    Fresh and Clean

    Either way, if it’s a Ford you’ve already won. I believe your choice of oil makes a big difference too. Guys out here runnin around with feul-injected, turbocharged, MSD and all, using WalMart Mystery oil.

    Fresh and Clean

    Now you’re talking more my language. I used to build racing engines in a shop here in Baltimore. Had a 68 442 with the original Rocket 400 engine with the Ram-Air Induction scoops in the front grill. I’m far from being a novice when it comes to engines. Just posted my original question because I...

    Fresh and Clean

    Gaskets and seals cost money. I.’most not a,mini bike collector bent on doing a perfect factory new rebuild. I have one old mine bike, I bought it at a flea market for my son long time ago for $25. Changed the plug, the oil, and air filter, and he used it for about two years. It’s been parked...

    MTD

    Scraping the barrel right now. Overdue on everything. Just doing this rebuild to keep from going stir crazy. Last winter, when I was still working, I got new points, condenser, plug, breather assembly, air filter, and gaskets for the carb, manifold, and ignition cover. Just need the time, now...

    MTD

    So, you still have this sprocket ? I have a sprocket on it, but I’m positive it isn’t original. It’s very heavy, solid(no holes), and looks like it came off some sort of machinery. I think someone put it on for larger diameter, so more torque at the wheel. I used to ride it like that, but...

    Fresh and Clean

    Re: Fresh and clean... Thanks to all for your input. I probably will just fill with fresh oil, run until hot, then drain and refill again. I didn’t want to remove the side cover if I could avoid it. I’m sure it’s the original factory seal, so why take a chance on a possible future leak, even...

    I have an old MTD Trail Flite, with a Tecumseh H-35. Hasn’t been run since 1981. Has been stored in my basement, out of the weather. Engine turns freely still. It was running great when I parked it, A litttle cleaning, oiling, and maybe a tune up will do. I have a question though. I plan on...

    Bike ID

    I have an old mini bike that’s been in my house for about thirty some years. Bought it at a flea market long ago. It’s been disassembled for a long time, and I’m trying to put it all back together and bring it to life. Working on a low budget, just wanna ride it. No custom paint jobs, no high...

    I’m gonna get some pictures together in a day or two. I think it might be an MTD, but the engine clearly has a Craftsman number. May not be the original. Plus, the wheel sprocket looks like someone made it to fit. It uses #41 chain. It’s been sitting for thirty five years, and I’m resurrecting...

    No, actually it’s black. The mini bike has no markings to tell me what it is, but the engine number is a Craftsman number. At the moment, it is all in pieces, so a picture wouldn’t do much. It has a very odd looking clutch, at least to me, and I’m trying to ID the frame. Where should I look for...

    Hello. I have a Craftsman/Tecumseh H35 from the early seventies. One of you experts sent me a link to download the Tecumseh Service Manual for these type engines, I think it said 3-11 hp. My laptop died, and now I don’t have the link anymore. Can someone please send it to me again ? Greatly...
