Re: Ignition / distrubutor problems??

GO TEAM JDCRAWLER!!! I didn't really think a bad plug would give such sporadic firing (I would have thought it would either work, not work, or be weak, not intermittent), but lo and behold, the new spark plug on the #1 cylinder fixed it.

Any case, I understood to limit your reverse travel (especially over uneven ground) ...

My 440 rebuild

When I was a wee lad, my dad and I would go out hunting and we would find ourselves on some logging cut-block trail. He mentioned more than a few times that he would love to have a small dozer with levers and foot pedals and he could fool around with and build some trails of his own. Well, flash for...
