Grumm, what flywheel and clutch are you planning on using?

depends who you talk to
I would like to use a multi plate clutch but I'll see how our budget looks
the only consideration for the flywheel at this stage is that it's steel
I will have to have a further look thru the reciepts and see if it indicates anything
so I don't know if its 153 or 168 yet or if it's internal or external balance
Also I need to check the pattern on the crank and see if it's got one offset bolt
In the middle of which, I am renovating my house. I'm not much of a house renovating type guy
What I need is Goggles and Hotnuts here. I'll supply the beer
Those guys are always doing stuff with timber

Happy to help although some of my solutions can be a little "agricultural"............

Grumm, can you go back to the sauce of the engine to get the info you need?
Considering the load or lack of it, you might not want to complicate things with a multi disc.

You may see I have a set of ancient floor dogs behind that arrangement there, up against the wall there aren't many ways of cramping the boards, that method there works pretty well......... back to our usual programming......

Love you are all back and working with that extraordinary engine.  Looking forward to the build and run.

Now about the carpentry... Using snow as insulation is not a good idea no matter how hot it gets. And using the floor to move the wall is inefficient no matter how many levers you daisy chain together. Let me know if you need help, I have a BFH here somewhere.

Okay, I've built a Soapbox Derby car, managed and maintained an apartment building, bought, remodeled and flipped a house during the worst downward spiral of the US housing market since the Great Depression, have been involved in countless home repair schemes - for pity's sake, I work on MGs - but I am absolutely flummoxed as to what on earth you are trying to accomplish with this Rube Goldgerg arrangement of implements.

you people have no idea. rolleyes

I am laying reclaimed floorboards

A short end, close to the wall can't be cramped up, thus it'll leave an uneven gap ......what you're looking at there is a small piece of board used as a spacer, another piece behind the mattock (against the wall) the bottle jack is pumped up just enough to cramp those last two boards up, getting an even result.....


doesn't matter...............

Goggs, I knew what you were doing.   wink

I should be home in a couple of weeks and will send a picture of a scatter shield if you are still in the hunt.

Yeah, but then what will you use to fill in the void between the block and tranny in the SOS?

Speaking of agricultural. I tired of borrowing the FIL's mulcher ( almost as fast as he did) and I'd seen one at a rust shop beside the highway, not any old one but the exact same model he had which is actually a good design, as opposed to most of them that make noise, smoke, propel items at dangerous speed and then jam, in that order. It was cheap, upon closer examination it had no compression, a suspected stuck valve,

"OK, $130"

So I bought it..... how hard could it be.

Milwaukee's finest, cutting edge flat head incorporating a plastic toothed governor..........I took the head off, turned it over, the valves seemed to work fine but I could help but notice the significant dwell-time of the piston.

I can't impress upon you any more forcefully my lack of interest in dismantling small engines, my favorite way of changing the plug in the mower is going to the shop and buying a new mower. I have about a million things I have to do, why I started doing this? I don't know....... undecided

The last time I saw something like that was when my brother and his friend filled the mower with methanol and a race plug to get a laugh.
The gardener bolted and we never saw him again. grin grin grin grin

How elegantly stated.  Did you, in a previous incarnation, perhaps write ad copy? rolleyes
