Thank you guys. I certainly do not want to cut corners, and I want to build the best motor I can. As a public school math teacher with four kids at home, there are some things I have learned through the years:
1. Buy quality parts.
2. Do your homework.
3. Do all of the work/maintenance that you can yourself.
4. Know when the tools you need are to expensive to do the job yourself, especially if it is a job that only needs to be done once.
5. Read the instructions/manuals multiple times.
6. Take your time to do it right the first time and make do until it is done.

I don’t want to be cheap, but I do most of my own work, and am usually better satisfied with my own results than my friends are who hire “professionals”.

So far, we are only in a couple of hundred dollars since the tractor was a gift from a family friend, but we have invested some time.

Bruce, who would you suggest ordering engine kits/parts from?
