With warm weather right around the corner, I prepped the Briggs for final coats of paint.


Anticipating being able to mount her back-up, I pulled-out the old iron fleet ...


...so that I could rearrange the shed and throw a set of chains on her.

Thanks T!

I'm excited to fire-up this old briggs again; her and her fancy new exhaust valve guide that I swapped out awhile back.

This is the tap/puller grabbing hold of the worn-out guide


Slipped out with minimal effort using the kit shown a few posts back.


The new one was pressed in until it bottomed-out and i used the supplied ream to get it to spec.

Final coats of Johnson Outboard paint on the old Briggs.

I like the almond tint ...gives it that vintage vibe





...the big question will be how well this paint holds up to fuel spills.

I did some welding on the chute and re-mounted the original '69 Briggs yesterday (off for exhaust valve guide replacement and repaint):


I'm trying this more modern muffler / deflector mainly to keep the exhaust out of my face when i'm making carb adjustments (getting to the idle mixture screw is a royal PITA).


This engine is the easiest I've ever had to start... pops-off about 1/2 way through the 1st pull.

If I want to keep this muffler, i need to enlarge the muffler hole a bit as it melted the outboard paint where it was touching:


Don't worry about the soot...it was running really rich when it first fired-up and i had moly coating the valve stem from the valve guide replacement.

that sucks cranman! the slide-gear transmission looks pretty straightforward. the most complexity i see in the parts breakdown is the planetary gear assembly that they call the "low speed pulley" connected to the transmission input shaft. You have to keep it pumped-up with grease.

My only transmission issue is that I can't seem to get the fill-level plug off so I've been filling it with SAE30 by eyeballing-it through the fill-hole...erring on the high-side of course.

I'm torn on which new tire to put on this beast; I love the look of xtrac but there isn't a 14" on a 6" RIM; only 13x4, 13x5 and 15x5.

The slide-gear transmission / diff should be able to handle more torque of larger diameter, and the 3rd gear speed will increase (it needs that) at the expense of the 1st gear...which is already pretty fast; not much of a creeper speed on this guy.

The only other option would be a 14" superLug (Ag style) but I've never used Ag tires in snow.

thoughts?

Replaced the exhaust valve guide AGAIN on the old Briggs flatty (‘1969 7HP).
Alice...Sweet Allis-f153ad20-b8a2-4048-9559-4758556c45b6_1576444713557.jpeg

Last time I did it, after reaming it still had slop even with a brand new valve.

This time I didn’t ream and it’s perfect; The tiniest amount of play.

Now no black cloud at starting/warm-up.

I’m excited to put this machine back into service (once I decide on what kicks to put on her...above post!)
