to start the story

for the past few years the dip stick was coming out when the motor was running, so I tided it down so that it was not popping out.

it uses about a 1/2 cup of out after about 4 hours of use.  not bad.

 

so today I check the oil down the 1/2 cup of oil so I fulled it up.

oh this is the GT I use for my FEL

 

I was work on turning out my compost plie - 7 pick-up loads of sheep manure

got done in around a 1/2 hour and putting it back in the garage and I notice oil on the floor

checked the oil and down over the 1/2 cup oil and oil all over the front of the motor

 

had to mow the yard and it had to wait to work on it

 

got the FEL off and moved into my work shop

cleaned the motor off and started it up to see where the oil is coming from

it was coming from the gasket area for the oil pan

the bolts looked a little loose.

will it is time to see what is wrong

pulled the motor out and checked the oil pan bolts - all 4 bolt were loose.

so I wanted to know way I was having so much blow by.

 

removed the oil pan - all looked good inside

removed the head and the piston

checked the rings on the piston and the oil rings were all aligned up

checked the side gap on the rings and all are less then 0.005 ( good)

remove the top ring to check the cylinder wear

used the ring to check the gap in the cylinder and around 0.045 checked the rest of the cylinder .

checked 3 different spots in the cylinder and all were around the 0.045 gap

 

so I was going to just hone the cylinder and put it back together

good plans allow go bad

 

while putting the top ring back on the piston it broke ( oh sh**)

now I guess new rings, I just as well do it right and do a good overhaul 

that way it will last almost another 40 years

 

 

my question is why and how did the oil rings align up?

and why after 40 years did the oil pan bolt get loose?

Is this a k181?  rf 110?  I have the same dip stick problem but heard it common on the older coolers

got the Kohler K181 8hp cleaned and put back together

 

had the charge the battery a about a half hour (better compression now)

started right up and set the carb and it starts great and sounds great too

will put the FEL back on the 110 and put it back to work

 

this is my first garden tractor and I plan on keeping it around for a long time

here are some pictures I took a while back

the FEL was made by Wright-Way here in Iowa

I brought in pieces from a guy that brought out one of their shops

He got around 100 units and sold them for years

I got the last one he had

I got the frame bucket and undercarriage, a pump, valve, and four cylinders 

I had to make a new tank for it 

I replace the two cylinders for the bucket - they were to short to work right

 

brought the steel pipe and hoses

 

I set it up to fit on the JD 110, but it does fit and work on my 212 or 214

lyall:

 

Nice looking loader. Even though I don't really have a use for one, it would be cool to have. I would guess that steering is hard with a load in the bucket.

I do not use the bucket to much

I made a single fork from an old metal cloth line post

I use it a lot to turn my large compost piles

get to get it back on to turn the compost

got 7 pick-up loads of sheep manure to turn

it has gone down to just over half the size it was when it started

 

need to get around 14 more pick-up loads of sheep manure and get it cooking

Hello gents , new to the forum , but have my own new 71 110 . Mine was blowing all the oil out the front of the engine also and behind the breather cover is a reed valve assembly that has to be installed correctly to prevent this . Mine was not to say the least the reed was broken and the bottom hole in the plate was stopped up with silicone . A new reed plate fixed that and a rebuild this winter will make it good as new, burns a bit of oil now .
