The oil level is at the full mark. I have had issues with this carb float etc; so I turn the fuel off if I stop the tractor to do work. Tractor has been sitting for a few months; most of the winter. I don't know what synthetic oil smells like; I don't really detect gasoline smell on the dipstick. Tractor is level. I have not notice fuel dripping out of the carb at the air intake and there is fuel in the tank; so if fuel was flowing it should have drain the tank after all these months; I should have smelled gasoline when going by the tractor. It is outside in front of the shed under a canopy and I have to go by it to entry the shed. So I am probably safe to start the tractor?
