    M-18 in 1872 worth repairing??

    As I mentioned it burned oil, and likely needs a carb rebuild. Hard starting when cold, and burned oil when running. I used for a season to mow with and it seemed to work ok.

    782d battery

    As a long time owner of a 1512 (MTD version of 782D) the best modifications I have done to help starting are the self regulating glow plugs, then bypassed the "glow wire", adding the high torque gear reduction starter. I do a lot of plowing in the winter here in Michigan, a lot in the dark and...
