That was oil? Man- if I didn't know better, I'd swear the carb had flooded the crankcase with fuel! What idiot did that?

Well my bet on who would be the guy I bought the tractor off of for 50.00 LOL

I made and posted the 42 second long snip it out of the video if any one wanted to pass it on for a laugh...

Can't say I've ever wondered.

Did you check the oil before trying to start it? Only reason I ask is that's one of the first things I do with a unknown motor.

We've had 2 of the 14.5 OHV singles. They smoked like crazy if you got the rpms too high(ungoverned).

Nice cheap tractor. I'd slap the deck on and sell, or mow away!

I run into this every few tractors or so but this one was the worst EVER and so I knew it would make a great youtube clip LOL

I plan to see if I can get the other hydro I have up and running if so I will swap on a deck to this one and MOD the other hydro with a bigger engine in it.

I had shared your original post on the Facebook page. That was some insane flooding. How far up the stick was it?

Sometimes you really gotta wonder what on earth runs through some people's minds. Could it be as simple as "If I put more in, I can go longer between top-ups"?

Maybe he was yet another bonehead consumer that never changed the oil, and somehow noticed one day that it was way low. Maybe out. Then, he got overzealous pouring oil in, overdid it, and couldn't figure out how to get the excess back out.

Or maybe he overfilled it on purpose, to protect stuff if he wasn't planning on running it for a while?
