  1. Not wanting to destroy a perfectly good block I am going to ask what works to separate the engine halves. I have all the bolts out and it shows no inclination to move in any direction
  2. If you have oil in the air cleaner check the pressure relief assembly located on the front right side of the engine facing it alao the crankcase vents can get clogged that was one of my oil leak disasters on the 518h
  3. Thanks all for the input jbweld is one of the thoughts I had. I guess I should get busy tearing it down to be sure that there is no other problems I will keep you posted. Ernie
  4. So last week I finally put the m18 together to swap out the onan in the 518h everything went smoothly and it ran really nice until the oil started to shoot out of the side by the oil filter cover. At first I thought it was the gasket then I saw the 3/16 hole between the oil dipstick and filter what can I use to patch that? The block is aluminum and is somewhat corroded and pitted there . Any ideas
  5. Thanks Ed I'll check it out. Ernie
  6. Has anyone ever found any supplier of pulleys for the 48 inch side discharge deck toro #s 110146 &110147 like napa or online?
  7. I am with Sylvan Lake you are unfortunately out of our normal travel range. The hood really looks great
  8. I bought my 310-8 new in 1987 it looks a lot rougher than most of the ones shown but it still runs like new I used it all last summer mowing with the 48 inch deck if I can get the 518h to be that reliable after I change the engine I will be a happy man. I'm pretty sure that it has over 2000 hours on it at least
  9. Thanks all for the answer to my post on the same subject now I just have to figure out how to get the thing home, and find a rich uncle Billy to pay for it
  10. Does anyone know if a 6-9633 model dozer blade will fit 300/400/500 series tractors
  11. That one has been on C/L for about a year my thoughts are if you can't hear it run and the deck is not perfect it is not worth more than you already offered him. Too many possibilities for things to be wrong.
  12. The biggest difference between the two is the atf has a lot of detergent additives in it. It is primarily a lubricant just like the regular oil and has been used as hydraulic fluid for many applications. Automatic transmissions are operated by hydraulic pumps much the same as our tractors just smaller and more complex
  13. I have used my 310-8 to haul firewood for most of its life with turf tires and 4 link chains the average cart load is about 700 lbs or more they work as well in the woods going up and down slopes & over stuff as they do on gravel going down the road in fact I had a tire blow on the cart about an eighth mile from home and pulled the cart the rest of the way home in 3rd high without any problems or even kicking in the governor. I'm a believer in chains on snow
  14. There are no limits to it that 12 horse kohler will do anything you ask it to. The snow blowers come up pretty regularly around Flint and mid Michigan. There is one ad around midland or thereabouts that seems to have them all the time enjoy your new horse
  15. Just a quick thought on pressure washing anything only use enough to do the job (cleaning engine & parts about 1000 psi)stay off seams &openings you should be okay did this professionally for 15 years and never tore up anything
