Good evening!

On my GT19 it has the analog hour meter with the 3 arms. I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to know how many times the arms went around one full turn. Looking at it now it shows 110hrs give or take. But for an '86 I'm pretty sure there's more than that on it. Anyone have the same issue?

She's pretty mint though Luc I wouldn't be surprised if there was only 110 hrs on it. Post some pics of the old girl for everyone!

Looks excellent for an 86. No clue on the meter though. I wish my 86 Gravely looked that good.

Thanks! The next thing we have to do is get the carburetor tuned. It still runs rough at mid-high throttle, so we'll restore the jets to factory spec and go from there. The tractor sat for a year before the guy sold it to me. I've been able to work most of the old gas out of it, but we'll get it all squared away before winter.

I was away for work, but from what I heard about his visit was that he was beyond himself with all the tractors around, or "tactors" as he calls it!

Did you price out a carb kit for the Kohler? I guess mine came in not long ago. I still gotta get that done.

Not yet. That might be the best bet eh? Then all the gaskets/seals are brand new, wouldn't have to look that way for a while anyway.

On the question about the hour meter, I have found no way to tell how many times they have went around.

Nice! I need to learn more about the gravely side of the family tree.

I actually didn't know they made a tractor that resembles the ariens GT!

It's a GT18 model 931032 with a Gravely good. I think it was made for a time right after Ariens bought Gravely. Gravely diehards don't really consider it a "Gravely" since it is almost all Ariens. I am running the S-16 attachments on it in that pic.
