Per my previous post looking at a blown head gasket for starters. Also, hydraulics will lift a carry-all full of firewood, but not my mower. I don't have the tools, shop space, experience or time to take these on. Toying with moving on to something newer, bigger like a Ford 3000, but hate to give up on the 8N. Can anyone recommend a good shop/mechanic in the Clarke County area? Also would appreciate advice on repair vs. selling. I can handle the basic maintenance and repair, but seems like I always having to fix something and I don't have a lot of time.
