New 226 Owner - a few questions
Just bought my first! tractor - a 1985 Case Ingersoll 226. It came with a deck that seems to be in great shape, a snow blower, and a small dump trailer. I'll take some photos but the tractor seems to be in nice, totally original shape.
I have a couple of questions about it...
First, from what the seller told me, there is an issue with the throttle lever where it seems to settle from Max to mid throttle. I guess something is loose with the lever? Is there an easy solution for this?
Second, I have no service records at all on the tractor. Is there a recommended list of preventive maintenance items to take care of?
Last, I need to get a new seat, or at least a new seat cover. Any suggestions?
Oh - one other question - I haven't decided yet if I am going to keep the trailer. Any idea what these are worth approximately?
I'll post some photos as soon as I can!
