    My mother said when they asked her at the hospital how to spell it for the birth certificate my parents realized they hadn't thought it out that far. She said it popped into her head seeing Darryl Zanuck's name on the movie credits and that was the only way she could think to spell it. Works for me!

    The engine is now all back together. As always, Sanel's Machine shop in Concord (NH) did a great job with the bore job and they got it turned around quickly (I've had the block back for about 3 weeks now). The engine is now basically new. It has a new crankshaft, connecting rod, piston, and piston rings. All the shaft seals and gaskets were also replaced. Also everything has been thoroughly cleaned before reassembly and the rear flywheel/fan cowl has been cleaned and painted as it was a little ugly (surface rust). I'm taking a break right now, as it's a little toasty in the shop today, but if I could find the darn float pin, I would be able to have it running today. That said, I'll continue with this thread once the motor is bolted in and running again, but here are some more pictures from this rebuild.


    <p>After the engine is bolted in, I have the fun part of this build to do, which is an exhaust system. The stock system is no longer available, so I have to build or adapt a set-up to make it exit at the correct place. I look forward to posting pictures of that one.

    Great post.
    Do you know how many hours were on the engine before the rebuild?
    These Honda engines seem to last forever.

    Hi I have one of these tractors all of a sudden the oil light lit up, I stopped the engine immediately and now it wont start, the lights dont come on or anything, does anyone have an idea what could have happened or supply a link to the manual the one above doesnt work.
