Well, a few days ago I pulled the head off my suburban 12 to take a look see. it looks all good in there but it smokes a bit. Well, today I went out and buttoned it all up and rewired it so it could run with out the battery. I got that done then decided to go for a spin. While I was riding around I spyed my mower deck and thought "hmmm, I think I should get that on here." So I got out the handcart and hauled it to the garage and trew it under the tractor. I got everything hooked up belts tightened and running smoothly. The end result is this

Now tomorrow I am gonna perform an oil change, get a new deck drive belt and sharpen the blades (I know I should have done that BEFORE I put the deck on but I forgot lol).

Good someone is getting ready for spring, maybe you'll talk it into actually coming. Tired of snow.

Looking good, hope the smoke isn't serious.

It shouldnt be. Right now it has 10w 30 in it. I am going up in weight to 15w 40 and see how it does. It shouldnt smoke as much hopefully.

well i got the oil changed in both the suburban and custom. The suburban seems to run better lol. It also doesnt smoke as bad.
Now I just have to wait for my dad to pick up the new deck belt.
I am guessing that its about 100"s long by 5/8s so we will se if it works.

videos will be up later of the belt and the oil changes.
