Re: Tillotson HL-186A - What's up with that fixed High Speed

Very informational Pete, my brother and I just had just had his motor out of his 600. Went through the whole thing and the carb.(186A) We were also wondering about that fixed jet.

Re: First ride of the winter

Now that's a picture you don't see every day. Your Eliason looks like quite the machine. I have never seen one of those before. Another beautiful restoration you did. Were was that machine originally made. Good thing the Husskis stopped you or it looks like you would have went right over the hill an...

New Husski 444 Addition

I just recently bought another Husski this summer, the machine came from Andover Minnesota. Thanks to Chuck for selling it to me. I know he was pretty attached to it, but appreciate him letting it go. He did some work on it 10 yrs ago. Chuck is a small engine guy and has it running nicely. Think I w...

Re: A Diablo - A Survivor!

That is a very cool story. The whole reason my brother and I are into Husskis is because we have our grandpas original 600. It does look like a very good survivor that was stored nicely. You must have been very surprised and excited the first time you saw it. You are going to have to build yourself ...

Re: No Time To Waste! 444 for Feb 12th!Get Set Go !

This is a beautiful restoration of a 444. I haven't seen this project on the forum before. I realize it has been done a few years back. There is so much info on this site that it is hard to see it all. I wish I would have found this when I was doing mine as I was also an amateur in doing my 444 . I'...
