She say's "EQUAL TIME" whatever that means . Anyway, pulled off the water pump. Got it apart and cleaned up. It was full of mud daubbers handiwork . The drain valve has a missing handle and valve lifter is also gone(both broken off and long gone). OH WELL... Took the fuel pump off, apart and cleaned. Just needs some brass check balls before assembly as the steel ones were a bit coroded. Also need to make a new 3/4" x 5 1/2" pump rod as its also a bit coroded and worn. Check the photos . Stopped at Fazios (steel supply) and picked up some flat stock, etc. needed. It rained all day here in NJ, but I still had fun...

Got busy for awhile(about an hour ) making chips after I found the 3/4" rod needed to make a fuel pump plunger for the Titan. Set up the mill and milled out the slot, turned the plunger 90 degrees and drilled out the pin hole. Attached is a fuzzy picture milling the slot and the second of the completed plunger. Now that the fuel pump is all together, I guess I'll go on to something else like the the magneto, bracket, igniter clean up .

I posted a separate thread.looking for a replacement for the broken throttle valve,

http://www.smokstak.com/forum/showthread.php?t=67893



but calls and emails to some folks resulted in ............... one positive response, send me the part and I'll make one for you. I want to tinker now. So what is one to do except be creative and make my own version. After some thought, why not like a throttle body valve on a Pontiac, except a lot bigger . Went to the heavy sheet metal parts drawer, pulled out a piece of 1/16". drew the outline, bent it over a 3/8" rod mandrell, located and drilled the mounting holes, trimmed it to shape (bigger than the outline) got the 4" grinder out and began the final shaping. After a few trial fits, some more grinding and beveling the edges I have a perfect fit. I'll secure the throttle plate with some some small round head machine screws and locktite, and I will be ready for more tinkering on the 10HP Titan. If this works out, I might send the original part out to be duplicated, or just put it in the 10HP Titan parts box .

Still on the trailer with the umbrella. I cleaned/repaired the mixer and put it back on the engine yesterday after I put the throttle valve in. Made a few adjustments and a new part for the throttle valve linkage. I'm working on the water pump (all apart/cleaned) and in the process of making the water pump drain unloader lever which was broken inside and the lever was missing . Need to address the "LOOSE" governor weights pivots, springs and a few other items. Might fuss with it again today as I have fun in NJ on the way through . HEY, it's not raining, and Corzine is "OUT" .

Dug around in the spare IHC parts pile and came up with these bolster pieces I needed. Just need about 2#'s of cast welding rod @ $36/# to fix it per the local welding shops. Checked with a couple of welders and got some ^$ quotes. I called a sandblaster/welder friend who said bring it over, and he can do it, and it won't cost much. So I did . Should be done in a day or so. Now to find the pivot that's around here someplace. Probably in a unmarked box. I know I have it . Didn't get much done today and it's dark already .

"The drain valve has a missing handle and valve lifter is also gone(both broken off and long gone)" I got the urge tonight and went in the shop and got busy. 1st. photo is what I had left and brass from the "brass box" to make what was missing. The second photo shows the work in progress, bored out the fitting a bit, machined the shaft with the shoulder, drilled a few holes and put in the offset lifter . The third photo shows the finished item after bending the lifter rod a bit to work properly, and ready to install . Making progress and having fun in NJ with the Yankeeys winning.

Spent some time having fun in NJ with the Titan today. Starts easily, and I'm working on slowing the "THROTTLER" down . No springs on the governor weights, throttle valve adjusted almost closed, timing retarded, crossover pipe from the exhaust to the mixer intake closed off, and got it to around 100rpm, but I want it a bit slower. She "BARKS" well and a slight adjustment of the exhaust valve rocker may quiet it down a bit. Still playing with it, and any suggestions on slowing this beast down would be appreciated .
