Right. Never ever even thought of mango as a wood until now. Cool might do me some learning
My sister's ex is a New Zealander. When they flew to Michigan for my niece's wedding, they thought the cake stand I made from mango reminded them of kauri wood. Only crappy pic I have.

Far out that is really nice. Kauri is nice wood so thats a pretty good compliment. Ridiculously slow growing even here where trees grow like grass. Love that deep colour

Spent a bit of time straightening this out again. Had to replace the tank pickup line. Saw it sucking air into the carb. The 1 year old tygon line pulled off the barb way too easy. New Echo line fixed that. Then a clutch spring broke, followed by the recoil spring.

Hey guys. Any of you blokes into danarms??

I've got an uncle with a 55 and a 171ss. imagejpeg_3(3).jpg imagejpeg_2(6).jpg
Over all its fairly tidy and runs well except...


The muffler is poked and to far gone to patch up so I was wondering if any of you fine gentlemen know of a parts source for a muffler.

I have a bunch of McCulloch's and parts are generally not an issue but I can't find nothing anywhere for this. Does anyone here have an idea?? If not I'll have to build 1 for it and not the end of the world but thought it was worth an ask

Cool, those cabovers came with so many drivetrain combo's it's just amazing. From small straight six Chevys to V12 gas engines to big Cummins, Cats, & Detroits and everything inbetween.
Sorry for the late reply , its a 350 small block 4 speed trans with a two speed rear axle

Pretty cool. I would loved if it had a 6v53 Detroit diesel. Two cycle Detroit's are my favorite engines
Scream'n Jimmy's are cool for sure. My C65 cabover had a 366 & Clark 5 spd, single speed rear. When the govenor stopped working that truck would move pretty good with passenger car heads and that Holly 600. At 12k lbs empty it was quicker than my buddies motorhome with a 413. Pretty slow an any hill though.

Have you pulled the muffler and inspected the rings and measured the piston to verify its a 3700. I've got one 3400 bow but I've got a 3700 top end on it. Can't go by the labels sometimes.

I’m working on this poulan farm pro 375. Crankshaft is rusted up, so I’m hoping to use the crank out of a poulan 3400 or 3800, I’ve got a saw with compression that is low that I can rob parts from.

I did some work on this, I got it to run on choke but it looks like the fuel pump isn’t pumping fuel as good as it should, so after the first of the year, I’ll put a new fuel pump on it and see what it does.
