hi its me again!!! do you ever think its a vicious circle and your gts are conspiring againts you, just when you seen to fix one thing something else goes, just when you have given up on that peice of junk it starts to behave, only to have your pride and joy gt stick it to you the next day .  i always seen to have 1-2 tractors needing attention, maybe i should just buy a new one when they break down

That is allways the way. When I fix one, another acts up. I got the new Simplicity 725 running so the Bolens 1250 quit. Murphy was an optimist. Good Luck, Rick

This is the down-fall of owning/operating 30 to 50 year old tractors.

Although they are in pretty good shape, repair parts are not always readily available.he

I have always said that if you own something long enough, you WILL need to make repairs.

The good part is we usually have another GT at our disposal when one of our prize works have a breakdown.

That's a sign they are feeling neglected. You gotta play with them more.

That's from condensation. Buy some seafoam!
