There's nothing worse than a oil that looks like a washed out butter color.New 6 volt battery for the 1948 Cub.
Cuss and sputter. Try this that and the other thing while coaxing ,threatening , cussing, cajoling.
Finally got it running.
Acted like a cylinder was down or a valve stuck for a while after it started.
R.P.M. stayed low while acceleration range was small. Finally cleared , and got running smooth again.
Something to do with the quart or more of water I drained out of the crankcase yesterday?
I pulled on the crank handle for the engine to get it freed up.( Felt caught to start.)
Refilled the hydraulics that leak into the crankcase too. Allowed me to raise the brushog deck and drive the tractor up near the concrete drive to work on it.
