just pushed home

just finished putting brake pads on the car and was driving around the block to test. about 30 houses up a guy was putting this on the curb. I stopped and asked if he was tossing it he says yes, but it wont stay running after it starts. i parked the car and pushed it home. it has good compression, nothing in gearcase or auger is seized, and has good spark. quick check it appears that the carb is just gummed up. gas smells like turpentine.

Hope you can bring it alive and make a profit out of it. Should be a quick flip.

Since you have the whole summer you should take the time to check the valve clearance. That era 5hp Tec is well known for the exhaust having issues. Nice grab. On the way back from my parents today I saw a 3 legged Little Tikes table at the roadside with a sign, "Missing leg $5." Not sure if that was a reward offer to locate the missing leg, or if they really wanted $5 for a 3 legged toy table

It's always amazing what people will throw away and what others seem to think is gold.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
