I have two Gravelys. The big beast is a commercial 10 with a ten horse Kohler 118lb engine! The model "L" is a 1962 6.6hp engine. I have a Roto plow. You have GOTA get one of these! There is something I added to my model L. Find a local mower Etc. salvage yard and pull the oil pressure gauge off of one. It is an accsesory! you will need the little brass "T" pipe and gauge, everything else just hooks in. Cost maybe $15.oo. Also don't use a Fram Ph8a oil filter. It is way too messy. Use a PH16 filter. It is about 3/4 of an inch shorter and much easier to got on and off.

PS the Ph16 filter is about 3/8 of an inch shorter. They were made for the smaller 4cyl engine in cars where things get tight.

Hi Jeff,
I have an oil pressure gauge, and the indicator needle goes all the way up. Also I have two rotary plows, they work great. Also have a bush hog mower.
The oil filter is a PH-43 I will try that smaller one you mentioned. Thanks.

On the rotary plow, don't forget to check the oil level. I have 2 I think and one is in need of new bearings because PO didn't add oil. They made a rotary cultivator you'll often see advertised as a "tiller" that bolt to the rotary plow case. Wonderful tool for cultivation if you have the room.
At one time I had 13 running Gravely L's and boxes and barrels of parts. Renter got rid of a lot of stuff on me that can not be replaced. Had a few dozen implements. The day I found out he'd junked it was a dark and angry day for me.

I am sorry to hear about your loss. These things are priceless! Will he pay for the loss? I have these (4) and work on them for winter projects, thinking that if country goes to hell someone may need one for gardening.

Pay for it? Right! Naw, that was close to 20 years back now. I think your right about things headed down hill though. BCS makes a good modern version but it's expe$$$$ive. There were some guys trying to fit a low speed diesel to an L model frame. No matter what they try it's still too fast running. That's the problem with the Kohler powered ones like Jeff mentioned above. I ahve one and it's find for mowing the lawn with a finish mower, but it's way too fast for the plow, the sickle bar, the bush hog, the old snowblowers, etc. I think those Gravely engines ran about 400 rpm wide open. Nothing else comes close.
