Bought this 1811 awhile back one head was off and if you turned it over, the valves never moved. I was looking at E-bay and saw a cam for a super come up did the parts tree thing and turned out was the same.Long story short got it for 15 bucks and thought I would take a chance and just swap it in. Pulled it all down found the governor flew apart and broke the cam.So I replaced the governor (used) and put in the used cam and buttoned it all up and crossed my fingers. had sat for 2 years before this but as soon as It got some good fuel in the carb she started right up. Runs strong and has lots of power but makes a weird noise I'm thinking it's the teeth on the crank are a little messed up from the cam breaking. I guess I'll run it some and see if it gets better has good oil pressure (has oil sentry) and runs cool since I have next to nothing in the engine I thought it was worth a shot.Here's a few pics of the cam and engine back in it. Another thing ,anyone have a pic of how the throttle cable mounts on the engine it was off when I got it and I'm not sure I have it back on right.

Thanks all, Bob

What kind of weird noise is it?? They evoke fear just hearing about them! Just a thought- did you clean the crank bearings out when you had it apart? those little chunks of broken cam could be lurking around in there causing your noise..

When my m18 dropped the gov gear I bought a rebuilt long block. The rebuilder told me that they almost always crack the block webbing when they eat that gear. It did on mine.

Sqatch and WNY,Thanks for the replys first the noise is kinda hard to decribe but like I said with a screwdriver held in the block in different places to listen sounds like the gears (crank/cam) not a knocking or rattle it's more of a buzzing like loose engine tins but they are all tight, I have to admit I am much more used to the sound of my older single cylinder Cubs.When I took it apart I did inspect the case as best I could and cleaned a ton of gear teeth from the cam and governor out of it and flushed it well I had everthing out of the case sides .I ran it about an hour and dumped the oil and changed the filter .Still makes the noise but runs really good guess I will keep looking for a back up engine to keep''in the wings'' I have gotten really good at pulling this one in and out lol.

Thanks All, Bob
