Re: Oil Smoke

I once stopped the kohler in my neighbors lawn tractor from heavy smoking by running a healthy dose
of MMO through the gas tank.
I'm thinking it may have been a sticking piston ring (or somesuch).

I wasn't aware of that.
I bought a can of Cub Cadet Yellow a week or so ago without looking at it.
Just saw it is by Yenkin Majestic Paint Corp in Columbus, OH.

Re: Valspar paint for CC

Tractor Supply also sells the Valspar tractor & implement paints for a reasonable cost.
I've used some of them and was satisfied with the results.
Keep in mind I don't do restorations and am somewhat easily appeased.
