I'm always dragging something home off CL as a challengable fix-er-uppers but my last four in one week are( last month) You don't even want to see my EBAY purchase list for the last month.................. Last photo is what my cool Murray kart looks like now, and ready to mount the new engine on the chopper, measure and order a custom exhaust pipe for it!!

Bought 2 smallish (around 2 ft tall) oxygen tanks for an oxy-acetalyne setup and also an old edger type thing with a 2 horse Briggs on it for $40 total. The tanks have air in them, although I haven't hooked a regulator up to them yet. The Briggs has some compression, but doesn't run. I'll clean it up and see if it will run.

I have one with a 2 hp Honda, but it's missing the cap for the gas tank...ever price one of those? Weedikiculous!

I might have to fabricate something. I can do that. I was once stranded on a desert island, and I built a raft to get back to civilization....I put a fat guy, a goofy first mate, a billionaire, and his wife on it...and it went just far enough, so they couldn't swim back to shore! (They don't call me "the Professor " for nothing!) I was left with Ginger and Mary Ann.

Wait! is there a Gilligans Island marathon on...( I just woke up!)

Eh the whole edger part was kinda trash, I took all that off. I have other plans for that little Briggs...

Yeah, I only grabbed mine for a minibike engine. Nothing wrong with the edger, but I have an 18 volt Ryobi cordless string trimmer...ummm...pretty much like having a Ford Mustang as opposed to a hay eating one.

That string trimmer'd go a long way towards cleaning up that overgrown, tangled vegetation you call a yard.

Ever get your self-propelled mower going?
