Didn't do anything to the Deere(s) today however I finally put my order in for a hood, side panels and screens for the 445. Anxiously awaiting the arrival as they will most definitely be a visual improvement.
Thanks! I used this sucker: Oregon 07-403 Inline Fuel Shut Off 1/4" Ball Valve , GrayLooks good. What type of valve did you use?
That's exactly what I was thinking. Thanks for the link!
Thanks! Yeah, that does look nice. I've bought the eBay black/red plastic ones. One of them felt like it turned very easily, but it sealed fine. Until I test-ran the snowblower that fall, when it leaked everywhere as soon as I turned it on
All our gas is 10% ethanol. Personally, I run fuel stabilizer all the time, even mid-season. I view it as cheap insurance, because sometimes equipment (snowblower) might suddenly not get used again, even "mid season".Just reading the posts on fuel shut off valves and wondering if this is the right approach to winterizing an engine? Stabil is made for a reason and having fuel in the system is necessary to eliminate the possibility of water from forming (condensation). Running an engine dry will never remove all the fuel from a carburetor therefore leaving it prone to having the gas gum up in areas (needle and seat and small orifices). I know everyone has their own preference and experience but I treat every tank of gas with stabilizer and make sure to keep all tanks full. I have also not had the carburetor issues I read about every day on forums in my lawn equipment or boat. JMO
That looks great! And wow, for a "little project", how many yards was that delivery? Doesn't look too little to me!Got down a base layer of crushed asphalt on my little project before some moisture is coming this weekend. I am hoping to see how it drains so that I can then contour the slope a bit more so I don't have drainage issues.
