     I managed to find a supplier of reproduction carb gaskets and decals
for this old Briggs.  He was also a retired engine repairer form the
50's and was able to help me put all the parts in the right places.  The
points were cleaned and the coil was checked for conductivity.  I did a
test spin of the flywheel to check for spark and jolted my left hand
which was inadvertanly touching the spark plug lead.  I reassembled all
the parts and slowly filled the tank with gas, checking for leaks.  Gas
was pouring out the base of the carb bowl.  Retightening all fittings
stopped the leaks.  The big time had come...will it start?   No!
Compression was no good, turned out to be the exhaust valve not fully
closing.  A little WD40 in the plug  hole and extra pressure on the
valve spring and it fired up.  

To date it always starts on the second pull after full choke.

Hi David - I had an idea on the way home from Expo-Sno 2006 that I want to run by you.

These snowmobile shows always have the same effect...GET BACK TO  RESTORING THOSE HUS SKIS! 

The BosaK is my next project and may be of interest to other collectors to see the restoration process from  beginning to end of what is a very rare machine. 

I could send you photos  on a weekly (or as work proceeds) basis for you to post in a special " Bosak restoration" section.  The photos would include all the before photos. 

These alone will give me many months lead time. 

Expected completion would be one year or perhaps its debut at EXPO-SNO 2007!

What do you think?  Barrie Graham - Arundel, Quebec
