Recheck after some run time.

Take your time and be logical. You can do this.
Yea I get it but its a single cyl. T head and the main thing and why its seeming so complicated and I have so many questions is Im just now putting the whole tractor back together. 85% of it is still scattered everywhere.
Thanks Im goin out there right now and setting them. Just got home from work.
