The 860 has had 50/50 mix in it since I've owned it. We don't get too many hard freezes, but enough to use antifreeze in all water-cooled outdoor equipment.
I actually knocked both plugs out of it when I was doing the restore on the tractor. I flushed quite a bit of sand out of it. I discovered the old temp bulb had sand packed in behind it.
I guess that new freeze plug was from a bad batch.
