I got that old seized engine on the mulching machine running today and started to make our own mulch for our no till garden.

I had purchased this back in New York for scrap metal price and brought it back to Michigan with me when we moved. This old mulcher/chipper had been sitting out in the elements for many years with no air filter on it.

Rain had filled up the gas tank and then the engine itself. This seized up the piston, valves and everything else inside the engine.

I eventually freed up the moving parts by working them slowly back and forth with time.

Finally I felt it was good enough and put it all back together again. It fired when I put gas in the carburetor so I knew it would run. But it would not draw gas from the tank. So I ordered a diaphragm for the carb.

That arrived recently and I got the old mulching machine running again. It starts on the first pull and runs very well.

I processed some tree bark and twigs through it to see how well it works. It took everything I threw at it with no problem. The engine seems to be cleaning itself up as well and running better.

Later I hauled a mess of fire wood from the pile next to the log splitter and stacked it up on the wood piles by the house.

Processing mulch and fire wood for our off grid homestead is part of becoming self sufficient.
