its about 28 degrees here right now with the wind just a wiping, just to cold to enjoy some time on the tractor.

Jim, looks like im just going to tuck her away for the winter and work on the little things. I was going to add a squirt of oil to each cylindar, turn it over by hand a little to distribute the oil through the cylindar, put a pvc pipe cap on the exaust pipe to stop any condensation and add some fuel stabilizer to the gas. This sound good? not going to hurt it by not breaking it in before spring right? thanks my friend and anyone else that can help. ~Anthony

I agree with Jim. I was taught a long time ago, when you shut a tractor down for what is going to be an extended period, leave it running and turn the fuel off. When it stops, then turn the ignition off.

Reason is, that this drops the float to it's lowest position in the carb (and also removes a good bit of the fuel). If the float is going to stick, you have a much better chance of having the fuel pushing upwards against it when you turn it back on to help free it up, than the other way around.

Old timer taught me that many years ago, and I have had little to no trouble starting up a stored tractor (at least for carb reasons).

Sounds like a plan. I would put the additive in the fuel, then move it around to mix it. I would run it for five minutes, then shut off the fuel and let it stop with no fuel in the carb. (shut off the ignition when it stops) Jim
