610 mule oil level

Recommended Posts

Strange issue and it has happened twice.  Changed oil twice and after a while when oil is checked it is always to full on dip stick.  Looks like at least 1/2 qtr.  I have looked at manual and put in amount called for, 1.16 qt without filter.  What would cause level to appear to full.  Thanks

Does it smell like gas?

And you said with out filter, so you don't fill the filter, correct?

Or do you just leave the filter?

Kinda hard to tell about gas in oil, didn't smell to much like it had gas in oil but could be wrong.  Last time I changed oil I didn't fill with oil before installing.   Have had a problem with plug fouling after about 2 hrs meter run time, plug will be black as sut, no oil or gas smell on it just really black.  Wonder if the two are related.  If gas is in oil what could cause this, maybe carb. letting gas flow by.  Thinking of putting in a gas line cut off, that should eliminate that concern until I get it my mechanic to look in to plug fouling.  What you think and thanks for responding.  Mule has 360 hrs light yard use only.

Isn't there a transaxle or transmission bolted up to the motor? Could have a bad seal that is leaking fluid through.

Not sure about transmission but I think it is mated but it has a red fluid in it  80-90 weight and I checked it.  It has a separate reservoir and dip stick.  It was a little low but not bad so I topped it off.  Also changed oil only no filter, took just a tad over 1 qt.  I measured oil drained out and it must have been at least 1.5 qts.  Mule is making oil, LOL.  Will monitor and see if it stays at current level.  Thanks again

It's easy to pass fuel through the carb if the needle valve is worn and not making a good seal.

Fuel pump also.  Its vacuum operated so if the pump diaphragm is ruptured it can literally suck fuel into the crankcase.  The good news is there are some really inexpensive fuel pump replacements available.

I have a fairly new fuel pump on it from a previous repair and It maybe the needle valve.  I will monitor the oil level and see what happens.  Thanks again

Be sure to monitor it CLOSELY.

Im sure you know, but gas will dilute the oil, and next thing ya know, (rattle rattle rattle BANG!)  :D

Took mule to my mechanic who has worked on several mules in the past and let him see what might be the problem.  I have read on several different places that the mule is bad about fouling plugs for whatever reason.    I will update when  get mule back with what  he found and hopefully fixed.

Got the mule back late yesterday and guy said he cleaned carb and replaced needle valve and set float. Hopefully this will solve the gas  in oil problem.  The fouling of plug was due to  the foam air filter.  It was deteriorated and when wide open throttle it pulled it into paper filter and starved mule of air causing more  gas than air and foul plug.  Haven't had time to run mule any so will report back when I have run time.

Update: Have driven mule about 15-18 miles at about 3 hrs on clock and plug looks pretty good and oil level is OK.  Will update as I get more run time, I think it is important to update these post so others can get info for similar problems they may have.  Merry Christmas to all

      I want to get at the air filter and check for dust, etc. I have a 2020 Massimo 400 Buck. The manual says to lift the cargo bed. Okay, then pop the "clips" on the air filter "box." Well, I don't see any clips on the box, only about ten screws holding the box-top down. Did I miss something? This should not be hard to get to. (Ha!) Please help.

      Can you send me the service manual for a Massimo Buck 400?
      Thanks.

      I have the factory service manual available for the Buck 400. Just send me a message with your email and I'll get it to you. Although there is no charge for this, it would be great if  you would visit my website where you could donate any amount to help do things like this with others who need it. Again, there is no charge for this manual, and no obligation to donate. But if you did, I would thank you for sure. Have fun on the trails. www.warriorsoffroad.com

      Here is the Service Manual for the 2017 Cub Cadet Challenger 750 and it is compatible with the Hisun 500/700 manual as well.
      I paid $45 for it but I want to share with everyone because they are a pain in the ass to find.
      Enjoy!
