Well I was using my N yesterday. Not to much, just running the cutter over some brush, and moving around the land a bit to do some cutting, and all of a sudden.... WOSH!!! I get a face full of coolent!!!!

Now right before this happand, The motor sound changed. All I can discribe it as is sounding like a big dozer. I then turned around to see if it was smoking any more, or less out of the tail pipe, when it went. Now at first I thought "well maybe it just got to hot" Then I relised that it was not that hot. [good thing, or I would have been burned] So I shut it off, and checked to see if the belt or water pump or something went. All looked good, then I fired it back up, and all was good. Now going back to the drive, it started leaking a little agean. not like last time, but still blowing out more then it should. I am guessing I may have a cracked head or something.:mad:

Now the motor has always been a smoker. And maybe this may be the time to rebuild her, before summer comes. You know I was hoping to get one summers use out of the cutter before I had to rebuild:mad: :mad: :mad:

most likely

Sounds like a blown head gasket to me.. They don't make things to last only 60 years old and you are having trouble already.

I second Slipshod. Sounds like a blown head gasket. Also could be a crack in head or block maybe. Check the oil for coolant. But being a car guy you probably knew that one right Paul:D

Well tryed her out today a little. No coolent bl;owing out, but all KINDS of noises when warm under a load. Also, when it makes the noise[box of rocks:eek: ] the oil pressure dropps a little at the same time. Seemed to be some coolent in the oil also.


Well long story short..............


She is now in the garage almost all torn down. It has ALWAYS smoked REAL bad, and I am thinking it is just due. I want to get it before something BAD goes, and takes pricy parts with it. I will be starting a new thred when I get the chance to down load the pictures. Fo now, I see nothing major wrong, just a LOT of wear!!!!!


Just as a teeser, this is what it looks like right now:D :D

Jody,
Dont think that thats not crossing the wifes brain also.:D :D

Realy I was suprised how well she took the news. But we had just got the brushcutter, and have a lot of projects for it. I am also luck that she knows the value of good equpitment. May cost a few hundred now, but that it will last another 60 years after it, and also that there is no way to replace it for what it needs.

Dr,

Where did you get the kit from? I have seen the cheep kits on ebay, but have been leary of them.
