    Yesterday I had to put a new drive belt on the Simplicity 7-55 snowblower at my fiance's place. It broke a few days ago. I called a dealer that was not the closest, but also sold farm equipment. I was not disappointed. They made a new chain while I waited. It was an easy repair and now back in business.

    I know this may not be the last post in this thread. :D

    Other then cleaning some parts from the Case 448 I had bought a month or two ago and selling them I have been working on the new to me 1968 Ingersoll air compressor. We did the pressure test on it this weekend and I also stripped all of the piping off of it and started painting the tank and the compressor pump.

    That was kind of what I was intending, not that we don't have the best stuff, but sometimes it does need repair, or a smack with a California framer.

    I put the last coat of paint on the air compressor tank two nights ago. I am going to get the compressor pump mounted back on tonight and out some of thr air lines back on for the unloaders. Will try to remember to take pics.

    We got the pump put back on the tank and also got the flywheel painted and mounted. I have the deflector for the air cooler coils primed now and will paint it tomorrow.

    We worked on the Bolens Ride-O-Matic a little more today. We got the chain adjustment figured out and put it on the middle speed setting. We also had trouble getting it to work in reverse and then got that figured out. I did some more tuning on the carb and she putts along nicely at idle and runs great full speed. Puffs a little white smoke when revving it but for a 50+ year old motor I don't think that is too bad.

    We gotta get a gasket kit for the carburetor. The fuel bowl gasket is leaking and the bolt for the bowl could use a new gasket also.

    If I ever get off my lazy ass this morning and go out and finish painting the guard for the air line coils I will get some pics and get them posted. All in due time I guess LOL.

    I got some work done tearing some more stuff apart on the Case 448 I decided to part out and also got 4 of the 6 items that already sold boxed up and ready to ship tomorrow. The money is going towards the new electric motor for the air compressor.

    Will be using a hammer drill today to put the lag bolts in for the air compressor. Might try and get some of the air piping done today too.

    Sounds like you are getting along pretty good on that project.

    I just wish it was easier to figure out exactly what all will be needed, like with plumbing the air line. I am sure I will have a lot of questions when it comes time to doing the wiring.
