Thank you.

Also thank God for Saturday. I usually do my chores in the dark, go to work, come home in the dark. Did the fuel filter in the pitch black at 9PM the other night.

Anyway, with some time and sunlight, I pulled the old girl out of the shed and checked the new filter in the sunlight. All good fuel in there. The crap went with the old one.

While it sat there idling, I lifted the bucket and located the side cover mounting bolts. When I took off the wing nut holding the outer air filter, I heard a strong hiss and the filter has SO much suction that I couldn't pull it until I shut off the engine.

I pulled the outer, loosened the inner and started back up. It ran like a champ. Asked the owner when the air filter was changed last. Maybe three or four years ago. Mystery solved.

Now to figure out how to service the transmission.

Easy way to fill it is to remove the breather next to where your beer can was. Now I need to check where the check plug is located. Sounds to me like you may also have moisture in your hydraulic fluid and is your gear shift boot cracked or damaged? If so replace it!

Could be crud in the tank blocking the fuel out let.unhook the line from the filter to the tank at the filter and blow back with compressed air.

But first open the water drain on the tank and let the water drain out.

There's also a small last ditch filter in the injection pump fuel inlet.

It may be plugged also.
