Hi all, I got the machine home yesterday. First thing the hornets and wasps came out of everywhere as soon as it hit the ground. I sprayed it with wasp spray and killed the ones flying around, next I went to the hardware and bought a roll of plastic and a 6 pack of foggers. I put all of them under it this morning and left it tented for 3 hours. So far so good. Next I familiarized myself with it verifying everything still moves. The first task is to get the pony motor going which at first glance is going involve the fuel tank cleaning, carburetor clean or rebuild and the magneto doesn't spark, it turns over and has compression. Next I engaged the pony to the main Diesel engine and turned it over with the pony motor starter wheel. The fuel tank is at least 1/2 full of diesel and had the fuel valve left on. I cracked the line at the lift pump and good fuel came out with no water. The oil in the main engine is over full and I am assuming that is where the other half of the fuel is. Thats OK though because thats likely what kept it from locking up from setting. I started taking the cowling off to expose the pony motor, then it got too hot to work in the sun. Tomorrow morning I would like to get the pony motor exposed and get the gas tank, magneto and carburetor off so I can start working on them. After that I will go after draining the main engine and clean the oil pick up screen in the bottom of the oil pan. Also remove the radiator clean it and inspect it. The cap is missing and its full of crap, plus the reason given for parking it was the fan belt broke and there is not enough room between the radiator and fan to get it in. Those tasks won't take long and I will likely still be waiting on parts to get the pony motor going. I will post pictures as I go.
