How exactly would that help? Would it not be subject to the same vibration damage as the diesel version, or was it made from different material? Or, would it too be considered a 'temporary' fix? (sans 'balancer')
The original tube in your tractor lasted 50 years while being subjected to the vibrations from the diesel engine. The tube from a gasoline engine tractor would not have been subjected to 50 years of diesel vibrations, and so would probably last you 50 years before it wore out from being vibrated by your diesel engine. So yeah, it would only be a temporary fix. This post was edited by Sean in PA at 11:35:12 05/19/13.
