    I have the heads off of my Kohler K582, and I've noticed oil seeping past the rings on both cylinders when it sits for an extended period of time(24 hrs). It leaks enough that sometimes it will leak onto the floor. Is this normal or should I be worried about problems with my rings? Is this a...
  2. MTD Tractor Forum
    I want to service the hydro in my JcPenny MTD 990. The manual say to us Fram PH16 filter and 20 Weight oil with added zinc. I was going to use a NAPA/WIX filter instead but I'm unsure about the oil. I looked around and straight 20W oil with zinc doesn't show up. That leaves me with 2...

    Now that my T-16 project is running good, I want to start getting her ready to plow snow. I have a set of chains on the way, but have yet to do anything with fluids. I had planned on changing the motor oil to a 10w-30, but had someone tell me it is better to just keep the 30 weight i have in...

    Hi all! I thought this post would go here (in the "Safety Discussion" area. I'm not sure why the "Barn" section is along though) I have access to 200+ gallons of food-grade mineral oil (for free). My question is, can I use this for ballast in tire? (tubeless or/and tire tube) Thx;)

    I have a couple questions regarding winter operation of a garden tractor First off, Oil: The owners manual (Ford YT 16H) recommends SAE 30 for summer and 5W-30 for winter. That's fine, but I've also ready it's preferrable to use non-detergent oil on older motors. I can only find SAE 30...

    Anyone else a believer in STP oil treatment? I use the stuff in every old motor I own. Try the screwdriver test to a friend..... Dip the blade end of a flat tip screwdriver into some stp... Hold the screwdriver out vertically by the handle so the blade is pointed up... Have a friend try to...
