Well, I did not lift the hydraulic lift cover. I did however drain the oil completely and refilled with the oil suggested by the Massey dealer (per the advise here). The lift pump came right back into service.
I ended up taking quite a bit of oil back out. 8 gallons as shown in the manual end up being a bit too much. The book said 8 gallons, I had 7.6 so I didn't bother checking, I just dumped it in.... anyway, rookie mistake... I learned.
I had tried the hydraulics in the garage and then I wanted to test to see if the multipower came back as well (although it has never worked since I've had the tractor). I headed out to my driveway which is slightly down hill to see if I had any engine compression. As I get on the slope the tractor starts smoking and losing power. I shut it off and let it cool down, I can hear the coolant boiling......
Anyway after it cools for a bit, I get it back to the garage.........
Coincidence???? It has to be right????
I checked a few things.....
Engine oil level is fine. It feels fine as well.
I checked the level in the radiator.... it looks fine....
I'm heading out to take the thermostat out as soon as it cools down completely..... hopefully thats the problem, after that I guess it is the water pump.... and the start of another thread.
