got the yoeman running sweet! cleaned the carb. changed the fuel line, reset the choke so it works properly. runs like a little champ now! harvested a couple of engines for resale today. i got 4 engines running for resale. 8hp briggs 5hp briggs 4hp tecumseh 10hp briggs i fixed the pushmower, installed a new(stolen from a dead soldier) rope pulley and rewound the spring. put some fresh gas in and after two years of sitting it started up like i shut it off yesterday. i love those 3.5hp classic briggs, never fail i swear. still need to get a set of points for a 2hp briggs so i can get it up and running. i still have at least another 10 engines to get ready so i can sell them. so far my count of stuff to get ready for the show and swap meet is 3 tractors maybe a 4th yet 2 snowblowers 15 engines (i think thats the current count) still need to harvest a few from dead machines yet. misc. parts wheels and tires. i still need to pull the chain drive apart on a front tine tiller i have, see if i can fix it or if it will just be a good engine for resale. engine runs great after cleaning the points, that was all that was wrong with it.

i going to plainfield. they have a tri county show of tractors, garden tractors. most anything you can think of, they have old motors,hit and miss motors,steam engines. they also have a swap meet and a breakfast, and pie(good pie!). went last year and almost sold out of what i brought, so i thought i would do it again see if i have similar luck.
