Tomorrow came (TODAY ), and went with little done . Off doing other things like the dentist, local mower shop, steel shop, John Deere dealer, pick up welded bolster, take the wife out to lunch, fix the mower and cut the grass, look for wheels for a friend, go to the flea market, etc, etc.... Here are a few more photos, welded bolster parts, steel and bolts, fuel tank installed, fuel pump & hoses, and the overflow pipe . I want to plum the cooling system next, but who knows what tomorrow will bring. Still, having fun, even in NJ .

Connected up the cooling lines to the tank, put water in it, and yes the old piping "LEAKS", and the pump doesn't pump . What doesn't leak is full of rust. I got 1#+ of rust out of the lines/fittings. No wonder it won't pump . I crushed one pipe getting it off , twisted another one off at the fitting and the union is bad, and now no more smilies...., and all of the 94 year old pipes are off and cleaned out. Flushed & back flushed the cylinder. Going out in the morning for the appropriate black pipe needed for the fix. Hopefully all the old fittings will be OK. Just didn't get a chance to clean them up and see... All in a day's fun, even in NJ.

$16.29 later, and after Thanksgiving lunch with one of the grandaughters at school with the Mom and Dad(somehow I paid again ), most of the piping has been put back. Somehow I missed a 4" piece I needed. So back tomorrow for that after the flea market, pizza for breakfast, JD dealer for the right mower belt, over to the grandaughters to repair some furniture , blow some leaves around, etc, etc... I might get a chance to finish it before it gets dark . OH WELL another long day, keeping busy, and just having fun, even in NJ...

KK showed up just driving around as I was blowing leaves in the wind. We traded off some stuff and he was on his way, and I finished blowing leaves in the wind. After doing all that stuff yesterday and picking up the 4" pipe I needed, I worked on the Titan a bit today. The piping doesn't really line up right. Seems I'm off another 1/2" on one of the pipes. Dug around in the 1" pipe bin and found what I needed on a pipe "tree" and took it apart. Now when I tighten things down the pump plunger and pump eccentric is off about 1/16". It got dark again , so tomorrow I'll loosen the pump bracket, pump, the union and tighten things up the other way. Set the eccentric and the pump plunger so it's loose, tighten the pump on the bracket and then tighten the pump bracket, or do it another way . I'll get it in time (what's the hurry, I'm retired) so the pump eccentric is in alighnment and not binding. Yes, I'm still having fun, at least for awhile, even in NJ .

Well, I worked on it a bit today, and here is a video(taken with my "rose" colored camera) of it running in my back yard around 100rpm +/- . The water pump doesn't seem to want to pump across the screen but sure will put a stream of water out the air relief petcock. Seems like it's missing a check valve or something . I'll get it , one of these days, and got that YouTube thingy down......... Almost forgot, I'm having fun, even in NJ on the way through....

Hi Bill: Yes the video was taken with the "rose" colored camera on low resolution(sorry folks, but....). I still "had" problems lining up the hard lines to water pump, the union and getting the eccentric loose all at the same time. I took out the union... rubber hose replaced it , problem solved . I pulled the pump innards apart, made some "technical" changes after I looked at the parts layout in the IHC repair parts manual #9, and studied how it all works. It should pump, still . More to come as progress is being made daily.

I put the pump all back together, sealed the parts that should be (seats in the casting), the valves do there thing, and it should work . Then I pulled the mixer off to do some repairs to the old fix (globs of braze) where the mixer had gotten broken sometime in its life. When it was brazed, the parts were not quite lined up and the machined parts (flats) were not “flat” and didn’t seal on the mixer parts, and to the head, and a couple of screw holes didn't line up. I got the file out “not”, thought about the mill (don’t want to do the set up), and then “DUH” why not just use the belt sander to flatten the surfaces like I've done on other things. Here are two photos of the surfaces now . It took all of 2-3 minutes on the belt sander taking off just enough to make them "flat". Then I took some epoxy and filled in any cracks that I could find. Now to make some gaskets, put it back together and work on the intake a bit.
