I got the 69 1050 started today! I was actually surprised at how well it ran! I added the missing fuel line but guess I didn't route it correctly as the fuel wasn't getting to the carb. So rather than waste time on something where I wasn't expecting anything great if it ran, I took a small gas can and put the hose on the little vent nipple and turned it upside down. cranked it for a few seconds and it turned over. Smoked at first but I expected that from the pb blaster and oil I had poured into the cylinder the other day. The choke cable is still stuck so I moved it around by hand until the idle evened out. Ran it for a short time and the smoke started to fade. When I was looking at it closer before starting it I noticed the mounting bolts for the engine were loose. I figured the engine was probably NG and someone just dumped it in there. But it runs good. I think it may have had the hydraulic setup and it was taken off since it mounts under the engine mounting bolts. Same old dirty spark plug and same old dirty oil although I did add about 1/2 qt and it runs nice and quiet w/o any smoke. Now I can spend a little more time and money and do it the right way. The only negative was the clutch which either needs to be replaced or maybe just adjusted. The gears grind when I tried to shift. But I started it in gear and it goes so the tranny may be OK also.
