A long "day" well spent....

Recommended Posts

rokon2813

buying treasures, swapping stories, and enjoying company, although the heat beat us both terribly.I hope Rod had as good a time as I did, heat and sweat not withstanding...Left my house around 5 pm Friday and returned about 11 pm on Saturday about 1000 miles later.

Dan,

Looks like a good load! What's that "Thunder Foot" 725?


id="quote">
id="quote">Thunderfoot is a Montgomery Wards Squire running a 14 hp Kohler.From what I understand it has been competitive for nearly 30 years and I think if Rod set it up it still would be.

id="quote">For all those concerned. Rod is fine, just moving soon and can't take it all with him.Greg, normally it might be a bit far, but right place right time I guess.I think we came to an agreement that made us both happy, with a side benefit of making my wife happy.I dropped her off at her friends' in Shamokin Dam and continued on alone. Picked her up on the way back, so she had a day away out of the deal too.

Another big load, more stuff than the last one you posted about. It should keep you busy sorting it out.

Hopefully there will continue to be some young folks that keep up Rod's traditions and knowledge sharing.

Also needs a gas tank that I think I have too.Rear tires will be changed. I think the correct blue rims are on the 112. Need to go through the shift linkage, it creeps in neutral (hydro)It's a 716H with 10 hp briggs engine, modified slightly. Has a 3 bolt carb. Low mount starter generator, and decompression bump on the cam so it turns hard.Hydro lift is a powermax valve with float in the forward position and Sunstar cylinder.

      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.
