Alrighty! NOW I have enjoyment. It IS more quiet! Since I've had it (20 hours of use) you almost couldn't hear the engine for the pump whine, now the pump whine barely makes it over the engine. I'll bet the previous owner used some heavier weight cheapo stuff.
I did the anti-freeze a few weeks ago. It looked like light lime Koolaid & tested good to 10 above zero F! I did change the engine oil the day I brought it home. THAT I won't trust to let wait. And, I add some magic weasel piss to the fuel each time.... I can't remember it's name., but it's supposed to help everything from injectors to ear wax.
So now.... run the old oil through a filter & aim it at the old backhoe? That bad boy leaks enough so it never, ever, needs changing. LOL Ohhhh, I dunno.... I think it'll go to Charlies & get used in his waste oil burner. I can't make the ol' girl suffer like that. I do know the previous owner would have done that.... he ran used motor oil in the backhoe!! Ewwww.... sad, but a true story.
Labatts is the secret, huh? *smile*
