THanks so much for that outstanding post. What I loved about it is that you explained things on a very basic level and didn’t assume I knew much of anything…which I absolutely do not. I’m the least mechanically inclined person here, but I understood everything you just told me and will follow it closely.
BTW…the reason it took me so long to respond is that I’ve been dealing with another major freeze problem…the water in my house froze and cracked several water lines, which in turn flooded my basement with 4 feet of water! Oh boy…that probably doesn’t bode well for my tractor’s chances but hopefully it won’t be as bad as I thought.
Ah…the joys of a harsh winter! Thanks again for your help.
