Since alot of people seemed to like the post I made about how I am working on my pasquali I decided I would start an off topic thread on the project if there is interest in seeing a non wood gas project. Saddly this motor isn’t a good candidate for a gasificer but I do plain on using it to get wood… I know that is a stretch for putting it up here
Anyway my friend who is a mechanic was here the last couple of days we made a lot of progress on getting the shop in the back of my barn setup. I found out the roof is worse then I thought and there is and entore rafter I need to replace before snow comes too… one more project for the long list.
But back to the tractor the he got the motor apart yesterday the upper end doesn’t look too bad about like you would expect from a motor burning oil. I need to get a spring compressor so I can pull valves but it that part doesn’t look bad the cylinders look good no damage there. Now for the bad part. The crank has issues. One of the bearings was totally gone just flakes. I don’t know right now if the crank can be turned down and saved or not. Won’t know till after I can call Monday and find out what oversized bearing are available for it.
So anyway that is about all the news from here now. I have hay baled up in the field to go haul and I don’t know if I will mow more today or not crazy busy right now.
