Re: Freebie

To explain it, the yellow indicator goes with the yellow printed numbers, so that puts it between 420 and 480 hours.

The red and white indicators share the 0-59 printed numbers around the outside (as indicated by the alternating red/white printing), with the white indicator for hours and the red indicator for minutes because the white indicator is shorter than the red indicator. White indicator is at 46, and red indicator is at 54.

So, overall hours is:

420+46 = 466 hours, 54 minutes

Re: Freebie

I would think that might be the lowest-hour freebie I'm ever going to get.

My "honey-do list" is so long it has chapters.

Re: Freebie

After spending a couple of hours on it I have found out that 1)the engine is not stuck and 2) all 4 tires hold air. Most of the time spent on it was getting leaves out of everywhere on it and a quick wash. After the wash, I can also add that the decals all look pretty good, including the sticker the dealer put on the hood.
Am I correct in assuming (I know, I know...) that because this model had an optional loader the hydraulic pump is a bit higher volume/pressure than a tractor that did not list that option?

Re: Freebie

I have a Kohler Magnum 18 in a Cub Cadet 1720, it keeps going although it has started getting warm and takes a break. I'm going to give it a carb job one of these days.

As for the valve, I can't help you there.

It sure did clean up, starters are reasonable for them. Looking forward to seeing what this needs to be back running.

Re: Freebie

I did notice one other thing... the fan for the hydro that is one the driveshaft is missing two blades. That doesn't look like a whole lot of fun to replace.

Re: Freebie

To release the hydro pull the lever up. As far as the loader and the hydro line pressure - that's a negative. That looks like a manual steer model or did I miss the steering cylinder?
What is the starter not doing? The starter drives need to be cleaned and lubricated ever 500 hours.
Also the fan is not as bad to replace as it looks. I need to replace the one on the GT19. Just another thing to do before the fuel tank goes back in. Unless you are working it hard 2 blades should keep it cool.

I don't know if it's power steering or not,I haven't looked at it that closely yet. it's still on the trailer so its hard to see under it. I do suspect that it is not though.
Thanks for answering my freewheel question, the manual i downloaded is not very clear about that.

I also don't know what the starter is doing. The PO just said he parked it a long time ago because it needed a starter. HopefullyI can get a battery in it tonight and give it a try shoo i can see what out does.

Re: Freebie

On the right side off the tractor just below the battery box on the frame there should be a series number starting with 9310**. The last two number identify which tractor of that group you have. There were about 4 different GT18's manufactured. If you can find that number I will post the spec. sheet for you.

Re: Freebie

Sorry could not read the numbers on the posted picture. Anyway you have a keeper especially if it has the optional rear pto. Has it got the 60" or the 48" deck. Either should work fine. I have had the 60" under the 16 in tall thick grass you just move slower.

Anyway here is the spec. sheet.

Re: Freebie

The deck is a 48 and, as nice as it would be to have, I'm glad it's not a 60 because that would not have fit through the gate on my trailer.

Re: Freebie

I don't work Wednesdays so I've been looking forward to working on this tractor tomorrow...wouldn't you know it snowed three inches and the rained a lot today and tomorrow is going to a windy mid-20's, and the tractor is outside with no room in my garage at all. I'm bumming.
