Paint is faded but tractor gone through several years back. 994 hours on it when I bought it in June 2015. Does not smoke at all. Added Moly powder to power steering, crankcase and transmission so far. Smoothed engine
I mix 2 cycle oil into fuel. TC-W3 from Wally World at the rate of about 2 ounces per tank to substitute for the lower sulphur fuel. Got this tip on a generator forum. I also run it in cars and pick up.
Replaced the bolts securing grill guard with longer bolts (Grade 8)and added extra nut on each to lock it in place. Now the grill guard stays nice and snug. Plan is to add extra LED lights on front and back for night time running.
