I'll look through some of my old manuals and see if I happen to have anything for the 1253....i'll write back if i find anything
It's a Chinese clone of the Yanmar L100 with 11 HP. If you search the forum, you'll find a couple of other people have installed these in garden tractors.What make diesel and HP?
The company I bought from doesn't seem to be selling them anymore and I'm not sure I would recommend them. Some people have had good luck with Carroll Stream, but they were out of stock when I was ready to buy.Frugal, can you please tell me where you got your diesel? Maybe a web page?
