    You should be fine with the Oil Filter, attaching a copy of the drain pipe I added on my C-81, have done the same with all my machines..... you just need to do a little calculating (right pipe size, pipe length, thread and elbows........ always tilt the Tractor to the drain side and drain when hot......
  13. C-140 8 Speed Kohler 321S

    You doing well Sutty, yes the oil tube is there to make a channel from the drain supplied to whatever you are draining in... I personally hate them and on all my tractors I have installed whatever piping and right angles I need to make changing the oil a breeze. Regarding filters you do need to install the correct filter (one recommended by the manufacturer). In the U.S. this is easy since most of the Non OEM manufactures follow the OEM specs..... the issue is that some tractors specify that the filter has a by-pass valve so that if the filter every gets completely clogged the valve will kick and prevent a starvation occurrence - damage to the engine.

    From what I read you did very well you certainly are more detailed and precise then I am..... there is nothing wrong with Synthetic oil it is just sometimes too good for old machines and if the rings and valve guides are a bit worn they could pass some oil where you weren't before etc. especially if you are using the old girl real hard, also it will find any faulty gasket and will leak a bit..... you hit the head on the nail with the viscosity observation... the Synthetic is thinner and I believe has some silicon content.... This is why I suggested the Shell Rotellar T, great oil thicker used in the diesel engines and I believe some Zinc which your old Kohler valves will appreciated..... p.s. you can mix the two like 1/2 and 1/2 and get the best of both worlds.
  15. C-140 8 Speed Kohler 321S

    I do NOT run Synthetic oil on any of my older tractors especially if they are worn, as the superior qualities of this oil will find every sin in the engine, I only use Synthetic on a engine that ALWAYS used Synthetic. I use Shell Rotellar T (Tractor Supply) on all my old machines and have had excellent results for over 10 years.
