Re: Motor question.

If this motor runs very well, that means it’s been run. If there is no dipper tray, then it should’ve burned up. I wonder if you have a pressurized oil system. If you were to pull the oil...

Re: Wisdom of Stopping Engine by Choking It Out

Sounds like an old wives tale. Wether it would actually wash the cylinders a little, I don’t know, it it makes me cringe just thinking about it.!

Re: Engine not starting.

Re: Starter Bendix bolt broken

By the way, I don’t care for the tractor style bendix, so I remove the starter every 5,000 miles or so and repair or replace those bolts. It’s just maintenance.

You’ll spend more time and energy, fiddle farting around, trying to Jerry rig it, then if you just did it the right way.
