Hi, im 14 and im from lakeland florida. me and my brother but a sears suburban 16 two years ago and that started our project. We plan to make it a muddin monster. i plan to find another suburnban and build it up as a tug o war lawnmower. *yes, they host lawnmower tug o wars in fort myers. call me a hick if you want.* anyways we currently have the carburator took apart soaking in some gas *caught on fire yesterday and had to turn the water hose on it xD* it need a new cylinder head, we stripped all the threads from the spark plug hole. but this 16hp tecumseh is a beast! we have ran it with 0 oil for weeks at a time with no problems, it smokes now *i think the rings are bad...* but it still chugs along even with compression loss! its got a 3 speed high and low tranny. *type 633A78* and weve pulled everything from stumps outta the ground to trucks outta the mud with frozen brakes. its a hefty little tractor. we plan on giving it a few inch lift and some vtread tires. but anyways thats it for now as i have a doctors apointment to go to...

EDIT: and also, does anyone know what kind of oil i should put in the tranny of our suburban? we just pulled the tranny last night to clean it up, paint it, change the pully and the oil in it...thanks in advance.
