  3. Happy Birthday Squonk

    Thanks you guys. Been a busy week but today I get to stay home and get paid because of the snow!
  4. Not a Lot.

    Ah yes the days of drift jumping. I had a friend about 35 yrs. ago when we really got a lot of snow off Lake Ontario. He had an old 60's Chevy wagon beater that he rammed the roads with during winter. He reinforced the front rad area and when we got some good snow ,we pile about 8 of us in there and a few cases of beer and go Drift Jumping or Busting. Those Firestone Town and Country's got a workout!
  5. Is This a Ride On?

    Kind of like these idiots!
  6. You can't make it up.

    I used to be the head HVAC guy at a hospital. Up the road north was a Sauerkraut packing plant. One spring they were making the kraut and the wind was out of the north. The operating rooms call and say they have a bad odor. I go into the office and they say can you smell it? I say I do but it's against health codes to shut off the air to the suite during surgery. So here's a few million dollars worth of surgeons and nurses saying " what do we do?" I told them to send someone down to the store and bring back some hot dogs and have a go at a Barb B que!

    Those wheels are just the ticket for keeping a blower out of the gravel.
  8. Undercover Wheel Horse "1467"

    My 1267 "Skonkfest" tractor has had a checkered past. I got it after my heart attack to help with snow removal at work. I t had had a stuck exhaust valve in the past. I found assorted other things like no carb base gasket, silly putty sealant on the breather ect. I repainted it last spring because I got tired of a pinkish tractor. It had run good since I had done some tinkering so I only replaced the head gasket and decarboned the head when I painted it. On it's way to it's first show it had fouled the plug. I cleaned it and didn't think twice. It ran through the Big Wheel horse show parade with no issues but this winter it started fouling the plug again. so bad I had to dig out the crud in the plug. It got to the point where it wouldn't run longer than 15 min with out fouling the plug even with an anti-fouler in it. I got a 14 HP K321 on the shelf of of an much newer tractor but I wanted to keep the original starter/genny set up. The donor motor: Ring gear needed to come off for the original shroud to fit: Shroud mocked up on 14 to see how it fits: Had to use the head off of the K301 for the correct bosses for the genny bracket. You can see all the oil on top of the piston and gunk around the exhaust valve. This was all cleaned up when I painted the tractor and is only a couple of hours of run time. I'm shocked that this really didn't smoke much: Look at the build up on the plug and antifouler after only a few min of run time: New engine painted up: Ready to drop in: Mounted on the tractor. This frees up the lift table to lift the tractor! Running with different stack. I stayed with the smaller one.
  9. We've got snow

    Around my neck of the woods, that looks more like springtime when the cotton wood seeds start flying!
