Well, at long last, the moment you’ve all been waiting for! Went out to take my summer tires outta the car, wound up in the garage, and the call of the tractor was JUST TOO STRONG! And I even had a camera with me!
Sorry, its not very good quality… And its a bit dark out. But it was SUCH a beautiful, windless night, and only -9 C, or 15.8 on the foreignheit scale! I couldn’t resist!
Those folks who said the pan seats are actually pretty comfy are RIGHT! My butt did get a bit cold tho!
And you know, I’m not sure if I should be worried about the knock I hear. I’m at maybe 2/3 of WOT all the time I’d guess, because of the throttle linkage, and it seems fairly loud. Can’t tell if that’s the infamous “Kohler Knock” or not. Or maybe the gen belt guard vibrating… or something…
Oh, and, it seems to take a couple minutes after first starting him before I can pop Wally up beyond half-throttle. If I do so, he conks out on me, even with choke on. But then things seem to warm up and he’s fine. Is this normal? I DID do a carb readjust, maybe I’m still just wrong on that.
Did I mention how much I LOVE the hydro lift? Oh man! Maybe I can take one of my spare hydro pumps (I’ve got two spares) and have someone strap it on to Little!
