Now that the engines for the DYT4000 and the Murray 14.5 Hybrid are finished it is time to get back to this engine disassembled in May. Now that the 12.5/40 is a parts tractor it is clear this engine should go to go-putz. This is a 11hp engine but with the crank, cam, and carb from go-putz it will be 13HP. I will keep go-putz's pull start and engine ID. So maybe this thread should use go-putz's engines ID.
Go-putz's engine was torn down December 2014 and has a worn out cylinder bore.
To rebuild it I will use the block and piston from engine 28M707 1186-E1 9711197A which came from Sid's Snapper ZT with a busted rod. The bore has .oo4" wear so it can be used as is.
I have the gasket set for this engine which includes the head gasket.
The con rod is broken. I hesitate to use a used one because the good ones are in engines with worn out bores so maybe a lot of hours. Should look at the big rod end for wear. Part # 494504S tractor list on amazon about $50. Rod bolt lock is not amazon prime. Old one? Need to make up my mind on both of these issues. With only $50 at stake I would like to get the rod.
No plans to do this soon but it needed to be sorted.
