Jim, thank you! I am aware of the starting position on the run/stop lever. If the air temp is below 40, this tractor will not start and I hate to use the ether. That recirculating heater doesn't sound like too bad a job, where do you get one?
Brakes could be part of my hyd. fluid leak, are repair kits available for the master cyl and wheel cyl? My IT repair manual looks like there is one master cyl. and an equalizer valve, is that right?
We are going to put in a clutch so will split the tractor, will that make working on brakes easier?
