    Looks like a good project. Take your time, if it sat for 20 years there is no need to get it running in the first couple of weeks you have it home.

    Yup, I like old Johnny Poppers.



    Super simple, lots of good honest torque, cool sound, what's not to love?

    Don't leave us Reel-Brake! Now that you teased us, become a regular! Suggestions: Gear Shift in Neutral, Brakes Free, to be able to load it! When home, first thing you want to do is see if the Engine is 'Stuck'! Yeah I said that (Stuck! Old tractor rebuilders speak for seized) If not, oil the cylinders, and turn several times. If 'stuck', pull plugs and add a lube to soak, soak, soak,....... I'm sure some folks here got receipes to suggest! Great aquirement! Wish you well don't be a stranger! ~Scotty

    Neat project!

    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride!
