And Wow!!! Talk about power! And nothing leaks and NO smoke! No fouled plugs! I even found a brand new Stanley muffler on sale for it at the local farm store for $15. I've been breaking it in by driving around the neighborhood and I'm like a dog with its head out the window. Its just too much fun. To the people who suggested to not just do a ring job and to be aware of excess wear on the sleeves - thank you. I am so pleased with the way it turned out. What a fun and rewarding project! Last winter this poor beast couldn't even pull itself around, let alone blade snow. But now there will be no more walking behind the snowblower clearing the lane for this boy.
