What to on a rainy day?

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I decided to see a friend,what else is there to when it rains:( all day long. Me and my cousin went to look for a mower deck for a MTD tractor. The three of us guys drove up to the other place he has lawnmowers at. When we came back I seen a Allis Chalmers tractor sitting in a driveway,we stopped and asked about the tractor and then bought the tractor.The tractor was a Allis Chalmers early B-10 with 30" roto tiller. Now I have the parts to finish my 1966 AC B-10 tractor.;) Made the trip worth the drive,did not get the MTD mower deck.:D:D Karl

I spent a rainy Sunday changing the impeller gearbox and replacing the starter rope in an old Allis snowblower, then getting the old 10HP engine in my parts Big Ten running. The tractor had been sitting for at least 2 years when I bought it 5 years ago -- so it hadn't run in at least 7 years. The starter-generator was bad (new that when I bought it) and with a good starter generator and a different carb, it would hit and run intermittently. Tried cleaning, sanding and regapping the points. Same story... I could wiggle the wire from the magneto and it would sometimes make a difference. Finally, I unbolted the engine and moved it forward enough to pull the cooling shroud. There was a mouse nest on top of the magneto. I cleaned it out, cleaned the rust off the flywheel magnets with some emory cloth and put it back together. Now it runs good, though it does blow a puff of white smoke when you accelerate hard. It doesn't smoke at at a steady speed, regardless of the engine speed, only on acceleration. Good project for a rainy Sunday afternoon. Though I truly didn't add to the collection, this motor seems like a "freebie" since it is a good running one that I didn't know I had before... since I didn't know anything about it. ;)

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
