If it is any consolation, a friend at work had the fuel pump on his cavalier go out and guess what, full tank of gas.
I think I see a trend lol!

Mabey this is why I don't have any intention of owning a chevy, unless it's a classic. lol!

now what was i gonna do oh yeah tell yalll what i did today well started off at noon and powerwashed the riders i got to work on man was there alot of crud on the drive after that had to wash the drive too afterwards but i cheated and hooked up the power washer to the hot water in the bathroom and i also put the chain fall on the basket ball hoop and lifted the front of the mowers up so they are very clean now compared to what they used to be lol yeah me then i pulled the sears craftsman up to the shed and started to work on it thanks to a little help from the r for power yall will see and the starter didnt spin at all so i pulled a cover off to find the starter gear enguaged into the flywheel got it disenguaged and tried again same results so pulled the plugs fixed the starte again and same result well decided something in the belt was stuck so took off the drive pulley for the trans sprayed some fuel in the cylenders and put the plugs back in and hooked up my temporary gas tank and guess what she fires up there is a vid of this dont even have to clean the carb what kind of luck is that sounds like its in decent shape dont mind the sound on the vid it amplifies engine sound for some strange reason so then onto the belt issue well both the belt from the engine to the variator and the belt from the rear to the variator were in the same pulley groove so i pop the one out and give the trans a shot get it moving just long enough to find out second is shot in the trans and all others work its a 3 sp manual before the belt jumps again so we get to lookin at it and see that one pulley has been replaced and a make shift spring was installed well the pulley was a tnsioner not a v groove and the spring was rigged so we figure this is the problem so replace the spring and the tensioner pulley and try again thats where the moving video come in and it worked great take it back park it and dad gets on it to put it in its spot since we dont have another trans and poof does it again i have a problem here im thinking the rear belt is too long or something of the sorts or the variator is missing a belt retainer idk i need to look at some drawings then i also replace the one front wheel bearing there is a pic of whats left on it did this prior to the test drive also the deck works on its ok lol oh yeah the gas in the tank was good on it so we hooked up the factory tank too so we clean up the mess touch up the last on the barn quilt which i have a pic of today and move the allis to the sidwalk for work tomorrow we shall see what it brings lol but i also got a pic of my trusty power washer it was free to me yeah me and that was it for the day the vids will be at the bottom as always any suggestions on my variator proble will be helpfull thanks nate

today was not a great day at werneburg INC lol tought i would have a vid of the allis drivin around to day but guess not cuse guess what some serious proplems with that engine but let me tell the story started today off with a bang got the mail and my tec flywheel keys were here so i put that craftsman self propelled bagger back together serviced it and fired it up works like a charm listed on craigs for 60 bucks a fair price i think and then i started work on the allis first thing first check oil good has oil ok hook up the jumper cables to the starter starter no spinn take the starter off starter is ok clean the gear up reinstall pull plug engine still no spin ok disconnect drive shaft engine still no spin on starte ok pull the valve cover adjust valves and check compression relese everything ok had to ajust vavles ok now try still no spin ok problem with engine maybe rod cap on backwards or overtight so pull engine out and apart well i was correct rod cap is on backwards but bad news is its shot now wiped it cranks ok though ok pull the motor all the way apart well rod has been cleareced head has dings in it lots of bolts missing and ect ect but it was a new piston and rod just not done correctly guy didnt even hone or bore the cylender out and its tore up but boreable i think i hope so so thats the story of the k 361 not a good one and the guy said he got it and was told all it needed was the valves ajusted so wrong way far off so time to spend some $$$$$ on some kohler parts and now the pics
