560 LP Questions.....

I have been eyeing up a 560 on LP for a couple of years, but I have been hesitant about buying it due to two reasons: 1 - LP is a new fuel system to me & I don't know what to look for when buying one, 2 - they backfire(?). Normally such a trivial thing as backfiring wouldn't bug me except for the fact that I've heard that a few 60 series LP tractors backfired when new & that malady stays with the tractor.... which to me sounds like bull-pies. How could there be no fix for that? Even the 560LP IH sent to Nebraska for testing, backfired. So, I guess I would like to know more about what causes it to happen & if I should shy away from that series of tractors, on LP, in the first place. Also, how hard is it to get at the hydraulics with that big ol' tank in the way?

One wonders how ridiculous crap like "they backfire" gets started. Never heard of such a thing. I have several LP gas tractors and no "backfire" issues.

LP is a clean fuel and not to be ran down , but I tend to prefer gas or diesel over LP because it is easier to go get more fuel .

Your talking about the Hyd control vales , right side of the steering wheel, i don't think it's anymore a issue than on a gas or diesel. I been around LP, a bit, but never knew a 560 backfired. Set the timing back and make sure the needle and seat is closing off the fuel, is all i can say, In the regulator their a diaphragm that acts like a float in a carburetor, That csme with Ensign brand equipment on it, which was of poor quality in my opinion, If your serious you can update that with a different brand.
