    New Massey 1529 as of 2012

    Default 1529 first oops

    Just had a stick get jammed into the right side by the engine frame. Broke the little plastic drain valve for the antifreeze. Into town tomorrow for a temp repair and then order a new one next week.

    Sorry to hear you broke something.

    Gotta be careful with those sticks.


    Best of luck,

    EDIT: You do know to fill it with antifreeze, then run the engine until the thermostat opens 'before' putting the radiator cap back on, right? (gotta 'burp') the system.

    Good point. She is back up and running I will order new part tomorrow. So far it was a one dollar hardware store fix.

    Even though they have a line that by passes the thermostat? We left the cap off when we did the coolant change to burp, never really dropped much.
