adds weight but does not freeze or corrode the rims if it leaks out of the tube.

Grass now quakes and stands up tall at the sight of your 184.

I’m a tad late here but I use hones from http://www.EngineHones.com
I use the ball hones if there’s no scoring in the cylinders. I use the lisle gear driven hones for boring. They offer course stones for rough boring and fine grit stones for finishing. The ball hones come in silicon grit for nickasil or chrome lined bores I use these on the chains I’m building.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
