TLH up & running. Carb off to be cleaned, so just running off bursts of spray can carb cleaner. The bore wasn't worn at all! No smoke either. Will get carb cleaned & back on is a day or so.
You'd never believe how I rigged up the points off a TVM220 Tec engine, so I'll just hafta take a pic & post it tomorrow. Gotta get out to milk the cows now.

Well when I went to take carb apart, with the best of care, the main jet screw broke off in her! Took a lot of tedious work to drill it out, then make another screw shaft one size larger as threads were damaged a bit. Got it all cleaned & back together. She runs like a champ! Smokes a bit, but after 50yrs I'd expect as much. Governor works great too. She'll sit & idle as well as a new one. Now you let a new one sit for just a couple years & it'll never run again without major money spent. Spent zero dollars to get this one going. That's why I like the old stuff! When I have the engine cover off, I'll take flywheel off & take a pic of my points system & post it.
