    2082 hydraulic lift problems.

    Model 149 with a 44” mowing deck

    Do you have the short lift links on it or does it have the long ones. If you want a longer cut length you could get the taller supersteer axle off a later cyclops cub cadet and put 26-12x12s on the rear.

    Ag tires for XT3 GSX

    Weight in a rear mounted box will give you more leverage making the front end lighter.

The 154 had an IH carb and a manifold that was smaller. The 184 was just like the 185 except it was painted red had a 86 series grill...

    Mikes Very Own 169 Refurbish

    That is because of two things. First the cooler the air is the more dense it is which makes it harder to compress, and second motor oil gets thicker as well. Kohler wants the ACR to open the exhaust valve .031 to .042 they also say the tab can be bent only four times before it will break.
