Gentelmen,
I just want to thank you for the support, and help. I really got into it today, and took the wheel off so to get down there and see what was wrong as I couldn't get that oil plug back down where it belong. Pulled the wheel shaft out, and peeked in there and noticed the hub to the inner shaft was in the way. Well that's no oil plug, it's a pin for the inner shaft to slide on and has to go into the proper slot or it won't work. Please don't make the same mistake! That's a hard way to get an education. It works good now!
Bob

Glad you got it! Gravelys are pretty simple really. The hardest part is usually getting 50 years of rust and dirt to move out of the way and let you do whats needed.
Hey, someday if you really want a nice rotary plowing rig find yourself and older 2 speed model with the geared wheels and 12" tires. Makes all the difference in the world. Much, much easier to handle and you won't ever get stuck.

Bret,
OK, some day I will do just that, but right now I have (4) that are not working. They are all newer models, 1964, 1966, 1967, 1968, there was only (1) running. I had it in the community garden bush hogging tough grass and corn stocks, then raking out all the stubble, then roary plowing it. Got bad bug problems! Gravely lasted until I was done for the day, then quite as it was smoking pretty bad and fouled the plug. Thank you for the information Bret.
Bob

Bob, when you work them hard you have to maintain them well. Make sure the fan belt is tight enough to be turning well, I've seen them slip. Make sure the air baffles are all there and that the fins and passages are fee of dirt and debris. An air cooled engine working hard needs air flow to cool it. Don't lean the tractor out too much and if you have an oil filter keep it changed, keep the oil topped off and in warmer weather or when working it hard use straight high quality 30 weight. You also want to make sure the timing is on, too much advance will kill them. They will pass a little oil when working hard, mostly form old gaskets, but the oil fill cap up front will vent oil vapor when she's bulling.

They are great old machines and you don't need to run them flat out to make power with that long stroke, low speed engine.
