  2. I'm pretty sure my neighbours don't even know what Stabil is--what I got out was "pinkish", but mostly clear jelly--a nearly perfectly "float bowl" shaped ring (minus the float) of he stuff...
  3. 100% right on the pink junk being Stabil. It’s no help for Ethanol. This is a discussion I have with customers all the time when I test their “100%” gasoline and show them 4-8% ethanol in it. I always recommend the best non-ethanol you can find PLUS an ethanol treatment. Ethanol-shield* and Startron* have both worked ok.
  4. ON my carburettor stuff that sits i generally drain the tank then run 'em 'til they stop. Next give a squirt or two of Marvel Oil from a pump can into the fuel line and crank it over as bit--fresh fuel when 'tis the season and they just pop right off...
  5. Pink stuff in the bowl? That sounds like out of Date StaBil. I've cleaned more carbs for people who've used Stabil than any other treatment. I started using StarTron. Haven't had 1problem with my own equip.
  6. This damned ethanol contaminated gasoline they make us buy has a shelf life of about 3 months, unless in a very tightly sealed container¹--and that's here in FL were we have just 10% booze in the gas. On anything with carburettor that has been siting for more than 4 months the first hing to do is rebuild (or at least disassemble and clean) the carburettor. Lat Fall I repaired a number of "no-start" generators for my neighbours that had been improperly stored; they all had nasty jellied masses of pinkish crap in the float bowls. I've not found that any of the commonalty available "fuel stabili
  7. Ben1098 put some good info here. I have had situations where a customers’ fuel is so bad that even if I put good fuel directly into the cylinder, the bad fuel spraying in from the injector IMMEDIATELY diluted my good fuel and it wouldn’t burn. I had to completely remove the bad fuel source before it would even pop.
  8. Appreciate the info brother. Good to know.
  9. I put larger tires on a Dodge Dakota years ago. I figured that the larger mud and snow tread would help in the winter. Being that this was a manual transmission (this was a basic regular cab 4X4 no frills truck), it really dropped the power significantly. Learned an expensive lesson then. If there's a way to change the final drive gearing, that would help. But that's also an expensive ordeal.
  10. Will this parts link for the Coleman ( made by Hisun) 550 help? http://3546502.shop.netsuite.com/s.nl/c.3546502/n.1/sc.27/category.137049/it.C/.f
  11. Well...I guess I need to reconsider my mod. I sure didn't account for all of that. I shoulda mentioned, it's going to be a street legal pavement queen. I'm getting DOT tires and thought it would be nice to beef it up just a little since I'm going to get new wheels as well. Can you suggest anything to me? BTW appreciate the in depth research/knowledge.
  12. I have had good luck crossing Massimo parts over to the Cub Cadet Challenger 550.
  13. Last week
  14. 20-years-old you got your money's worth...
  15. Made this today: It's a tow-bar/eye for the front end: The frame had the perfect place to mount such a thing,--a nice flat-faced robust crossbar with two 10 mm captive nuts: So I used an 11' long piece of 2"x2"x1/4'hot roll angle iron to make a bolt-on towing eye (also good anchor point if using a snatch block for a double-line pull. Painted up and installed: Haven't used it yet but per my calculations it should be good to 12,000 to 15,000 lbs.
  16. I tried motorcycle doctor, they do not have parts for the T-Boss series
  17. got the new cable. 3 days shipped to dealer. 👍👍
  18. I play golf. At my local golf course, they use electric golf carts to pull a chain of about 8 electric golf carts to the club house. Sure it's a short distance, but it's still a heavy load. I would think a SxS would be a better option - some can carry 4 or 6 passengers. Maintenance and gas would need to be evaluated as to availablility. What would the import duty be if you brought your own ride vs in-country purchase? Would it be comparable to an air-conditioned car?
  19. Unfortunately registering a UTV and getting a "tag" (Southern speak for license plate) in Florida is not possible as they are specifically excluded from highway use. He only way around this is to get it declared a Low Speed Vehicle which requires the MCO (Manufacturers Certificate of Origin) stating clearly : "This Vehicle Conforms To Federal Regulations Under Title 49 CFR 571.500 Standard N. 500 Low Speed Vehicles". This requirement is stated unambiguously in the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLDHSMV) (procedures manual TL-63) The MCOs for most ATVS and UTVs do
  20. 2014 POLARIS RZR S LIMITED WITH EPS On Ebay https://www.ebay.com/itm/POLARIS-RZR-S-LIMITED-WITH-EPS/184682254894?
  21. Another option would be to buy a KN filter with the 17mm nut on the filter.
  22. @Verno At wouldn't say at its best.LOL. 2 5/16-24 screws, i ground a taper on the end of. And a 7/8" nut on the end. Changing my oil filter has never been easier or quicker,and saves my knuckles.
  23. I have a 2018 T Boss 550. It is currently in the shop for an exhaust leak. The shop is telling me that Massimo (SCAutosports) is out of the exhaust gaskets along with numerous other parts. Is there any other resources for parts and is this a problem anyone else is having?
  24. @Pamm r in your case some filter pliers may be better, if i remember correctly the filter on the 610 is facing frontwards, and there is a little more space to work with. https://www.amazon.com/Custom-Accessories-Pennzoil-19444-Filter/dp/B01D4QPRHM/ref=sr_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=oil+filter+pliers&qid=1614302793&sr=8-6
