The 10546 I bought with a thrown rod is now cutting grass again! See the story here if you don't know it: http://www.mytractorforum.com/showthread.php?t=139895

I got a rebuild kit off of eBay, and a donor connecting rod from another engine I had. I really, really wanted to use the cylinder from that engine because it was in such good shape, but I discovered the hard way that not all "F" engine parts are interchangeable.

Here's the video, but my camera accidentally got put on "macro" focus. Hopefully, it doesn't take anything away from the thrill of the moment.

You could lean that out a little. Is that a Travelall or a PU in the background?
I agree with you 100%, but this is one a them modrun carburetors that doesn't have any provision for adjustment. Maybe some would disagree with me, but I'd retrofit just about every machine I own with a metal Walbro if I could.

That's a '67 pickup. 3/4 ton.

Great job! I love the sound of a running Lawn-boy. Does it make me nuts if I just want to run them just to hear it run? :sidelaugh
