Very nice engine .I see it sold a few weeks ago.Is it the rear governor rod cast iron bracket thats missing (behind the flywheel) ??.The front support bracket (on the cylinder head) also supports the side bar

The bearing cap stud is not a problem.......just remove one of the others and take it to an engineering company for them to copy.The thread will be UNC .You could make a bracket from steel so you can at least run the engine.If you ever find an original cast one you can then replace it.As it happens my 6 Mule-Team engine also has a "home made" steel bracket fitted !

Hi Stuart, thanks for the information, I,m hoping to source the missing parts etc do you know if the diameter of the fuel lines is critical to the running of the engine?

The diameter of the pipes must fit on the 1/4" brass check valves.The fuel pipes and fittings for my 6 Mule Team are the original steel ones but i have no check valves as yet (impossible to find original CRANE 125 ones !!).I still have to sort out the fuel system for my engine.
