I suppose some of you have been following my Duraforce rebuild drama. Well I finished it all up Friday put it back together and decided to let all the sealants cure for a day-and let it sit all day yesterday while I did some flood damage control from a few weeks ago.

I went out this morning added some gas/LB oil I mixed about 5.5 ounces per gallon instead of 4 and gave it a pull. Here's what happened.

I let it run at varying rpms for about 10-15 minutes. I will run it under load this week when I cut the grass. Thank the Lord no leaks, no surging, no vibrations, no rattling....:00000033:

Congratulations! We all knew you could do it. Good job.

All in all, pretty easy task for you?

Thanks Brad. Yes. I took my time. Did it in small increments and yes it was easier than I thought. I learned a few things to do next time but all in all I am confident that it went together just about as well as I coul dhave hoped.

Very nice sounding DuraForce, good job. Is that a Tiny Tach?
Thanks Toby. Yes is a micro Tach. Use it for motorcycles, weedeaters, LBs and other small engines. I think it goes to 18,500 rpms.
