Glad all that work you put into that repower had good results...with all you move around I would consider finding an old boat trailer that are always being given away for free on Craigslist and modify it to pull bigger loads of wood from work area to your fireplace...
I've tried a variety of things for that job: everything from the back of a Ford Explorer, to a wheelbarrow, to a 10 cuft cart, to the (red) 17 cuft cart with sides, to an ice fishing sled.
Due to the layout of my backyard (lots of trees and large rocks), the 10 cuft cart seems to be the right combination of maneuverability and efficiency. A 17 cuft cart without sides would probably be better.
I do have a 6x10 open utility trailer, but that's much too big for the job. That's the trailer I use to get logs home (and I'd love that to be at least 2 feet longer).
Another 30 minutes yesterday, up to 16 hours now. The Predator started on the first pull once again, temps in the 50s.
One thing I've noticed, but keep forgetting to mention: occasionally after shutting the engine down briefly (to stack wood, get more, take a bio break, etc.), it doesn't restart on the first pull, and sometimes takes several pulls. Typically when that happens, it also backfires out the exhaust.
Hi... I recently bought a simplicity sno away 32" for $75, the owner said he couldn't get the engine to turn over. It looked in decent shape and for $75 I could at least part it out and get my money back if I couldn't fix it. Anyway I removed the spark plug and the could see the piston was half...

I'm trying to find a replacement...
Will a modern Quantom push mower engine fit this old 5 horses bolt pattern? Another concern is the hole size in the Lazy Boy frame. I am thinking a Quantom sits into the large frame hole. Not flat on the bottom. I dont have this mower yet.Weighing my repair options.
I have a 1980 Troy Bilt Horse tiller. It has a Kohler K161 7 HP engine spec # 281271j.
It had spark and would fire up briefly with starter fluid sprayed in intake. The carb was completely filled with crud. I have cleaned and serviced the carb with a new rebuild kit. It looks new now.
So I have a '67 HD 112 round fender and it's been burning oil, motor was changed at some point and from a facebook group I've come to find it's from the next gen 112s. Finally got a chance to look into it so I pulled the spark plug. Noticed a bunch of tan deposits on the plug and in the head...
