Hi all, new to the forum and am getting started refurbishing a 1971 Bolens G8 (813) stamped frame. B&S 8hp runs well enough, but puffs a little blue on start and throttle up so thinking probably valve guides and possibly tired rings as well, but I'm just going to run it for now. Everything works now that I have redone the wiring and replaced a bad starter solenoid. Here's the before picture, and I hope to have it stripped down, all mechanicals gone through, and fresh paint by June. Looking forward to chatting with you.
