  1. unleaded gas

    I have had good luck with the Lucas Product, Ethanol Stabalizer in the 10% ethanol gas we have here. Not firmiller with shell V power whats that non Ethanol gas? I too am about to run a 92 octane non ethanol fuel in a Kolher 301as 12hp machine deadicated to snow removal. Let ya all know how I make out.

    I agree, if the dipper is broken or missing you would of had a failure by now. Knocking comes from out of tolerance /wore out piston wrist pin to rod or crankshaft journal to rod end. Using the wrong engine oil viscosity for the temperature range ing used in.

    Yep that's what I figured it was from! I didn't think it had anything to do with Wheel Horse unless of course you have a horse that has a Tecumseh on it. I think some of the newer ones like what they call the black hoods came with them. I myself try to stay away from them and go with Kolher. Yep I love Kolher's! I do know the Indian insigna from a Tecumseh that I had on a MiniBike when I was a kid. Guess what, I st ill have that Minibike! Please let me know if you have a image attached to this text. Thanx, Mike

    So... is there a MSDS sheet for the Lucas product I'm using?

    I've never used the Seafoam product, picked up the can, or read the label. What is it's intended purpose? The product I've been using is Lucas Flex Fuel Ethanol Fuel Conditioner with stabilizers. I use this in all my Kohler, Tecumseh and hobby car engines. In my neck of the woods we have to store for maybe 4 to 5 months of the year. It gets cold here too, sometimes into the minus digits. Perhaps I've just been lucky?

  11. my B80 was given to me by a guy who did the yard work for a church! He knew my son and I go kart raced and told me he had a Kolher more for me. I asked him what it was on and he told me his church had bought a new lawn machine, that would be replacing this wheelhorse. I told him I'd be interested in the whole thing. I made a donation to his church and  bought the 36'' rear discharge deck for $250 later. Yep I't's orignal paint I think I made out alright! Thanx, 1940willys

      Nice, so did your concious guide your donation appropriately-(w/o suffering too many pangs of guilt!!)?!!! lol!

      I think Wayne was very happy and suprised I donated anything at all! Surprised myself actually. We both loved steelhead fishing and thats how we came to know each other. Great toolmaker too, we both worked in the same building.

  14. baffling 42"rear discharge

    Slammer 302, thank you for the pic that looks similar to what I have? From the pic you sent, baffling seams to go down BOTH sides of the center blade, Correct? Now if you know the model # for that deck and the correct numbers to order a correct set of blades I would GREATLY appreciate that information too. Thanx
  15. Looking for pics of the baffling under a 42" rd three bladed mower. I recently purchased one with no model tag and rotted out baffling. thanx, any pics would help.
