Should be a bumper-crop o' honey for Lisa this summer! Nice! I find myself sometimes at 3am dipping a spoon in our store-bought honey jar ..
Good stuff ... but I'd rather the fresh stuff.
At least your not runnin' that bread truck through the mean streets of MA, Lightning - that makes for a not-so-fun day, no matter what your driving. Worse with a TT, I can tell ya that much! People like to drive under your trailer ...
Thanks Chris! Yeah I couldn't pass up 2 Volvo's for$1,200. Finally got the title for one of them - still waiting for the other ... but I have their plates as leverage ...
Here's just a couple of the latest projects I've got going on - a '91 Correct Craft Ski Nautique with a 351
, & a Kubota TG1860 gas lawn tractor - liquid cooled Kawi twin w/power steering and rear shocks!! Quiet & smooth.
The Ski Nautique wouldn't start - would fire for a second, then die. Attempts to restart resulted in flames out the intake, and epic explosions out the exhaust - sent the flapper shooting 50' across the driveway! Suspected ignition right off the bat, but it's got some fancy electronic B/S ignition with a billion wires in it ... so I gave the carb a cleaning, and fixed a vacuum leak out of the lower spacer gasket. Once I got it running, it ran beautiful after fixing the choke, adjusting the accelerator pump arm, & making some idle mixture adjustments. But, when you shut it down, it will NOT restart. Then suddenly, it will! Electronics for ya. They make a nice Mallory 3 wire, with everything totally enclosed in the one unit - no need for a spark box ... but it requires a different gear for the Windsor engine, and it costs north of $400 ...
The Kubota hasn't run since last fall. Battery had 6v, and tire was flat. Was fun getting that sucker on the trailer ... used a tie down strap, one half inch at a time .... but I got it here! Has a little oil leak. Leaked all winter long right on the exhaust manifold. Who says the japs build better engines?!
It's actually a really great engine - just has some weepy gaskets. To be expected for a 16 year old unit. Thing is a JOY to drive!! Power steering is FANTASTIC. This is one well-built unit. Feels like your driving a Cadillac around your yard.
I worked on a high-end '94 Cub Cadet last spring with a hydraulic deck, power steering & the whole 9 - I like this one better.
