    I have owned the bigger brother to your tractor, a 1720, for five years now...
    Bought it used with 245 one owner hours...
    I now have 550 hours on the tractor...
    Mine has been stone cold reliable...
    I service it every year and that's about it...
    You will be very pleased with your purchase...

    Congrats on a fine tractor. They are very durable, depenable and fuel efficient.
    Read the owner's manual about adding oil to the injector pump when you change the oil.

    I didn't find any mention of adding oil to the injection pump when doing an oil and filter change. Perhaps you meant when doing the fuel filter? If not maybe you could explain or point me in a direction that references that. Thanks

    In the changing the oil section of my 1310, 1910 and 2110 it stated to remove the screw in the top of the injector pump and add a few ounces of engine oil each time you change the oil.
    Maybe it's different on the 20 series and if it isn't in the owner's manual I would not be concerned. Mine was in the book where it explained which oil to use and that kind of thing.
