Firing it up Again..... Any tips or tricks?

Postby DieselDennis » Mon Jun 24, 2013 9:43 pm

Just need to top off the fluids and I think the Cub will be ready to go. Still needs coolant. Still need to grease the distributor shaft. And it needs a splash of gas. And the oil cup needs filled.

Anything else I need to check? The oil is fresh with a new filter. Any first time starting tips?

Make sure oil pump is primed. Check to make sure you have oil pressure after starting.

Might want to refer to the Owner's Manual for all the various lube and fluid locations before cranking her up.
