A couple days ago I posted questions regarding my timing and I wanted to give an update that the tractor is now running. My problem was simple I had the battery on the the same side as my starter on the starter switch and the battery was on the post by itself I guess thatís what happens when you wire it together at midnight without thinking. That explains why every time I hit the starter it would fire then stop suddenly. I do have one question regarding the oil pressure I noticed my oil pressure gauge was on up to about 3/4 on the gauge when idled down it went down not to the red but kinda close the gauge is a new one that I got off eBay it was really cheap so maybe itís not registering right but I was just looking through pictures I had on my phone and I know I asked this before but on the rear camshaft bearing closest to flywheel I put the one hole to the rear main hole as I was told. So by doing this the camshaft bushing covers the rear main hole but it looks like the rear main has a channel inside the block that feeds the oil pressure line is this correct? Iím just curious

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
