lol ya it's a small tank. gun turret was optional .
i need to check the motor over because it has an oil leak that i can't see where it's coming from.
i was told it may be the flywheel seal.
it runs good,mows good and has a plow that came with it.
it's just an 8hp kohler motor.

well this one has i think a cracked cylinder[:@].
every time you rev the throttle it spits oil out the back of the cylinder.
the warmer it gets the worse it gets[:@][:@][:@][:@][:@].
anybody know a kohler mechanic?.
i'm keeping this one and get it running right.

only way to fix it is get a new block or new motor.
the cylinder and block are 1 piece.

hehe Mike are you trying to get it to do wheelies while your mowing grass .
Scott I finally got it working right (fingers crossed). I started out just putting the brass
gear out of mine in the one you gave me. When I got it back together with the servo arm on
turning it left and right in my hands it was catching and hanging [:@]... you could do it fast, then
it would make a clicking sound...... Don't know what it was. So I ended up using my servo with
parts from the one you gave me... So far seems ok, I'll find out at the track next time.
Thanks for the servo Scott
