OK...OK... I went out in the rain (expecting snow later on) and took a couple of photos. The first is the 11" makeshift extension that I removed. The markings on it are where it was bolted to the stabilizer and the other end where it was fastened to the truck cross member. The second is the end that mounted to the bolster. You can see where it was “heated” and precision bent for proper alignment . The third is the end that mounts to the truck cross member. You can see where it was also “heated” and precision bent for proper alignment. Both ends were a bit twisted and bent so I had to do both . Things get hot and from time to time, with trials and errors abounding, here in NJ, while having fun on the way through.

Busy doing other "stuff" in the garage today, but managed to get out in the cold and jack up the front end of the trucks. I pulled the wheels, wire brushed the dry, rusty axel and wheel hubs before greasing them up . While I was greasy , I did the bolster plate, pins, etc.. Things sure work smother and easier with a bit of the old, red axel/bearing grease I picked up awhile back (45#'s still left in the original 20 gallon drum ). I pulled the other wheels, and there was still grease in them so I left well enough alone and went back inside where it was warmer.

Today I went to the old battery box shelf in the barn and found me a nice IHC battery/tool box to use on the Titan . Only problem is, I need to fill the space between the rails with a piece of wood 4 ½” W x 6 ½” H x 20" L with tapered edges, and with a hole completely through it for the ¾” frame bolt. I need this so that I can mount the box support brackets and the battery/tool box. I looked around in the wood pile , but I don’t have what I need. I guess most folks don’t have that handy either… . I see another custom wood working project coming sooner than I think..

Sooner came sooner than expected, as I found Later on, 3 pieces of 2” x 8” that put together will give me the 4 1/2” thickness I need without cutting, and some other wood I can use for the seat, and seat supports(another custom wood project to be addressed sometime). I set up the radial saw and trimmed the 3 pieces to the 20” length I need to fit between the truck rails, and then ripped them to 6 ½” high. Since I don’t have a 2 foot ¾” wood bit to drill the hole where it needs to be (probably would be off center anyway ) I needed another way. Easy to do I say, and after some careful measurements I cut out a channel ½” deep in the front board and the middle board where the bolt would go through by making a few passes on the saw and then cleaning up the groove with the trusty, sharp 1” wood chisel. I came up with a nice 1“square hole just in case I was off a bit (me, off a bit-sometimes ). I then screwed the three boards together. I made a cardboard template of the frame rails and transferred that to the 4 ½" x 6 ½" x 20 "piece of wood I now have. A couple of passes with the cutoff saw on each corner and a bit of chisel work I got the iron channel tapers right. A trial fit showed it was good, but I forgot about the nut under the screen cooler platform that holds it in place . A few quick passes with the cutoff saw made me a nice slot for it. I then drove it in place and believe it or not, the frame bolt went right through without a problem . Next I need to put the brackets in place and mount the battery box, but that’s for another day

Check post 50 and you will see the mixer . It's the air intake opening through the mixer . The small brass tube is the fuel pickup from the fuel needle valve and fuel bowl on the mixer. On the intake stroke the air is sucked through this opening past this tube and pulls fuel through it by the vacuum created by the air flow into the engine. If the needle valve is closed, no fuel, no run. If the needle valve is open to much, to much fuel is drawn in and you get a lot of black smoke (to rich), etc.... The spring inside is part of the running engine mixer choke system in addition to the choke in the intake pipe. This opening is roughly 1 7/8" that allows a lot of air to be drawn into the engine. Maybe to much to run a T/G'd engine slow . I guess I'll find out.... one of these days....

The back nut that holds the igniter/magneto bracket in place is a bear to get at . You can get a 7/8 open end wrench on it, but you have a very limited rotation. It just doesn’t work well in this tight place. The 7/8” box is better, but just a bit thick to slide down in between the igniter trip spring and push rod and over the nut on the igniter. Soooooo what is one to do, again, improvise. I took the extra 7/8” Superwrench I had and ground off the boss, about 1/8” on one side and rounded the edges off a bit. Now it slides down, in between all that stuff and onto the nut like it was greased. Sure works good for me, even in NJ, on the way through, where the cold weather is a coming. DARN…….

The first photo is of the nut, the second the modified wrench, and the third the wrench on the nut. NICE HUH…. .

Got to looking at that IHC red battery/toolbox and decided it doesn't look right with the engine. But what is one to do . I went looking around and found one that looks better with the engine as it is , and put it on in place of the red one .

The big fuel tank arrived at Coolspring and now needs to be installed. In looking at the old one, it sure looks repairable to me , and I'll try to do that before I put the new one in . Here is a photo of the old and new one. Starting to think this big boy is a bit big for me, and just might become available, SOON . If interested in this 10 HP IHC Titan portable,(I'll consider offers/trades) send me a PM. THANKS-




Of course it pumps water across the screen as seen in previous photos in this post.

Trying to get it running slower , but it just doesn't want to get much below 100RPM . Like I said before, it's a bit big for me, and it's available. I would take quality models I don't have in a fair value trade. If interested, PM me on Harry's, or send me an email.

Friday it was time to say out with the old and in with the new fuel tank. I put the hangers in place and hung the tank which was the easy part. Then came the task of pluming the tank lines to the fuel pump, fill and overflow from the mixer. Sure was fun as none of the ¼” piping were standard nipples . It took a few hours of measuring, cutting, threading and doing it all over again to get the right fit. Once done, I added gas, pumped up the fuel to the mixer and had no leaks, except for the bottom rear corner of the tank where the seam wasn’t folded tight when soldered . Anyway, the new prospective owner showed up Sunday morning, saw that the tank was installed, checked it carefully over again, we pumped up the fuel, set the mixer, oiled it up, and he started it on the first cycle, played with it a bit, shut it down and said “SOLD” .
