Paul, Mike asked you a question or is that bag of goodies gone your buddy brought over. Now if you would have asked to move that heavy old engine I would have come over and saved you the back problems. Get that pink camera out and show us a movie.

Kevin, even if Paul didn't want help moving it, he should have at least called you over to take a video of him moving the engine by himself.

The wife asked if I needed help, went inside, and came out when I was done . She was the smart one . Video will come when I get the cooling system set up and checked for "leaks" . Don't want to run/adjust the throttler to much without cooling as it can get hot quickly. Need to put the fuel pump back on and jury rig the piping after getting a temporarly fuel tank while waiting for the new tank to show up.

Just to let the engine world no this engine now sits on Pauls back patio. I about crapped when he told me this. He stated, (hey there's work to be done). Thank god the back door is'nt any bigger I think that engine would be in the livingroom if he had is way. Paul did Sandy lock the door when she went back in the house?
Well we all no where Paul's weekness is. (IHC)

I made sawdust today and finished up the screen cooler tank platform. Stained it and mounted it on the frame. Put the tank on it Looking good . Need to locate and hook up the mounting rods, saw out the drain plug hole, connect the piping then add water and see if I have any leaks . Maybe tomorrow. Then to work on the temporary tank (a B & S 8hp tank), hook up the fuel pump and see how that works. Have a Pinelands Engine Club meeting tonight and have my show & tell box "O" stuff ready to share with the others . Going to be another good night while having fun, even in NJ on the way through .

I don't want to hijack a thread and wanted to post a 'newbie' thread and spent way too much time trying to figure how to and now have given up. Sorry to change the subject but I have a newbie question that ,amazingly I haven't found on this site. Would somebody share either how to start a new thread or answer me this; what are the origins of the throttle governed engine? How early did they come about and who was responsible?

Sure is a lousey, cold (45-F), rainey, windy day in NJ , "BUT" here is a picture of the fuel pump mounted and some parts I picked up at the Home Depot I think I needed before the engine club meeting last night. A friend, asked me to help unload an old box of old tools he brought to sell for $10 at the meeting. The box never made it inside and I'm $10 shorter, "BUT" now I have something else to do "inside" . Check out that Sears centrifigual pump, and that old wrench, and that , I can hardly wait to sort through it.

Maybe a moderator can help out whitefarms with his problem ?

I Went to the flea market this morning and stopped at my sonís place on the way home. The next thing I knew we were hunting garage sales with kids, all loaded in his 1966 VW bus. I didnít get home till 1:45pm.. . Then I started hooking up the temporary fuel lines and found that the mixer overflow/return pipe into the mixer was AWOL. Thought about it and went into the "old" pipe box and came up with one that came out of a previous engine. A little trimming and pipe threading and it was done. The B & S 8hp temporary tank was hooked up and plastic lines run to the fuel pump and mixer. Put gas in the tank, and it started leaking out . What the... found the riveted/soldered outlet on the bottom was cracked 3/4 of the way around with another 1" crack in the bottom of the tank. all hidden by some old grease/dirt, darn. Back to the old mower repair shed and found me a good Bunton tank (checked it first). Hooked it all up, cycled the fuel pump (it works) with no leaks. I ran the Titan a bit, but I have to get the cooling tank fastened down and hooked up because the throttler gets warm quickly. I located and drilled the holes for the screen cooler mounting rodís, and drain plug hole. I fastened the screen cooler down and put in the drain pipe just as it got dark . Still, Iím having fun, even in NJ on the way through. More to do tomorrowÖ
