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.
