Sears SS18 TWIN no. 917.25961
Going to be resurrecting this, my old man's tractor, bringing it back to life after 35 yrs. of sitting idle in the garage.
1 thing I know is that it has been in there and kept bone dry for all that time.
1 thing I don't know is how he put it away.
He has know idea, which blows my mind, and I just can't go there with him cause it'll turn into an argument.
So it'll just be easier for me to do a quick check. I plan on doing the basics. Drain fuel from tank, fuel lines, pull plugs....
I've already preemptively acquired some basic parts that my gut save time and aggravation by just replacing the before firing the motor. Fuel lines, in line fuel filter, air cleaner, oil filter, spark plugs, fuses, intake manifold gasket, diaphragm gasket, couple other misc. gaskets....obviously new battery
I was thinking I should probably pick up a new v belt?
I think those parts should just about do it for basics.....
Anyone have any other input as to anything I'm missing so I can get the parts and have them in hand before I make the drive from MA to PA to grab this pig I'm open ears, please chime in.
It has an Onan MS-BG 2980a 18 HP engine.
When my mother told me they gave away the 48" mower deck we had for it and metal drop gate trailer for hauling wood and stuff around I just about lost it. Oh well.....
Looking forward to this and will be sure to post up along the way!!
