Default Hello, new member signing in with pics

Hello to all, I've been lurking for a while and finally decided to join in. I've had a long time interest in older, but not the oldest iron. I have resurrected a 1976 TroyBilt Horse, a 1969 Ariens SnoThro and I still have the 5239 Lawnboy I was given back in the early seventies. I have a 1965 JD 110 I am repowering with a Wisconsin S-8D because that's what I had on hand.

My father taught about the small engines for about 40 years at West Virginia University and I learned a LOT from him until he passed away in 2001.

Hope I can give as much as I have received from the forums over the last year or two.

Attached is a pic of my MEP-017A with the larger fuel tank and additional muffler and my TroyBilt Horse right after the complete rebuild in 1997.

Welcome aboard, I remember the MEPs from Germany (Air Force) back in the mid 70s. I like your Troy Bilt too. I too like the "classic" (post 1948 Aluminum block) engines.

You are welcome to take a look at my photo album (I've got a few aluminum Briggs classics).

Thanks, I added the fuel tank after having to get up in the middle of the night several times. Its a 12 gallon and will run all night. I added the extra "turbo" muffler and it changes the exhaust sound to a dull roar, not too bad. It's hooked up to a 24V charger and a transfer panel to make things easier.
