I added this tractor to my collection recently and it is definitely one of my favorite tractors and probably the next one I restore. I need to add a few parts to it to complete the electric-lift three-point hitch, which I can borrow from another three-point I have. It did come with a deck which is in pretty good condition. Engine runs but a git rough and hard to start.
One thing I am curious about .. this Onan B48M does not appear to have an oil filter. I thought all Sears tractor Onan engines had an oil pump and filter but now I am starting to think that some do not. Any clarification would be appreciated.
So if it is splash lubricated, does anyone anyone have any general maintenance tips.
All thoughts, suggestions, questions and comments appreciated. Here is an initial look.
