    looks like a fairly complete, nice solid project.
    pretty sure the seat is a 21-23 type. my 19J has the exposed springs while yours has the later enclosed type.

    "The centrifugal switch on the back of the 235 generator that disconnects it from the battery when the engine stops. The plate that holds the weights is mounted to the back end of the armature shaft with a countersunk screw. That screw is 1/4"-32 RH thread. A monkey with tools had cross threaded that screw sometime in the past and booggered it up so it wouldn't tighten the plate and the whole assembly was flopping around in there."
    Thanks for the clarification. I'm up to speed now.
    Good luck with the project, a great piece to start with.

    The story I got from the man that owns it is he traded a station wagon for it 50yrs ago and has kept it in his garage since and never heard it run.
    That was my task but after firing it up I discovered the front cyl. was cracked just below the head area. Sprayed oil on the downtube.
    Pulled the motor and front cyl. to find the rod could be shaken up and down about .010" Pulled the bottom apart and pretty much everything is worn out. I think I can reuse the right side bushing with a new pinion shaft and the left race with a new sprocket shaft and .003 over rollers. Competition Dist. is gonna love me!

    Well the Tecumseh piston idea was a bust. The wrist pin could be made to fit but the compression height is almost 5/8" too low,reckon I'll be making pistons too. Anybody got an 8" piece of 3.5 2618 aluminum round stock laying around?

    You could also speak to JD Jugs in Oz, they are very helpful. I am not sure what pistons they use but would be willing to guess at JP.

    Nope! He ain't got 'em in .020 over. Competition only has .010 and .060

    Yeah,knuck pistons can be used if you bush the pin holes down to .625" I'm guessing the same for 61" pan.
