Ya, I feel your itch. I'm leaving next Thursday to see my brother, about 8 hours one way. He picked up a Cub for me a while back and this will be the first time I could get a couple days off to go get it. Arrghh. He drove it on the trailer when he got it and I'm guessing I'll have to clean out the carb and tank as soon as I get it home with this el'crappo gas they are forcing down our throats these days. Plan on visiting the Baltimore Aquarium and maybe the B&O Railroad museum when I'm there...Hmmm, I thought I was following that post, wonder why I didn't get an update? going looking...Good luck on your trip !

You mentioned something there that just reminded me of what the guys at the Kabota deal were saying. They said that you have to use high octane gas in everything now ( even small 1 cyl mowers) because the ethenol is ruining the carbs and the engines. Has you or anyone else heard of this? :confuse: Good luck on your trip also :thumbs:

I advise that all the time, heck,..stay away from Ethanol if you can, it loves cork, rubber, aluminum, iron, steel and even the old plastics, will also eat up iron and aluminum, has killed Millions of 2-stroke engine and is currently killing all the older engines slowly, it is orgainic and has a high water content, better use a Nylon pr poly fuel tank because it will eat through the factory liner in a few years, if using a metal tank, clean it out thoroughly and re-line it with Lee W. Pedersen tank sealer or Creem, the low grade stuff will not withstand the Ethanol.
I absolutely hate Ethanol with a passion.
Sorry if i whent a little overboard Chris,..

I thought of something after I hit post. What a way for the gas companies to make more money! Make it so we have to buy the high octane and pay a higher price or use the regular unleaded and pay a higher price in the end! ( from ruining our engines) <_<

You got it,....Boi diesel was killed off with the introdution of Ethanol, a fuel that is technically illegal to make compared to Biodiesel, your only a few steps away from making corn whiskey with Ethanol.
Anyways, i don't want to kill your thread with my hatefull rambling of Ethanol, im very much looking forwards to you new baby :dancingbanana:
