I guess I'll take an iced coffee Freddy, since I got here late, everyone's gone, & it's cold. My best to you and Marty - some warmer weather is on the way. Enjoy it.
There's plenty to do on the internet Fred!
Stay outta trouble now!
Weather was crap this morning. Got rained on a couple times, then sun peeked through, then more rain. By the afternoon there wasn't a could in the sky. Awesome. Bluebirds moved into the birdhouse I nailed to my porch - was watching them go in and out with food. The male would find something and "hand" it off to the female - looked like they were sucking face up on the wire there.
Spent the whole day working on just 2 weedwackers - a Kawasaki & an Echo. Both ended up very time consuming. I might have mentioned the Kawi last coffee .. but the parts I needed came today for the Echo, and I finally got that damn Zama carb to do what it's supposed to. Was a time-consuming pain in the ass. Another crap design. The Kioritz built ones had much better carburetors. So far I'm not impressed with Yamabiko, although the engines themselves seem to be as well built as the Kioritz ones. It runs now, and that's all I care about.
That Kawi got new crank bearings and seals. I took some front wheel bearings for a Yamaha BW80 that I had unopened in a box, pried the seals out of them, and installed them in the case halves, along with the new crank seals. Assembled the engine, and cleaned up my entire yard with it. Once I removed the exhaust screen & repaired a fuel line, it ran perfect. Hate those non-adjustable EPA carbs ...
Time to relax.
Have a good night everyone.
Oh, almost forgot the pic of the gigantic piston/crank assembly from the Kawasaki weedwacker!
