New filter/full tank of fuel/everything shined up...$52.47 To hear it run again after 3hrs. PRICELESS !!!!!
i ran out once your not old until your in your ninety
And the bad part is not having anyone to blame. Nobody else runs mine- you always know who was at fault.
I forget what I was digging or moving that day,but I was right on my street(pretty busy)and as I started up a steep hill,BLAH!,out of diesel fuel(not really but the tank is more wide than tall,38 gal., and it quit feeding out the bottom front when tilted.Here I was,on a city street,gotta just set the brake and lower the boom and chock the wheels for safety on the asphalt.BUMMER! So I went to the station and got 5 gallons and bled the system, and finally got up the hill and outta'there.Pretty embarrassing! don-ohio (:^)
I had the 'walk of shame' once with my current tractor. When the fuel guage reads 1/2, it will run out if you are going uphill, and turning to the right.
You probably still look good at 50. You won't at 60 which is what I will be in about 6 months. Enjoy your last 10 years of youth even if your tractor is dead in the water.
I now know the sound of "just ran out of fuel." I've learned to not even try to restart it but to get more fuel into the tank....then, it will start right up again after a sputter or two. Else, lots of trial and error and bleeding to get going again.
