I'm gonna let my DAUGHTERS use this, so 5hp is PLENTY for them... lol

Worked on it today, I think the carb is ready, did a tune up on it, and replaced all the bad pieces. Put in a new air filter, new rubber hose pieces, and got fresh oil in the engine. Took the head off and cylinder walls look good, valves look good, cleaned out the carbon build up, and lined the cylinder wall with oil. Put in a new plug, and got the rust out of the gas tank.

Tried to fire it up, but I wasn't getting a spark... So I gotta figure that out...

Very fun project. Nice score on the price. As for the engine, don't go to big. Right around 8 horse the shaft jumps to 1", not only does the shaft jump but the cost for a clutch also does. Over $100 if I remember correctly.
