The engine has the head, carb and flywheel off it. I have a carb kit and head gasket for it. I de carboned the head and I think the rest of the engine is OK. It is a replacement short block but you can't tell from the number how old it is. The head could go back on any time. I still need to paint the engine. I need a flywheel screen if anyone has a spare to sell. It's an electric start model with headlights. The dash was in good shape and the nose piece was almost cracked in half but I repaired it with some advice from Daniel way back in 2009 when we both hung out on another forum. The grill and other front end trim parts are all painted and ready to install. I just got a deck shell so that is another problem solved. I just cleaned the garage up and moved the 8 to that space. With the 314 in there this winter it is going to be tight.IamSherwood said:Looks good Brian. Time to put the power back in it?
Ps. your shop is too clean.
Kenny. I normally keep it covered with a tarp to prevent it from catching cold.KennyP said:
What can I say! I got sidetracked with a couple other hobbies for a while, then the poor 8 got sideswiped by the JD314 that I thought would be done by June. If you look real close you'll see the green paint where the 8 got shoved aside. My plan was to have it finished this year. That has been revised to next year ... unless... it gets delayed by a Ford or Bolens or Cub Cadet or Case or ........Whatever.KennyP said:Brian, glad you have her covered most of the time. Good luck with the rest of it. If I have this figured right, you'll be done about 2015.:bigrofl:
