7119 project

Recommended Posts


I found this 7119 on craigslist.


One of the previous owners replaced the original motor with a Briggs Vanguard. But at some point, the Vanguard dropped a valve which resulted in this "piston/valve assembly."


I cleaned up the frame


and had the seat pan/fender and hood commercially powder coated.



I found another Vanguard. Now I just have stir things around and voila!

Beats my two pair. I just picked a paint chip from the wall at the order desk. But I will get the specs if you like.

id="quote">Nah, that's ok. I think I'm going to try Kubota Orange. Seems like a pretty close match to the mid 70's models.

I wouldn't mind trying powder coat for body panels that don't contact other panels, like a hood and seat pan, but when i've tried powder coat on other things, the first chip is the beginning of the rest peeling off. sm02 Paint you can touch up. I wouldn't PC a grader, that's for sure.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
