Yes. I decided I would never get that gray to look good.


More progress today.




Also cut off the front clip of the B2 so the motor will be easy to pull.

When it's all said and done, I jacked up the needle on my float. So I was going to order a new float kit for it until I found the entire carb for 17 dollars on Amazon.

Unfortunately, my neighbor started turning screws n' shit on his, and I can't get it to run for longer than 30 seconds. (Mine runs even without the float assembly in the bowl, lol).
Finally got both of these pigs running again. Mine has a brand new carb on it now, and I used my old carb to fix his. The motors are nearly identical (Mine is a Champion, his is an All Power), but his does 240V, while mine only does 120V. Now it's time to do some Sta-bil in the fuel.

Looking at getting plugs out of a 3V 5.4 with this giddyup here, and a can of Aerokroil.
