610 Bobcat

You realize that it's approx. 40 years old and some parts are near impossible to find, especially for the drive system? It's not hydrostatic but uses a 2 speed clutch set up as I understand it. They were a good machine in their day and may provide you with a lot of service but if you plan to do a lot of side work, you may want to look at a newer machine. The Wisconsin engines in them I think are VH4D's (30 HP)and would require an engine job every 1000 to 1500 hours according to a dealer who used to sell them. I think because of their location they were prone to overheating.

Sounds like a stuck float or some dirt got sucked in the carb when it ran out of gas.

Your right 610 bobcat about finding parts. Looking on eBay and you don"t see hardly nothing for them. I don"t use it a lot, say once a weekend. If its getting over heated, what can be a cure for that or is it something where I just need to let it cool off every hour?

If you're not using it hard for hours at a time, you should be fine. Make sure to periodically clean out debris from the shroud around the engine so it has maximum cooling. The engine is tucked inside pretty good and doesn't get as much air flow as if it were out in the open.
