Went out in the middle of the week, temperatures in the teens, tried to start my C145 plow machine.......no go!
Seems like the ACR is stuck, backfires through the carburetor. Using 10w-30 oil.
The machine always started pretty good. I was thinking I may need a block heater.
Anyone using the heaters? If so what type? wattage etc.
I see pad style, drain plug styles.
Ok - the UL-1 batteries won't cut it for turning over the big cast iron Kohler twins - got one that is only 6mo old and it's basically shot already . One start cycle and if it doesn't fire it's done - needs to be jumped . Since it's mounted above the Sundstrand pump and so close to that thumper engine I'd assume the vibration is just killing the plates . At a rate of 2 batteries per year - that doesn't work out very well and the rotating mass of that engine just draws far too much from the battery - even with a new starter .
From the BCI group number chart and some dimensions of what can fit in the tractor physically I come up with a Group 26 battery - what is everyone using in their twin cylinder D's ??
I see an equivalent Deka runs about $80 - anyone tried that size on one of these D's ...?
