i probably would not have flushed the crankcase with kero.. but it's done.. so can't change that.

I usually DO add some diesel to the trans and diffy/hyd oil prior to chanigng them however.

if you don't mind the cost of the kero / diesel, and have a way to dispose of it. and the sump was wet.. I'd do this.

mix up diesel/kero/mineral spirits. a quart or 2 of cheap f type atf or dex/mer 3 and a couple pints of drug store 90% rubbing alcohol.

dump that in there agitate and rinse. ;)

grabs water real well.

then go in with utf.

that's pretty much my standard treatment on a new to me tractor if I suspect anyting other than immaculate maintenance by the prev owner.

That's pretty good Sound Guy. Can I get your recipe for Blue Berry Muffins while we are at it? O'course I'm just kidding with you. You do a great job on this board and we all appreciate it.

"immaculate maintenance by the previous owner" is a funny comment. I am generally hoping and praying for ANY maintenance by the previous owner, or owners.

yup... seesm like some people buy tractors and when the original oil and grease in it are used up.. they let it set till it dies and is old and stuck.. or keep runnning it till it is near ruined.... :(

you didn't harm the crankcase washing it with kerosene.. but I wouldn't do that unless i was tearing it down. vapors and all.. etc..

no i would NOT flush an engine with any of those mixes.

when i mix.. I usually use a gallon of diesel to a quart of atf to a pint of alcohol.

rinse as in drain.
