Posted by Paul in Edmonton on November 28, 2012 at 07:11:47 from (

A big thank you to those of you who have answered my questions over the last few weeks, dealing with weak spark, changing tires, charging, and probably a couple others.

Since bringing the tractor home I've:

- Changed the battery (it was very dead)

- Replaced the spark plug wires (they needed it)

- Replaced the distributor rotor, cap, and gaskets (whether they needed it or not)

- Replaced all the wires that go through that tube with the spark wires (at least one needed it)

- Replaced the sediment bowl (the valve handle was gone)

- Replaced the front tires (rubber was all cracked--those things were OLD)

- Replaced brake pads and springs/adjusters (I'm not sure if they really needed it or if what it really needed was new seals. We'll see.)

- Fixed a connection in the generator

And now it's running fine, and charging, it goes back to the cabin to plow snow for the winter--which is the purpose I bought it for three years ago. Hopefully in the summer it'll be used for rough mowing, too. (Still need to buy a mower, but I did buy the ORC.)

But the work is not done. There are a bunch of seals that probably need replacing--pretty much all of them except the head gasket. I think the motor needs a rebuild, based on the oil pressures. (So I guess the head gasket will be replaced, too.) I use 0W40 oil in there (which I could only find in Mobil 1, so there's $60 of oil in the motor) so I can start it easily in winter, but still have oil pressure when it's hot. And even then the pressure still gets pretty low when it's hot.

But that will wait at least until spring. And I know I'll be able to get answers here to the questions I'll inevitably have!

Thanks again,
