Saved Another One

Got This 824 Powershift in. Engine Was Cycling, and New Carb helped, but didn't solve it completely. Valve Clearances needed attention as well, and had some blowby. I then decided to just drop another Engine on it. I probably would have just parted it out, except it has the Differential Axle which was the deciding Factor in Saving it.

Great save Jack.....I find the Powershifts are a hard sell now too....got to look like a MTD or newer Ariens to get interest.

Good score Jack.....But I agree, they are tough to move,,,Even all shined up. They are heavy machines. Does that actually have the differential kit in it?? I have a twin to that unit here. Owned by an older woman that complained about it's mobility. Found the axle stuck in the rear position....So problem 1 is solved. But she would be willing to go with a Diff kit if I can find one.

Thanx, Jay
