I will have to take I look. I don't think it is plugged. I removed the oil from the cup and put breakclean in and turned the crank and the breakclean came out the other end but as soon as oil went in it just stopped. im using 10w30 oil so it shouldn't be too thick... not sure what the issue is...

Sounds like brakekleen is thin enough to go through but oil is not. I think maybe you have a partial blockage in that line. The last one I did a few weeks ago had bugs and their nests in the pipes.

I did a Hart-Parr one for a friend a couple of years back. It was a mess, had water in it, and rust in a lot of the pumps. It took some time and work, but it is now a good runner! The little screws all had to come out of the pump bodies to get a fine wire in to poke out the crud, use air pressure, and cleaners.

I ended up pouring breakclean down the cup and then turning the crank until it went into the pump. I then let it sit for a while to break down what ever gunk was in there and then pumped it out. It seems to be working now.

I also got my magneto Rebuilt by Rudy in Forrest Lake MN. He did a great job with it.

I have a little bit of work to do on the throttle valve and it should be ready to attempt starting this weekend hopefully.

I got the tractor Running last weekend. It fired right up but I will need to replace the head gasket and a few other gaskets on the cooling system.


Anyone out there have a Primer Gas tank on the original style water valve for a hart parr 18-36. I've checked with Biewers tractor salvage and they don't have either at the moment. Any leads would be great. I want to get the tractor as complete as possible and then start on the restoration.

Thanks!

I get my primer tanks from John Wanat from Connecticut, does a great job, has done 4 or 5 for me. If you need the measurements, let me know and I can draw you one up. Was pretty reasonably priced and EXCELLENT work. I made the straps myself and the wood blocks they sit on.

Fairly sure that is not an original valve in the picture. Set up like the original, but not original valve.

Andy, just stumbled across this forum. I have a partial 18-36 laying in the weeds. You can have the water valve if you haven't found one yet. And you are welcome to pattern off my primer tank as well. I'm just East of Hudson WI.
