    Electric Fuel Pump Issues

    Just for my info. what presure and flow rate should these pumps be rated at. Might be putting on a 1979 c-101 in the future. Thanks for any info.
  4. Very good explanation and pictures. Should be saved for future questions about shifter problems.

    Deck height adjustment

    When you say you have rear deck wheels up all the way do you mean they are lowered down all the way, because up all the way will lower the deck to its lowest cut setting.
  6. I totally agree with all above posts. We in this great country take a great deal for granted, that was bought with the blood of our young men and women through many years of protecting our country and way of life.We should EVERYDAY remember the great sacrifice they and there families have freely given too this great land.

    replaced 417-8 drive belt, Uh oh!

    I would say that the belt is to tight or not routed right. clutch depends on the belt getting slack enough to let it slip on the engine drive pully.

    Some days are good days...some not so much

    Sometimes you just have to take the hard road. I think taking your time everything will work out.

    Oil Capacity question

    my 1979 c-101 with shaker mount holds 1 and 1/2 qt. I just changed it if that helps.

    1979 C101 Decals.

    Very nice c-101 Ken, mine looked like that in 1979 when I bought it new but not so much now. Still does the same work it did then. Wish it had an hour meter, would like to know how many 1000 hours are on this great tractor! Thats it in my picture aith my daughter that was also new to me in 1979.

    High octane gasoline

    My son has a 2015 Subaru WRX that is turbocharged and he has to run high octane gas because with the turbo it makes more heat and the lower octane runs too hot and can cause internial heat related problems, like preignition and burnt valves and pistons. The higher octane runs cooler and will not preignite. Thats what the book says anyhow.

    High octane gasoline

    I am no expert but I have always heard that high octane gas runnes cooler in a air cooled engine. I think it is less volatile than lower octane gas.
