Well I recently picked this up and thought I would share, I also have a few questions. Here is a video of it running after I changed the plug it fired up right away! The tiller also works fine.
The tiller doesn't have a tag, is it a model 31 tiller?
Here are some pics too. Going with advice from johndeereelfman I drained the engine and transmission last night. When I pulled the plug on the transmission about a pint of water came pouring out! Then the sludge that followed was so thick and gritty. I then filled it with diesel, drove about 40 feet and returned to the same position of the garage and drained that - again way dirty and then filled with 80w90 gear oil.
Then I drained the engine, added some diesel, removed the spark plug lead, cranked a few times and drained. I then added a little oil, cranked and drained until it was nice and clear. Then I filled her up!
Here are my questions:
Does anyone recommend a better way to drain the engine oil rather than letting it spill down the front axle and dirty it up?
In the k181 manual it says to "shoulder" the dip stick when checking the oil. The dipstick is a threaded type. What does that mean?
