Needs: ebrake freed up, new alt belt, fix/ figure spaghetti shifter issue. Looks like loose bushings all over.

Check timing belt, plugs, clutch cable, choke. Cold start was very difficult.

Insure it

Plate it?

Paint it

Roughly 5' wide, 11' long, I'd guess around 6' high with the high cab, maybe a bit more. should be around 1300#, probably around 70/30 front/rear bias. Once all else is dealt with, I might think about bobbing it to 8.5' long to go across a trailer or truck bed, if that's something that would help out in places.

TONS of oil smoke on cold start and at high R's. not yet sure how bad consumption actually is but it burns a bunch. Must be a 571 fleet thing? Hopefully the other fleet members don't learn from those two motors.

The starter only clicked this morning. unknown issue at this point. I did top off oil before I tried to start it - if valve seals are completely shot I maybe could have hydro locked it with oil? Suuuuper long shot, I highly doubt that. fully charged jump box at lunch and see what it does. Battery is supposedly a year old but isn't stamped. Could be a stuck starter or a stuck motor though it was running fine when I shut it off, and coolant is full & in good shape visually.

bah.

I think I'm finding that all "mighty mits" models (this is a '93 model year of such) have the older 550cc wedge head 3cyl. JDM units past 1990 have 660cc hemi head motors.

3 speed wide ratio trans (4th is locked out and may or may not have splines on the main shaft under it) and is governed to 25mph. No tach. Speedo non-op. Temp and fuel gauges seem to work. Carbureted. Running better on fresh fuel today. Needed some extra load on the electrical to crank so there's probably a dirty connection somewhere.

All parts available in japan, no issues other than shipping & waiting. Getting things here is a little tougher but there are several distributors who keep stock, and some random things cross - like same motor used in Toro commercial mowers for several years apparently so easy to get carb parts, plug wires, probably rebuild parts...
