The Cushman runs!!!

After having this thing sit around for several years, it was time to start using it again.  The problem was that it would barely run do to some serious carburetor issues.  Originally it had Keihin cab and unfortunately, I could not find anyone, anywhere that caries a rebuild kit for it. So, I managed to find a much more common Walbro carb off a 22hp truckster that with a few minor modifications fit perfectly.

Everything work really well.....until I ran out of gas.

Now that the thing will run, I feel a bit more inclined to fix some of the sheet metal issues.  At the very least, get rid of that ugly green color.
