Well it is the end of the line for this tiller. Brought it in for yearly check and no spark so next stop junk dealer I guess. Got if for $200 about 30 years ago.
This is one of our two 32" units. Yes put them back in service after sitting on side lines for about 10 years. Workers find them to be light weight and easy to get around since they are belt driven.
This is the second time for replacing these bearings on our old 36" hdro with floating deck. It must be over 12 yiears old.
I guess this is the source for the leaking......unit has run full year
in the field with out a cleaning. I do all maintenance in teh field so
not possible to clean this stuff off.
Nice overall coating of dust. Unit has original pumps.
