Ha Ha Jim ya would have to think that with two jobs and 12 hr days huh !Hey Tom, Do you ever sleep. You beat me to it again!! Jim
why would you do that ???? If there is a prob. you would never know untill its to late,more money IMHO. Check it out and save your self a ton of $$$$. Take it down worst you will spend on a tare down is gaskets and seals,cheep. Peace of mind priceless devildevildevilif it were me i would grease bearing , put oil in bowl, check for tight bolts undernieth ,check for cracks in loader.pull loader out check for slop by grabbing shaft. run the thing , see if it vibrates, slips or is just a dog. reinspect bowl fluid.regrease. then if no problems run it untill fall & freshen up if needed & then you will get an idea if you want more rpm .thats because it summer & hot here finally, i don't want to miss any boating .
