    What are you powering with it?  Sensitive computer equipment? Typical lights and motors ain't gonna care.
    The governor should limit the rpms so make sure it's not hanging up or something. You can probably add a screw where the cable would go for things like a drill or mini bike engine that uses a throttle cable if you need to limit the butterfly from opening.

    I just pinched them with my fingers and kinda twisted.
    I guess you could make a ring compressor from some thin sheet metal and a hose clamp to tap them in sorta like big engines.

    Wallfish got a reaction from Mike in NC in Some of the nicer or more rare stuff   
    Next Saturday is a smaller get together up in Maine so figured I'd bring up some of the stuff that doesn't go to the big shows. They haven't seen the light of day in a LONG time so it'll be nice for people to see them. They're too small and expensive to leave unattended at the big shows although I have never heard of any stealing of anything at any of them.
    Just a small sample and will probably bring about 20-25 tools or so depending on available time to get them out. Pictures of the entire display all together next week

    Feels good to finally have this Chug-a-drill project finished.
     
    Here’s the final product…. It took a bit of tinkering to get the finish aged and worn-in like I wanted it so that it would look more original to the drill.

    Wallfish reacted to K-TRON in The rare 6 port O&R!   
    For your amusement is the rare 6 port O&R engine!  This engine was put away "running", as I am sure most are! This little O&R must have been dug out of a lake bed. The muffler was completely packed full of mud. I bead blasted the engine and submerged it in my heated ultrasonic cleaner for three days. I gave the cylinder a wiggle with my O&R cylinder removal tool, and snap, the connecting rod blew in half. With the cylinder separated from the crankcase I re-blasted the engine this time getting under the piston, and into the crankcase. The crankcase free'd up within an hours time in the ultrasonic. The piston was a job the grease gun fought with. I am surprised to say that this little casting can actually take 5,000psi of force, as the bypass on the pump hit a few times as heat was applied. The little piston finally came out, and it was rusted and corroded all over. It turns out that the mud in the muffler eat through the cast iron liner into the cylinder. So much for trying to save the cylinder!  This one is a goner. I will have to put a donor piston/cylinder/rod in this one when I go about replacing all of the needle bearings. I thought you guys would like to see the pictures even though the situation isnt the greatest. The pump has been loosely reassembled and now has spark, so that is a good thing!

    The AEP chicken power used a different gas tank that mounted above the engine on the handle bars so the carbs did not have or need a primer button

    I sent a message to the seller on eBay with the complete head, piston & crank. Said it doesn’t have any scoring - might be worth the gamble, especially at that price which is really reasonable.

    The lapidary saw is for cutting rock, stone. Thin diamond blade with a water reservoir below for cooling
    There never was a count on the different tools. Although I've seen and heard of most, new stuff still pops up every once in a while

    Didn't have time to really set up the display so they ended up scattered on the trailer. There was still a couple left in the van.

    Add some oil to get about 32:1 but don't use outboard oil. It's different than air cooled oil. Something with the ash and ashless and etc. Always best to run heavier on oil than lean. Haven't fouled a plug yet at 32:1 so...
    Even at 32:1 you have 1/2 the amount of oil. 50:1 is way to lean on oil for these IMO. It might work but you should know if it doesn't by the bottom of the first tank full.
    Best to give it a rip and get it all running BEFORE paint. You may need to remove the cover a couple times and noth'n suck worse than scratching up new paint. $0.02

    You can fold and crimp the edges closed too in order to bend it but still need the plate welded on.
    Circumference of a 10" circle is about 31 1/2 inches and most places sell tube at 36 inches. Good tight crimps on the ends and you can fill it with water which is much easier to empty out.
    And just another little tid bit. Connecting car batteries in series does work for arc/stick welding. I have a real welder but curiosity got the best of me so had to try it. Not the most safe thing I guess but danger is my middle name! LoL
    I used 3 batteries but thinking 2 would work with a small thin rod

    All of those metal rings go on after the gaskets.
    The last thing to go on is the O ring which seals the connection of the case and the head. The rest seals the manifold and the head
    Yup, that check valve bearing should stop gas flow. Something is wrong

    Install the gaskets and manifold onto the cylinder head. The rubber type gaskets are 2 different sizes. The one with the larger inside diameter hole goes on the cylinder first. Then manifold, then 2nd gasket, then metal rings, then O ring. Tightened it by hand using a rag for grip, use a tool to get it tighter if needed. Turning the manifold with the cylinder at the same time will get it close to tight

    The points pin where the spring sits on is short and shouldn't be tall enough to touch the cover. The points spring needs to be in contact with the pin as that's the transfer of the connection to the pin and the condenser. Make sure that connection is clean. Clean the post and the spring. 
     
    A cause of running erratic is typically the case seals. Leaking seals will affect the vacuum/pressure pulse pressure of the carb diaphragm and that's how the diaphragm moves to pump fuel. When fuel is pumped erratically it will run erratically and no adjustment to the carb is going to fix that.
     
    Clean ALL the points connections
    Add a few drops of DOT3 brake fluid (Not synthetic ) to each of the crankshaft seals with them still in place on the engine. Let it sit at least over night. Brake fluid swells the rubber and most times will be enough to seal the crank. There are other  little O ring seals at the points push rod and the one screw for the carb. If they are missing it will cause a big leak
    Bent or damaged carb to case gaskets can do the same thing
