    Went to my grandpas today to drop a big dead maple that he said had been struck by lightning.

    20191109_161558.jpg I jumped at the chance to cut it down to play with my MS461.

    Anyway, on the way there, passed a house with their trash out at the curb. Out of the corner of my eye, I spotted the familiar glow of orange and white. I whipped the truck around and had my son jump out and grab it before all the neighbors looked at the weirdo dumpster diving.

    This is what I got. An FS45.
    20191109_180640.jpg I pulled the cord and it pulled HARD. I thought the motor seized up. But figured it would be more practice for me on repairing small engines.

    First thing I did was pulled the muffler. Expecting the worst, I was shocked to see it was perfect inside. Not a hint of scoring.

    Turned the flywheel by hand, and it cranked over easier. There is a small plug on the muffler where the spark arrestor is. I removed the plug, put it back together and verified spark.

    Put some fuel in it, and primed it. The bulb filled right up.

    Sprayed a little blast of starter fluid in the carb, and she purred like a kitten for a few minutes. Shes a runner, but I know she needs her carb cleaned. I will do that tomorrow and see how she runs.

    This thing looks brand new. I'm betting it was used one season, sat with gas in it, and gummed up the carb, so to the trash it went.

    The old Farmalls are great tractors. Easy to work on and will run forever. Never used a Cub model but we had a model H when I lived at home and the first house I rented the owner had a model A which I used when helping him around the farm. The model A is a little bigger than the Cub.
    For $1000 in restored condition, it’s a excellent price. I think they’re around 11 PTO horsepower but the way they’re geared, you’ll be surprised what it can do. I think hydraulics was a factory option and if it had them, they’d be one way and not live. They’ll plow snow fine unless it’s a large accumulation, then they just don’t have enough weight in the front end.

    Check the muffler screen on that trimmer, they like to clog.

    Yeah, I pulled the screen and it wasnt too bad, but not great. It still didnt want to run right.

    The pumpnside diaphram was curling up. Instead of rebuilding the carb, I decided to buy a cheapy off of amazon.

    Put it on just a second ago and it fired on the second pull and runs great.

    Cant beat it for the $14 invested. Now I can get two kids weed eating at the same time.

    Cause that's what seems good to them. Come to think of it, all the 026's I've seen have 20 inch bars on them too, I think. I've also seen a 28 inch bar on an 036, as well as a 24 inch bar on an 045 Super.
