Well boys, I gotta say the splash lube model 42 just wasn't doing it for me. After using it for a while I noticed it didn't run as good as I first thought. Had a weird stutter/cough that it did when you punched the throttle, and I couldn't seem to be able to tune that out if it. Also I think it had a bad exhaust valve seat or something on one cylinder... it just wasn't great in general.


As some of you may remember I picked up another pressure lube opposed a little while back. It was actually seized when I got it, and once I got it all cleaned up and spinning over good enough to start it, I ran into what turned out to be carb troubles. So unfortunately the ol' MTD has been sitting for a really long time..... But today I finally went at it and got it starting and running good!



Oh yeah, she lives!!!









Definitely VERY happy, I was starting to think she'd never run and drive again!

Here's the new mill:





18hp model 42. Runs great! I've started it cold and hot a few times while messing with other stuff, and it sure seems to start fine too, so hopefully it'll be pretty reliable. Seems to have lots of power too. It has great low end power just like it should, so I'm thinking it's pretty healthy still.

Super happy to have my main mean machine back, that's for sure, hahaha. Let me know what ya think!!

Just a message about using my picture for the header, in case anyone was wondering. Haha.


Anyways I didn't have any issues with this engine starting or running for the rest of the day, so I'm thinking it's will be good. The real test will be when I go to start it again in a week or so.

I know I've done it a million times but I figured I'd post an updated tractor shed picture again:



Back where she belongs! Haha.

Well after a week of sitting, the new oppy fired right up and ran fine! I guess we can pretty much say she's good to go now.

Couple action pictures:







Gotta clean up a few things now that she's running, just a bit of wiring and stuff like that. Good to have 'er back though!!

Thanks Mighty!

Had 'er out yesterday as well, went for like an hour or so long ride with some terrain of all sorts. Only got one picture, haha:



She performed great! Lots of cringe moments where I thought "Oh man I had to have just bent or broke something" but fortunately, no issues! Other than loosing one of the clevis' on my front bumper, which you see in the picture. Gonna have to try and find that now. lol!
