Well the cub has been getting hard to start an i noticed a little carbon blowing out from around the head so its time to change it. This got me wondering how old are you tractors an is the head gasket still the oringinal one or have you changed it an if so how old is your gt?
Its that time for a little maintence

Well most of my Garden Tractors are 40+ years old. Most have had their head gaskets changed a time or two. For these older machines it was routine maintenance every few hundred hours to pull the head and clean the carbon.

I've got a Roper gt18t that the engine,trans,tires are all orginal. The deck was replaced about 15 years ago, but all that has been done is just normal maint. The motor smokes a little and the tires are getting to the point of needing replaced, but is still a warhorse. Hope it outlives me

I tend to take the heads off clean the carbon off and inspect the bores before the tractors go "in service"
