I'm new to the group and a new 8N owner, and there's plenty to learn! First: this may be the first 6V system I've had: the battery was kept on a maintainer in the fall/winter by the previous owner, which I continued doing. But then I forgot to put it back on recently and the battery went nearly dead. It did charge back up but the engine turns over with not great power, more slowly, I think, than when the weather was warmer. Maybe the oil isn't the right viscosity, or maybe I'm expecting too much from a 6 volt battery system. The battery that's in there looks like it has some years on it - would a new one turn it over stronger or is the system just generally slower? What's a good battery brand to get? Also, I bought this to plow snow and I'd like a cab for it. I've looked at them online and some on you tube. I'm thinking of building a wooden one-has anyone seen/know of any good plans? Or a decent universal fit to buy which isn't super expensive? Thankyou.
