Re: My covid news

How are you doing? Hope the worst is behind you.

We are just about as isolated as we can get and still get something to eat now and then.

Re: It's always something!

That's why I try to keep my fuel tank full. Eliminate the condensate when wet weather and temperature swings hit in fall and winter.

Re: 1010 gas won't stay running

Not totally related but I had a chain saw that did exactly what is happening to you. When cold, started right up and ran great, for about 5 minutes. Then, just dead.

It was the electronic ignition.

Re: New Brush Sweeps

A pipe fitting between hose and cylinder serves as a weak point. Better to break a cheap fitting than tear up a hose. Street els served to put the hose parallel to the cylinder and allowed easy clamping. Might make building a guard easier too.

Re: New Brush Sweeps

Nice setup. I had a D4 with a blade setup like yours. My problem was brush breaking hose fittings right at the cylinders. I put street els on the hoses and a hose clamp holding the hose tight to the cylinder. Reduced the problem greatly. Still carried easy out and extra fittings! ๐Ÿ˜‚

I had a condenser give me grief. If you have more problems, you might replace that.

Re: JD 1010 buying advise

Lucky doesn't apply to crawlers. No such thing. If it was an easy fix it most likely would have been done.

It will have to be really cheap....
