B-207 projects

I had a little time Sunday to work outside. Thought I would work on the B-207 I bought from Rich Nolte (B-16IC). I also had another B-207 I purchased back in October that I hadn't yet touched (prettier one).

 Rich got this tractor from Jared (Swede) Olsen along with some other items. I found it appeared to have had a new coil. A carb kit had been put in at some point but the carb did need some cleaning again. I installed a fuel filter, flushed the tank through, added an air cleaner, air filter, and muffler. Cleaned the plug. With several pulls of a rope it was running. Runs good enough for just putting around. Might burn oil under use. Also checked the generator output and it was very weak. Still quite happy with the trade. Thank You Rich.

Now for the other tractor. It is in acceptable cosmetic condition for an original tractor. When I bought it I noticed it had already had the improved (reinforced) later style carburetor installed. The tractor has had an oil leak and must have leaked neary all the oil out of the engine. It had adequate kickback so I had figured it was in OK shape. When I went to drain the oil none came out. I  filled it up and it ran on choke cleaner. I might have to rebuild it. It has been short blocked so I'm hoping it has the cast-iron cylinder liner. I cleaned the carb and had some trouble getting the nozzle out. I had to drill it and  use a screw extractor.  It was tight and removing it created enough force to leave a very slight crack in the lower tube of the carburetor body. I am optimistic it will still function properly. I installed a new needle and seat.

Good to see it at a better home! I didn't think it looked like it had been long since it had ran. Getting things assessed, now you can start deciding what part to swap where. ;)
