  1. Tell me your not parting out the one I sold you !!! That little machine made equipment echoes magazine...the DVD and it made The international hough dresser book that came out last year !
  2. I was thinking of cutting the exhaust portions off and making flanges and pipework to make a separate manifold. As the intake and exhaust are cast as one piece I would have to get pretty creative. I located a manifold for 300...which is more than I paid for the machine but it may be worth picking it up. I removed the head and cylinder walls look very good.
  3. Well....the exhaust manifold is rotted to **** on the bottom. Dont think I can find one either. Anyone know if any other herc manifolds will bolt to this engine ? Carb is in the middle as is exhaust outlet but I'm sure I could make it work if the exhaust was on front or back. Guy down the street has a Detroit 353 for sale....prolly more work to fab in another engine than worth.
  4. There were 2 filter types...one I recall was a single large oval with a mesh screen that could be cleaned and reused. The other had two round filters that had to be replaced. Wix filters makes both. I think they were around 20 bucks.my t340 would required cleaning of the filters quite often.
  5. Has a hercules engine. No ticking or knocking but at idle it gradually revs higher on it's own. Has a gas pedal and hand throttle. Gas fill cap is just to the left of steering wheel. It came with a set of chains for the rear tires too ! Not a bad project. I had an h25b years ago and struggled with traction on that too
  6. Picked this little hough hf for what I felt was a fair price. Former town machine. Heat even works ! It has a 6 volt system but the guy jumped the solenoid with a 12 volt battery. Melted some wires and started a small fire.which didnt concern me much untill I realized he spilled gas all over the cab floor while filling the tank. At 6 feet tall and 250 pounds I wasnt getting out of the cab very fast so we decided to just winch it on the truck instead of trying to drive it on. Has all the old work lights and even a licence plate from 1950 still on it. Not sure when I'll get around to it but a few problems right off the bat. Brakes do not work...engine wont idle and continues to rev up even with throttle down. And theres a crack at the flange on the exhaust manifold. Not sure if I will leave it 6 volt or switch it to 12 with a GM one wire alternator .
  7. Thanks Brian. I was told my tracks may last another 10 years, but I don't want to chance it. I'll start looking for a parts machine and hope for the best. Thanks again for the help.
