Update: We decided to tune the carburetor running mixture, idle speed, idle mixture. The 8N now idles smoothly at the bottom of the throttle quadrant, accelerates smoothly, and we can cut grass in 2nd gear at 2/3 to 3/4 throttle. Huge difference in the way the engine sounds and pulls.
Our next project is the hydraulic system. Left drive axel (from driver's seat) is definitely leaking fluid from the center (seal?). Also the hydraulics operate, but the lift does not stay lifted, it slowly looses height. The fluid is at the proper level as shown by the dip stick. It appears to be light tan in color, is this normal?
