My dad bought a G1000 Vista LP in 1969. It was just about responsible for my dad quitting farming. It was our main field tractor for 5 years, and we never took off a crop with the same engine we put it in with. In the summer, cultivating summerfallow, if you pulled it to rated HP it would burn a valve right now. I remember the pile of scored blocks and pistons behind the shop from that era. It would get so hot that at night the exhaust would glow red right to the top of the stack. I think it might be the reason my brother and i became mechanics, we grew up fixing engines. I was 4-9 years old when that tractor was around. Years later we discovered it had the wrong water pump on it from new, it had the small diameter pump instead of the larger one the larger G's had. The dealer that sold us that tractor was never able to solve the issue. They always denied us any warranty coverage because the type of scoring on the blocks indicated we had over heated it. Duh, there was no way to keep it cool.

You had fuel problems. running way to lean. We have a G900, G950, G1050 and G1000 all on propane. Never heard of that with them tuned right.
