well just like the sprocket side race this,baby has the fingernail speed bumps where the rollers rode,,seems to me with the amount of meat on the races you could line hone em and go pretty big on the oversize rollers,,,depending how much to cean it up and if the rollers that big are easy to obtain..

put these fuckers on the centers to see what the fuck was up em,,,,,,,I was pretty anxious to see the numbers,,,,,,the curiousity was driving me mental......it ran pretty smooth,when running so,,,,how whacked out could it be........................

sprocket shaft..

so after this thing is all tweeked up,,she should be a swiss watch,,,,or in all reality one fine tuned old briggs lawn muncher motor,,i just love the simplicity of side valves,they have draw backs but they will run,and run just like the black oil burning lawn mowers buried in the back shed
so ive been cleaning and going over the case surfaces with my favorite fine cut file....
after a lengthy pause................... 015_zps1b99082b
I use this guitar pick to find any burrs or snaggers to draw out..
after a lengthy pause................... 016_zpsfd408120interesting holes in the wheels,,wonder if the salty air in nova scotia where this thing sat by the wood pile led to this.. or just sitting with moisture period! mixed with the oil was more likely..
