Snuck up to Ron's over the weekend, and we both sat around and chilled more than worked! We got a little done for StoneThrow, but mostly just caught up on life a bit!
Then on Sunday, I cut grass around the pond with Mr. Harold's LoBoy. When I shut er down to move a log, ugh...a horrible screeching sound from the engine! I've got a sick feeling this ole feller has some engine work in his future! ...or maybe just a dry fan (I hope!)...Started it back up, and more squallin...
The front cover and oil pan need new gaskets and seals, he's blowing a good bit of carbon smoke, and he's gettin a little low on power (to be fair, the grass was over a foot high!). So I was planning to swap him over to 12-volt with pertronix this winter. But maybe first it's time to put the engine on a stand and go through it?
What do you guys think about having a look at Stonethrow?
I found this old Cub, Forgotten and Forlorn,
With pistons and valves frozen and worn.
Help from my buddies on Farmallcub.com,
And an engine from Ralph, (37’s the one),
Now ole Corky is running and back to life,
Much to the surprise of my dear, dear wife!
